Well I'm glad those beautiful lions found a new gracious home to guard!

It took me a little back & forth, but I finally recognized a couple of the original buildings with the changes made.  In the PC picture, I noticed the birdbaths - or maybe they were sundials - out front.  I have wanted a sundial for our garden for a long time, but I just can't seem to find one I like.  Some day!

Recycling the old watering trough to be used as a planter in front of the library was a delightful idea.  How nice of the folks who donated it.  Love the story about the rum-renovated church.  Smart-thinking pastor!

It was indeed a great idea. Thanks +La Nightingail ! :)

Several of the men appear to be holding swords.  I have a professional photograph of my great grandfather in his Union Navy uniform holding his sword which I now have in my possession.  When I hold it, I wonder if he ever had to actually use it?  He served aboard several different ships during the Civil War and kept a journal of sorts, but never mentioned having to participate in hand-to-hand combat.

That's one big bunch of confusion.  Even the dog looks confused!  Fun post.

I, too, had never seen a full-length silhouette before.  It's quite lovely.
This week's Sepia Saturday theme is silhouettes. The silhouette to the right, from an album compiled by her daughter, my grandmother, is of my great grandmother Kathleen Mary Cudmore née Cavenagh-Mainwaring (1874-1951). Th...

Love the poem on the postcard.  How sadly true!

I hope, when the place is renovated, they return the shutters to the lower windows. There's just something about shutters that make a place look charming.

In 1992, while chaperoning a high school history trip, I went aboard "Old Ironsides" in Boston.  Everything about it was interesting, but what really caught my attention was how small the officers' quarters were - even for the captain.  Most looked to be about 6' x 4' at best.  Quite the squash!

One would think the captain would have palatial accommodations! Thanks +La Nightingail :)

I really had to look hard to find that horse!  But found it, I did.  Good challenge.  You didn't mention the snowman's hand/seat being cold.  It'd be neat if they could refrigerate it.

Ah yes - I remember the swan boats from 1992 when I accompanied 36 teenagers on a history trip as one of 8 chaperones.  We began in Washington D.C. & ended in Boston and I saw the boats as I walked around the Boston Public Gardens.  It wasn't summer, but the boats were running - perhaps because it was Easter week & the weather was lovely?  I wanted a chance to ride on one, but time wouldn't allow it.  Shucks.

I do believe they try to have them up and running for Easter. There is a whole pageant thing where they bring the (real) swans back to the lagoon from their winter residence. What a trip that must have been for those teenagers and you as well. Come on back for a ride on the boats! :) Thanks +La Nightingail

My husband used to go clam digging during low tide in Crescent City, CA when we lived up north, but he did all the shucking.  He likes clams fried in butter.  I only like 'em in chowder - Boston, to be exact.
