a week in New England



Rockport, Massachusetts. The red fishing shack (called Motif 1) is said to be one of New England's most photographed subjects. The original shack collapsed in the Blizzard of 1978, a snowstorm I remember fondly (for giving me at least one full week out of school). Motif 1 was recreated and repainted later that year.

  • Loved the song and my Spanish is getting better: the only word I didn't know was "El Charco!"

    Hope you had a great time in New England. Must have beautiful this time of year.

  • I found the Blizzard of 78 pictures when I was at my mom's house, Nomadita. My friend Jean and I shovelled, the took pictures of ourselves standing next to the snow cliffs along the driveway. Sigh, I do miss snow days.
