On Saturday Marblehead had their annual Christmas walk. Joe and I walked down to the harbour to watch the re-enactment of Marblehead’s Glover regiment rowing George Washington across the Potomac. Well, in this case it was the harbour but it was the Potomac that they rowed him up during the revolution.
I picked up this little sign for my mum’s birthday. She has it hanging in her living room. She’s not nor has she ever been a winter person.
We had some snow on Wednesday morning. The drive to work was a little slow but it gave me time to see the beauty of a winter wonderland.
Joe and I went out to eat on Wednesday night. We walked around the corner to The Barnacle restaurant. The street we walk on is Circle street. The homes on it were built in the early 1700’s and it is so narrow that one car can just fit on it. When it comes out onto the Main Street…which is only a little bigger…this is what we saw. The Barnacle is decorated for Christmas with a tree inside the window, lights on the deck railings and wreaths on the windows. Chandler Hovey light house is lit up with red and green lights across the harbour on Marblehead neck, and the moon is full and reflecting off of the Atlantic Ocean. It was just beautiful. We paused at the little beach and marveled at how awesome it was. Then, we went into the Barnacle and had dinner at the windows.
On the town landing there is a buoy decorating contest. People painted buoys as a fundraiser and then they were displayed on a lobster trap Christmas tree for the town to see. I saw a lot of people taking pictures of one another in front of it during the Christmas walk.
