Gone Fishin’

Happy Friday everyone! I’m on a much needed vacation this week so I don’t have a much to say.

Instead I offer a series of photos of my favorite places. For vacation I like to take day trips with younger son. Older son is entrenched in the teen-man cave and hubby doesn’t have as much vacation time as I do. But we don’t mind. We have plenty of fun without them.

Freeman Farm, Old Strubridge Village, Sturbridge MA
Stonington Point, Stonington, CT – This movie theater facade was added for the movie Hope Springs (Meryl Streep/Tommy Lee Jones flick).
Yankee Candle Flagship Store – Deerfield, MA

If you have a moment, I’m blogging over at the Scribes about – Decisions, Decisions.

How about you? Where do you like to go for fun and relaxation?

Happy Friday everyone! Don’t miss my guest over at the Scribes today – Lisa Kessler, author of Night Walker

This week’s post is a short one. I’m working on MYSTIC STORM, Zephyr’s story, so I’m a bit preoccupied! I’d like to share with you some photographs of the enchanting real world setting for the book.

Stonington Point is a historic area of Stonington, Connecticut. Just miles away from Mystic, CT.

The houses are beautiful! I love the blue door.

Roses in bloom. I like to imagine that Zephyr would stop to smell the roses.

I imagined the Gallup Inn, Zephyr’s hotel and spa before I ever visited Stonington. I was delighted to find an actual house that fit my imaginary vision. And this is actually a hotel. While we visited, a movie with Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep was filming. (No, sightings, but we did see the film crew set decorating.)

I loved all the colorful buildings!

One last look at the beautiful ocean.

I hope you enjoyed the brief tour! See you all next week!
