East Wareham

After being a prisoner in my home all winter long, wondering if the second ice age was indeed upon us, 65 degree days feel pretty damn good.  I've been getting out and walking a whole bunch because I know that the humidity is gonna land on us like a sumo wrestler in due time.  One early Sunday I decided to walk over the little bridge to East Wareham.  

Those are the railroad tracks.

 This channel of water that flows into Buttermilk Bay is called Cohasset Narrows.


This building used to be a junk/antique shop but now it's condemned.





Then I decided to walk around The Clam Shack Antiques.  So much to look at there!



Curiosity got the best of me and I decided to open the door to see what was inside.

Boy was I startled to see this guy inside!  That wire attached to his hand made it move as the door opened too!  "Can I get a little privacy?!?!?!"  

I have always wanted to see this on a barn but unfortunately there were no Mail Pouch barns on either the drive west in 1989 or east in 2011.  So this sign will have to do for now!

On the way home.

This silly little doggy barks his or her head off at me along it's fence whenever I take my walks.  It's hilarious. So I took a picture of the little toughy.

  1. Oh yeah, he looks ferocious! haha

    These pictures look like they were take from a Hollywood set or something. Very cool. Hubby and I were just talking about the humidity. So far, we've been lucky. But it won't be long before it's uncomfortable to stand outside, even in the shade. Thank goodness for pony tails! Because my hair is gonna frizz!

    1. I know right, with the hair? Mine gets all big too. I live in ponytails and braids all summer long.

  2. Lovely pix again. You got me with the Eastwind Lobster. My favourite food. Loved the guy in the outhouse. Serves you right for opening it LOL. Pretty area where you live.

    1. Thanks! yes it's very picturesque here. Lobstah is very expensive here but it's a staple food for most people. I'm allergic to shellfish so I can't eat it. Even if Russell cooks some for himself, over and above the horrible smell, I have allergy issues from it.

  3. It's very expensive everywhere. As a youngster in the UK it wasn't so bad until one year the coast froze up and the lobsters went deep. It was years before they returned by which time they had become very expensive.

    1. Russell hauls them from the Lobster Trap in Pocasset sometimes to the Boston airport, but usually to upstate NY. If he's coming right back, and he asks, they will give him 3-4 to take home with him. They are always appreciated when we give them away. There was one night though...I got up to get a bottle of water and the critters had worked their way out of the bags and were moving around inside the fridge. I shrieked. Not exactly what I expected to see at 3 AM!!!! That memory still gives me the creeps!

  4. Good for you getting all that fresh air and exercise! (I need to do the same, but I sure don't have the incredible scenery you are so lucky to have).

    Those old buildings are amazing, and the doggy not so tough looking ;)

    1. Well now that I have the mother of all head colds, my daily walks are on hold till I feel like I can take more than 2 steps before my head explodes.

      I do get a kick out of that dog though.

  5. Omg. I thought you guys were entering the 2nd ice age too! Holy hell but you guys got walloped this past winter. I'm so happy to see you out n' about in good weather, and as always, your photos make me want to hop on a plane and come out! I love the coastal areas with such deep nautical history. Thanks for the visual vacation JoJo!

    1. Thank you!!! It's very pretty here....and yes, so much nautical history. In 6th grade, in the 70s, everyone had to take a mandatory safe boating class that was offered by the school. I still remember the ABCs of safe boating: Always Be Careful.

  6. Perhaps that little pup smells your dogs so thinks he's got to put up a brave front? Just guessing? You know how sensitive the dogs are to smell. . . or he's a little bruiser.
    Love the red door shot, JoJo, I always want to paint images like that, but a photo will do. I enjoy your photo shoots, JoJo.

    1. If you want to use my picture to paint from, that would be fine. :) Every time I walk by any house with a dog, they bark...just like mine do when they see someone pass by our house. Of course my German shepherd is A LOT more intimidating than that little bugger!

  7. This post made me think of Pete's Dragon and Passamaquoddy! My oldest child watched it so much that it is forever imprinted in my brain. More great shots!

    1. Indeed. Of course we're just 'babies' compared to Europe, but this area is pretty old by American standards.
