Provincetown May 2012

"You can't go too far on the straight and narrow in life if you have an affinity for Provincetown."
insightful quote by ms. kj


This post is about Provincetown. 

But first of all: Lori, have a wonderful time in Africa. I know generosity is going to shower you. It will rain on you.  :^) You are however obliged to share the most amazing photos. Can't wait ♥


These first three shots are the yard in Provincetown. JB and I take no credit: we live in a house divided into three condos. We are in the middle and Mark in the unit behind us is a gardener. All season there will be blooms and colors. Some may be overgrown, but that is a small price for all this beauty.



There are more cars and people in town.


The shops are opening.



Houses and windows have activity.


And it is Springtime. 



This is the view right in front of me now as I type on the couch.


It looks fancier than it really is. 


And this is how things are looking on a short walk in Provincetown.
Next weekend all the shops and restaurants will open.
People will come.
And no matter what else
The sun will rise again and again.

love :^)

    1. Barbara, at first it took some practice to walk up and down it :-). Sometimes I laugh secretly watching guests navigate it for the first times

      Hee hee

  5. It's a regular Garden Of Eden!
    And you don't even have to tend it, how perfect!
    Love the doggie in the the window, and the kitty
    strutting the bricks.
    It all looks so comfy,cozy,,,,and well, just perfectly magical too.

    Cross your heart that neither of you wear flip-flops on that beautiful staircase?

    1. I'm often barefoot come summer, babs , but flip flops are better than socks and I've slipped once or twice on that staircase :-)

      I am convinced that ptown is indeed magical. Many say it's because of the way the light bounces off the water. And, it may be a bit dysfunctional but it's a happy place

    1. I took five shots Lydia: none good enough and then that cat just stood and turned around and walked away. Turned out to be the best shot among them :-)

  9. Ah, I'm thinking I could use a big fat dose of P-Town...for a few hours or days.
    What a lovely pathway to retreat into, for creativity to flow....quiet, at least for the time being.
    A haven for the creative spirit to recharge.

    XXOO~~

  24. Wow - I am a lovely shade of green right now (me and Kermit). I'm so happy you have this retreat.
    I think living near water sounds perfect. I do live near woods, and that's pretty swell, too.

  25. Pam, you would live ptown. I know you would.

    I was just thinking yesterday that 'swell' is a swell word and not used so much anymore. So here you are using it--yay!
