Coastal getaway-#6

Edward Hopper is a favorite painter of mine. Many of his paintings involve people not interacting with one another but rather with their surroundings. I thought of his work when I looked out, across the street from our vacation rental, to an area of a beachside hotel, and saw this couple and their dog:


Again, my iPhone would not have picked up the couple very well from that distance so I am using Terry’s photo.

Another place that could have been a painting was this vine-covered cottage we saw on a walk:


And again, this is Terry’s photo as we were standing across the street, too far away for my iPhone to do it justice.

Our anniversary fell on one of our days at the beach. The lovely little shop, Happy Go Smile, that I had earlier discovered, also had cupcakes. I picked up three one morning for our afternoon snack and we all shared these strawberry shortcake cupcakes in celebration of 39 years:


Since we were gone Sunday, when Jennifer would usually be teaching Sunday School, she brought along the lesson and taught the small grandchildren about loving one another:

Sunday school

They each made a love bug:love bugs

We had a great time on our coastal getaway, but just as the sun sets, we too had to return to our regular life:
