the 53 project : week 9

This week was one of extremes -- the weather turned balmy for one day, hitting the low 50s, and then shot back down to the 20s with wind so cold it felt like the arctic.  I was crazy busy with work, and then got to relax and enjoy time with my sister Dorothy, who is visiting from California.  Here are a few moments.

A great sunset on the way to airport.


Transparent Lucy and Nick at the Providence airport.


Dorothy and Willow, sharing a little morning love.

And you thought you weren't going to see any more seagull shots.... 

Dorothy on Scargo Tower, with a view of Cape Cod Bay beyond.
The graffiti says "Muffin & Cuppycake 4 Life" 

The neighbors stay in the holiday spirit year-round.

Hockey on Little Sandy Pond.

Dorothy and Mom -- and yes, it's 20 degrees with 3 feet of snow and Mom is barefoot.

Gratuitous rabbit ears shot.

LOVED spending time with my sister.  Get home safe, Dorothy!

  13. Lovely photos. Hope she had an uneventful trip back to my state. :) I came to Boston a couple of weeks ago, was a bit worried about being stranded in an airport for awhile.
