Porch or No Porch

This is what makes America such a great country. If you like the purity of architectural solids, you can opt to keep the face of your house unencumbered. Or if you are more into not being feasted on by biting pests, AND you enjoy a bit of whimsy on your boxy abode, then you are free to add a porch and watch the world pass by in the charming town of Bristol, Rhode Island.

Both are good.

Dreaming of Purgatory

My daughter, being the sailor that she is, thought it would be nice to see the tall ships in Newport. However, the captains decided to leave early, so we began a chase to see their rapidly receding masts.
We found a nice perch at Purgatory Chasm, a crack in the earth, a cleft in the cliff along Sachuet Bay, 10 feet wide, 50 feet deep and 120 feet long.

Bye, bye boats!

Hats, Bags & Babes

A little shed that aspires to greater retail grandeur, this Block Island store worked it's magic on a mother-daughter team that I happen to know.
