We live far from Wayland,so that idea was out, but we live 5 minutes to the beach,so that was the plan.We have lots of beaches here, every town has a beach, but then there is the big beach,It is called "Nantasket" It is big, it has all kinds of attractions, condos, cottages, so it looks to me like a vacation spot. Actually,Bostonians usually have a house in Maine, New Hampshire, or Cape Cod. A lot of them have a cottage here in Nantasket which is the big beach. Or they come for the day, for the week etc. We arrived and, of course it was so busy, but what a relief. ]
I know a lot of you who read my blog live in the Southern part of the USA so this weather, is not news to you, but for us here in Boston, is a bit too hot, usually summers are short, not too hot, the water is cold, it gets better at the end of July. So, this is as bad as a snowstorm, I kept thinking about my food in the freezer, cleaning the fridge out,after not having electricity for so many hours. be the "buzz" word today was, "do you want ice, and snow??"
Some of my favorite books (summer reading)
Here are some pictures of Rachel Ashwell's new project, her B&B in a ranch, I brought her books also to the beach. I thought you would like to see her new rooms, so cute. The B&B is a series of cottages in a big ranch. Each one is decorated with vintage wallpaper, a lot of white, and very romantic furnishings and accessories. Go online for rates and availability if you are interested.
