Earlier this month, BF and I went to visit friends in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. It was an idyllic getaway and we had a wonderful time relaxing and hanging out with friends. Every day we took walks and enjoyed the area.
We strolled past the Ocean House and enjoyed the lovely refurbished Victorian Inn's grand vista as a pivotal part of Watch Hill's attraction. This picture was taken early in the day before the morning haze had burned off to a bright blue sky.
A stroll through the hotel's gardens revealed a very busy apiary.
The beehives were busy with activity.
Not wanting to get too close, I can say I was truly grateful for the zoom feature on my camera. I really find bees fascinating.
Later in the morning, with the morning mist completely cleared, we enjoyed the summer heat and sunshine.
Having exposed myself to a little too much sun the day before, I set up for knitting lessons on the screened in porch.
My friend Julie was a natural. In no time at all, she learned the basic knit stitch and was already catching mistakes and fixing them intuitively. I can't wait to help her get her first finished item knit up. Won't that be great?
See, even on vacation, we're busy as a bee.
