A Perfect Storm!

My title explains what happened at the end of last week.  First, the weather prediction was beautiful sunny days as far as they could see. Second, I received an email from Sunset Magazine(the Western equivalent of Southern Living) saying that they had picked a town on the coast that was this years idea town and if you stayed 2 days, you got a third one free.  So the DH and I decided that this was something we could not resist.  Oh , I forgot to say that the news had done  a very interesting story about cranberry harvesting in that area. Off we were to the beach!  My first post will be about this delightful little place called Seabrook.  Tomorrow I will show you the cranberries and beach photos and next will be the amazing Quinault Rainforest. If you are only interested in my stitching, you might want to skip my next few posts.  (But I did quite a bit of stitching, that's for another day.)

 Most of the homes are second homes. The nearest large grocery store is over a half hour away.  I love the New England look of the village.

 This was our little rental.

 Not all the houses are small!!!!

 One of my favorites!

View from the Main Street!

 Beach access.

 Patio of the Idea House.There were week-end tours of this house.

 This is a small garden that I fell in love with!

Lots of garden art!

 Many cottages had names.

When I win the lottery, I'm going to buy a house over here!!!!!! Thanks for joining me today!
