Squeezing the last drop out of summer

This past weekend Mother Nature granted us with one last weekend of summer. So we decided to squeeze every last drop out of summer by going to the beach. We packed the car, put our dog Penny in the back seat and off we went on our way to Gloucester for a glorious send off to summer.

Salt Flats | Gloucester, MA

Apparently everyone in New England thought Gloucester was the place to be! We arrived at Wingaersheek Beach and found an overflowing parking lot. The street was lined on both sides with parked cars long before we even got to the parking lot. So we did a U-turn in the parking lot and drove to the salt flat not far from the beach. Penny was pretty happy to be able to get in the water.

We left the Salt Flats to go to Good Harbor Beach. It felt like Groundhog Day, same story with the ridiculous amount of cars. Hoping that the third time is a charm we made our way to Halibut Point. And we were disappointed for a third time.

Feeling defeated, we made our way to Woodman’s of Essex. The line to get food was ridiculously long, but we wanted to close out the summer at Woodman’s. So we waited and once again, Woodman’s did not disappoint.

We decided to give Wingaersheek Beach one more try, figuring that most of the people will have left to get dinner. We go there, parked right up at the front and took Penny down to the beach.

The beach was beautiful at sunset. Penny was as happy as can be playing in the water. So after a day of being disappointed, we ended it with a delicious meal and a glorious sunset on the beach.

And so we say goodbye to summer and begin the fall show season. First up Paradise City Art Festival in Northampton, MA the weekend of October 11-13 followed by the Kentuck Festival of the Arts in Northport, AL on October 18-19.

We hope to see you at a show soon. And if you can’t make it to a show, you can always see the latest and greatest in our online shop.

As we say goodbye to Summer…

Seems like fall has come early this year…the leaves are already starting to turn. We are sad to say goodbye to summer, but look forward to a beautiful fall. The cooler weather opens the fall show season for us, starting with the Paradise City show in Northampton, MA the weekend of October 11-13.

And as soon as we are done with that show we make our way to Northport, Alabama for the Kentuck Festival of the Arts on October 18-19. Treat yourself to extra amenities as a Patron of the 2014 Kentuck Festival of the Arts. Details about becoming a patron can be found at www.kentuck.org/festival_patron.html.

I am honored that the folks at Kentuck chose to use one of my JunkHeads in the patron pamphlet.

And now it’s back to the studio to continue to make things to bring to these shows. We look forward to seeing you at Paradise or Kentuck.
