Sunday Drive

I headed out for a long, aimless drive yesterday. It's one of my favorite things to do to decompress from the work week.
I headed for the other side of Mount Hope Bridge.
This guy's license plate is "swtryd."
Sweet ride! 

This was Volpe's Pond at 1:00 pm.

This is it at 5:00 pm!
I love afternoon light.

I stopped at Colt State Park in Bristol.
I love it there! You're surrounded by ocean and nestled by woods.

It was breezy by the bay, but still warm.

Red sails!

I love when the ivy changes with the season. What a great, old building.

I paused for a few more afternoon shots....

And made my way back to Barrington.
It was a picture perfect day!



  1. Your area is so beautiful. Here it is pretty too but no boat and ocean shots. The trees are dropping leaves in a blizzard now. Have a great week.

  2. Wow, these photographs are stunning! It looks like a place that would inspire me toward peace daily, thanks for sharing it! :)

  3. I too love ivy-covered buildings. I've always dreamed of living in one. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Ah, how well I remember crossing that bridge and seeing all those places with you.. one year time and life changes.... One thing that doesn't change is your amazing, artistic it paintings or photos - you create magic!

  6. What a perfect day!
    Think I have a picture of that bridge too ;)
    Beautiful colors and light dear. Hope your battery is charged again.
    My first day off, I will take it easy. We will go to Goes and this afternoon I will nap :)
    Take care!!!!

  7. it was such a gorgeous day and you live in such a beautiful area. lovely pics and I can feel that red sail one calling out to be painted!

  8. Wow, Lo! What a beautiful area. Thanks for taking me along on your ride. :) I'm thinking of playing hookie today and driving over to the Shenandoah Valley before all the leaves blow off the trees. xox

  9. What a gorgeous ride you had. Your choice of photos is perfect. What a beautiful area you live near.
    So good to see you posting again.

  10. love those kind of lazy rides. and such a beautiful place to drive in and through. glad you had a back roads adventure.

  11. Why does that red sail seem so special? It has some symbolism to me, all good

    I too love days and drives like this. Your photos of volpe's pond at 1 and 5 is so cool! Wouldn't that be the most fun: to snap the nuances of time from one spot throughout the days and seasons?

    I am super duper glad you are behind the wheel.

    Love love love

  12. I love ride taking too,,,and what simply wondrous landscapes you have there!
    The Red sails are kind of magical,,,,
