My dear friend JoLisa was in town with her hubby and son for a wedding, so we were able to get together one Sunday for a trip up to Scituate. That town's name is pronounced 'Situate'. She & I had never met in person before, having been Facebook friends since April, 2009, probably because of playing Hatchlings. Over time we've gotten to be really close from chatting all the time. It was to the point where I forgot that I never met her in real life before!
I picked her up at her hotel in Plymouth and we headed up. Here's a map to show where it is on the coast. All I can say is, thank god she had a smart phone that was able to give me audible turn by turn directions because I never would have found it!!!
The first place we went was to the lighthouse.
We walked out on this breakwater all the way to the end.
Busy day out on the Bay! It was sooooo nice out.
Cool ship leaving the harbour.
Then in full sail!
Down at the end of the jetty.
I loved the glass bits embedded in the sidewalk.
What a great bead shop this is!!!!!! I was fairly good....kept it under $35.
We went inside an antique shop and were delighted with the decorated ceiling tiles.
The proprietor said she passed out the tiles to local kids to decorate and return. What an awesome idea!!!!
I like this old sign. Pilgrim Highway is Rte. 3.
On the way back, I asked if she had a chance to see the Monument to the Forefathers, since she was in Plymouth almost every day. She was surprised to hear about it because no one had told them it was there. I chuckled because that seemed to be the case, despite it being in this location since the late 1800s. So I took her to see it.
By the way, if you ever find yourself in Scituate, you must stop by for a slice or two at Harbor House of Pizza. It was absolutely mouth watering delicious. It's probably a good thing it's so far away or I'd be eating there every night!!!!! A big THANK YOU to JoLisa for treating me to lunch there and for hanging out with me!
