Small Walk: To the Horse Barn

At my wife’s childhood home, the question is whether to walk to the horse barn or along the beach (which is really the Narragansett Bay).  On this afternoon, we chose the horse barn first.  This takes us through a New England beach-community neighborhood for a couple of miles.

I take me camera and discover views.  They talk about who lived in this or that house four decades ago, critique gardens and house additions (most of which appear to ruin the beach-community look with ostentatious want-to-be mansions…  Sorry, Newport is across the bay).  Not being from a water-dominated home-town, I am amused at the boats in people’s yards. Thus, this small walk documents boats in various states of readiness for summer fun.

About hermitsdoor

Up here in the mountains, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here", which really means "We wouldn't go the trouble to do that". Another concept is that "If you don't know, we ain't telling." For the rest, you'll have to read between the lines.

    So you are in Massachusetts? Rick and I used to go visit Cape Cod almost yearly, and went off-season to avoid the crowds.

    Boats, horses, and the sea. Who could ask for anything more?

    Ha! This looks the road to my house–boats everywhere!

      One was actually being prepared for summer launch in a couple of weeks. We know the owner & stopped to chat with him. The others? I suspect that much ambition is behind their current dry-dock locations. ⛵️
