"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

More Rhode Island Photos

These photos bring back memories of my magical week with Lo in Rhode Island.

If you look closely, you can see me trying to photograph a Seagull!  (Mr. Gull is so white, he fades into the railing he stands on..)

Yes, Lo and I risked *life and limb* when we hiked the *Cliff Walk*!  A-ha-ha!
What a magnificent view!

Blithewold.  An enchanting, enormous estate. 
From this viewpoint, you wouldn't know that the ocean is close by.  (Lo had photographed this very scene long before I visited, but I was so struck with this view, I had to shoot it for myself....my *BS* has a real artist's eye....)

The Koi Pond  

Part of the Veggie Garden.....soft, Autumnal colours as we strolled through..

Ah, now you can see the Sea waiting to greet us.  I was instantly reminded of *Manderlay*, the estate of Daphne Du Maurier's classic suspenseful novel "Rebecca"... this could be Cornwall....

And finally, you reach the water.  Listening to the sound of the gentle waves lap onto the shell-covered shore, is there anything more soothing?
I hope you enjoyed coming along with Lo and myself as we explored her gorgeous State!
More to come....

  2. omg.....I would LOVE to be able to visit there! The photos are amazing Robin and the one that cracks me up (of course!) is the sign with the guy falling off the cliff! I am so immature.... ;-D
    The sea is beautiful, and so different than I remember the sea out in San Fran. Different from coast to coast.
