kennedy memorial, barnstable, massachusetts. there is no cape cod without JFK, that’s for sure. i was exploring after work – how could i go home when it’s sunshiney? – and found this memorial. this is a view from the back.
farmer’s market spoils, north coventry, connecticut. we can’t wait for the coventry regional farmer’s market to open up! fortunately they had a pop-up market at the topmost herb farm and we got our local food fix. apple crepes for lunch, cheese and honey for home.
swings by mirror lake, storrs, connecticut. i was thesis writing outside on one of the first warm days of spring when i saw a family playing by the tree swings. i couldn’t have staged this if i had tried.
the knob, falmouth, massachusetts. my favorite little spot on the cape. i didn’t care that it was 55 degrees out, i took my shoes off and rolled up my jeans and walked along the shore anyway. it’s a little piece of beach heaven.
uconn horses, storrs, connecticut. how have i not shared pictures of our horses yet! these little guys are so friendly, i love visiting them after class on my drive home. about 80 horses currently live at lorentzen stables on campus.
honey island swamp, slidell, louisiana. pearl river eco tours took us out on a small boat to experience life in a louisiana wetland. it was stunningly beautiful and quiet, with spanish moss hanging from the trees and glassy water. bald cypress and tupelo gum trees lined the water, and it actually smelled delicious. (go figure.)
