Exploring & Escapades

bits & pieces of my travels

Month: July, 2016

Hazy, cloudy, rainy day in the mountains. Grey on green, depth ever expanding.

A quick trip up for my cousins’ grad party, and an excuse to play with my camera in their beautiful back yard.

Sunset via Brant Rock.

There are some places in the world that are physically, aesthetic. This place, for me, is even more. Emotionally, soulfully beautiful. A part of my core. This is the beach that has been mine ever since before I could walk. It’s where we’d collect rocks and shells as kids. Sneak away to in high school. The place I came to sit by myself when I needed it. A place I always find myself when I’m home.

Watching the sunset here with my little brother, throwing rocks into the ocean. It’s so special to me. Everything here is. I hope he feels that way too, someday.

Green Harbor Marina & Brant Rock Beach.

I’ve been coming here since I was literally weeks old. 

Sitting on the boat, dinner at the Venus, icecream down the street. It never, ever, gets old. 

July Third

My absolute favorite day of the year: the Third of July in Marshfield. Sitting on the beach all day, lighting fireworks on the beach all night. Tradition, family, friends.

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

This is my America. This is why I go back.

Shining Sea Bikeway

New favorite discovery in my own back yard: Shining Sea Bikeway. Round-trip, 21+ mile paved bike path from North Falmouth to Woods Hole (right at the ferry port).

We parked in Falmouth, rented bikes (there’s a shop RIGHT at the start of the trail), then biked all the way down, stopping for cranberry bogs, marshes, and beaches. IT’S SO PRETTY! And it was a PERFECT day for us. 

Plus, when we arrived, we rewarded ourselves with lobster rolls and ice-cream. So I don’t know how it gets any better than that.

Seaport summer evenings. Sangria. Sunset. Friends. Home.
