    Tybee: I've never heard of it. I will add it to my list! Newburyport isn't far from us, maybe a 30 - 45 minute drive, so we typically go there a few times a year.
    Here are some pictures. Not the highest quality since taken with my phone, but right-side-up!

    Those rhodo bushes are huge! I think that I have seen just one lady's slipper and it was many years ago so appreciate seeing these.

    Beautiful photos! And your hair has gotten longer versus your profile picture - I like it!

    Wonderful photos! You will love the book, Rosa--it is based on an incident in his early years, where the sociologist Warner came to town and wrote Yankee City--in the novel, the sociologist writes Yankee Persepolis. All of that really happened, and the Yankee City books were a sociological study of Newburyport. The novel looks back on his experience of growing up in Newburyport, from the vantage point of someone who had gone away to war in WWII. It's also a great love story.

    This is thrilling!:

    main idea: millennials are now collecting grandma’s dinnerware, but are mixing and matching patterns.

    I.Am.STOKED about this for many reasons! Fewer piles of plates going to the landfill. Beauty and artistry brought to our tables after sad decades of stark white China ware. Not a color in sight there was. Pattern, color, texture can now joint our homes again. Maybe some restaurants will even pick up this trend.

    Great pix! The trees, particularly.

    I love the idea of mixing and matching dinnerware, but using new, colorful stoneware rather than delicate china. So I'm no help...

    I like the idea of mixing dinnerware also, but especially like mixing the silverware. When I find a fork, spoon or knife with nice detailing, into the drawer it goes.
