Boston is the canvas for a relatively new restaurant, The Liquid Art House, and it’s a masterpiece.

Snowy Owls Are Back on Plum Island

It’s so cold on Plum Island already that the snowy owls have arrived! Last year the Parker River Wildlife Refuge, which makes its home on Plum Island, was a popular spot for the snowy owl beauties and quite the attraction for visitors and locals. I haven’t seen one yet, but will keep my eye out. This is a shot I took of pretty Plum Island.

Moody Fourth of July

BrqTa55CcAAmV49

Mother Nature decided to provide the fireworks this year up in the Boston area. Yesterday in Newburyport, the lightning show was outstanding. And the rainbow that followed was mystical and beautiful. Today, it has rained all day so festivities were canceled. But I managed to go for a great run through the Plum Island Wildlife Refuge in a steady rain and loved every minute of it. The surf is up, thanks to Arthur somewhere out there. I don’t know why I love love love moody days at the beach more than sunny days. I guess it has something to do with my Scottish roots. My grandfather George Sutherland Bain hails from Wick, Scotland, so there you go.

The rest of the weekend promises to be perfect. Enjoy! And Happy Fourth of July!
