Westport Today

I had my camera with me while doing errands today. 
Here are some of the nice spots I drove by in my 'hood.

We are so lucky to have the playhouse in town. 

This church is on a narrow little lane in Westport. I love the bell in the steeple.

I pass this dilapidated old garage almost every day. It's awesome.

The water was sparkling so bright today on the river, you had to squint while looking at it.

My kids' elementary school. Beautiful building, wonderful memories.

I love driving by this house on my way to Saugatuck. It's on the main road but I love the color, the wrap around porch and it looks so great when they decorate it with American Flags for 4th of July.

Compo never gets old.

Look Up Alice!

I spent the day in Long Island City yesterday but most of the pictures of Alice were of her back like this...

or looking down like this...

I did get one shot I liked (the profile will have to do)

Here's the last one. Alice is still staring down but at least my son is looking ahead.

Sweet 16

I took photos at a Sweet 16 recently. You never know what's going to happen at a Sweet 16 because it's filled with teenagers who are not quite adults but not children either. 
The dresses are always too short, the boys all look like they are trying to be James Dean 
and the music is way to loud for an old lady like me. 

 Beautiful decor in a trendy spot.

There was a lot of dancing...

A little of this...

Some cool shoes...

a bit of drama...

and my favorite pic, the birthday girl still young enough to hold hands with her bff.

and how pretty was the cake!

Sochi Frame By Frame

I didn't watch any of the Olympics but I just found these interesting pics from the New York Times. They are frame by frame photos and I found them pretty cool.

More Snow

No, that's not cotton in the pic above, that's more snow!

Compo in the snow

and one cute cell phone pic of my niece Soleil and her snowman :)

It's Still So Cold

I tried to take some pics (without getting out of my car) to show how cold it is in Westport
because summer is a long four months and twenty six days away!

I hate birds but I thought this guy looked a little chilly too flying around in 17 degrees.

Fly Away

I am afraid to fly but if I did I would take the advice of The New York Times
 and visit every place on their list. The pictures are amazing!

Too Cold To Take Pictures

Since I don't like to get out and walk around when the temperatures drop under 65 degrees, temps in the single digits usually get me out of my house. But I had to pick up my kids today and this is what The Saugatuck River looked like around midday (obviously pics were taken from my car!)

This guy didn't seem to mind the weather. Although a pair of slippers would have been nice.

Google Search 2013

Google made a great video of what the world searched for in 2013. A great wrap up with 
amazing pics and video. Take a look and Happy New Year!

See You In The New Year!

I'm not sure if I'll have access to my computer for the next week, so here is an old blog post of my favorite Christmas tree in Westport. Enjoy the holidays, be safe and may 
2014 be better than the last for all of us.

My Favorite Xmas Tree In Westport

I've been driving by this tree every year since I moved to Westport ten years ago. I wish I had started taking pictures of it then because it started out a bit of a Charlie Brown tree. It was small, sitting out there all alone on the lawn, with lights that seemed to big for its branches. Now it's growing like a weed and it seems so is everything else around me. That's a good thing, right?   :)   :(
Merry Merry!

Snow And Ice

Snow yesterday, ice last night, sunshine today.

On the main road near my house. Not usually the most beautiful spot but today...

Then when I got a closer look, I saw why everything was glistening... ice!

 Old Hill Road, freshly plowed.

Foggy Day

A foggy day in Westport.

This is what my husband does on foggy days.... (and my niece baby Alice decided to join him)
