The Land of Lobstah and Beeah

"Heath Cottage"
14" x 11"
Rockport, MA

"Artist at Work"
by Joan Kendall
Rockport, MA

As our 91-year old friend Doris from Rockport said, "There are no "R's" in Massachusetts," at least not within a hundred miles of Boston. My art friend, Joan Kendall from Connecticut, and I enjoyed our annual trip together, this time to the North Shore in the little town of Rockport. Here you see the cottage where we stayed and a painting Joan did of me when I was engrossed in painting a harbor scene sitting on rocks high above the town.

I will write more when I get some time.

I am sitting in a University classroom writing to you as my best friend is a Professor and is teaching a class here at Univ of S. Fl. campus in Sarasota, drove an hour with her and we'll make a day of it.. talk to you soon I hope.
