Ed Emberley a fan letter before it's too late! (Yup, he lives in Ipswich!)
Comet's Nine Lives looks like something I need to find at the library. Did you know she has 37 MILLION books in print? Or that her husband is in the Boston Symphony? Interesting folks live around her.
Time and Tide is a photography gallery with a charming owner and FABULOUS photographs. Made me think I need to take a class or something. Makes my Flickr gallery look very amateurish.
Green Elephant was a fun toy store. Not your average % of plastic "junk". They carry Usborne books, Legos, other things to build with and lovely plush animals. It didn't hurt that Chris liked my Two-Row scarf! Maybe they'll get a knitting kit and he can make one for himself.
More plantings by business owners. I never thought I'd see Mums, begonias and pumpkins all together.
Crane Estate and Castle Hill. I imagine that when it is hot and sunny, the place is packed. I sort of liked the forlorn fogginess we found.
We arrived very late in the day and paid a reduced rate which allowed us to get out of the car and walk on the grounds. Apparently this is intended to be an English style manor. It was impressive, but not particularly attractive in my opinion.
