Entries in sea (7)


Rockport, MA

My favorite part about living in the city is that we can drive to a different town and beach at any moment because it's close enough to not feel like too many hours in the car, but far enough to feel like we've gotten away for a day.

The little seaside towns and shops are definitely my favorite part of exploring. I especially prefer when it's off-season because it's less crowded and the atmosphere is not as chaotic. Also, the weather is moody.

This time it was ROCKPORT, Massachusetts. And it was for Wicked Peacock, "lobstah" rolls from Roy Moore and trying to catch a glimpse of the twin lighthouses on Thatcher Island.

Whale Watching, Cape Ann

“Consider the subtleness of the sea; how its most dreaded creatures glide under water, unapparent for the most part, and treacherously hidden beneath the loveliest tints of azure. Consider also the devilish brilliance and beauty of many of its most remorseless tribes, as the dainty embellished shape of many species of sharks. Consider, once more, the universal cannibalism of the sea; all whose creatures prey upon each other, carrying on eternal war since the world began. "
Herman Melville, Moby Dick

I've never been whale watching before, so when my sister got all of us tickets for my birthday in July, I was BEYOND thrilled about the prospect!

It's incredible that we're able to venture out, far out, into the Atlantic ocean, where deep, DEEP waters hide these wondrous creatures and if you're lucky you get to hang with the whales for a bit. How awesome is that? I can't even...


Smooth, gentle, ENORMOUS. I felt very small. We all did.

Come with me to Gloucester, Massachusetts where we set off from Cape Ann one early morning...

Greece: Santorini, Goodbye 

Guys, it's finally time to say goodbye to Santorini, and Hotel Sunny Villas, easily one of the most unique hotels in the world.

Here's a last look.


Greece: Santorini, Cat and...


That was what this cute cat was intently gazing at.

Wasn't at all fazed when I went right up with my camera.
