(sort of) Silent Sunday

After five weeks of traveling up and down the East Coast, down South, out West, and into the Midwest, the asia Vu Summer 2012 Whistlestop Tour is drawing to an end. I Have blog fodder galore of this first Home Leave, and more than a few surprising realizations, but mostly I'm just deeply thankful for a lovely visit. Here are just a few images that will stay with me long after I return:

Is that first one the Cape? Love the blue hydrangeas. I will always associate them with East Coast America now.

Glad the trip has gone well!

@Circles: thanks so much! It was a wonderful, long, busy vacation, but I'm back and ready to put my nose to the grindstone!

MsCaroline said...

@Joy: Thank you, and I felt the same way! I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised that it took us 3 hours to have lunch (and we could have gone much longer, I'm sure!). Big hugs to Holly for getting us together!

MsCaroline said...

@Rainbow: They are all beautiful places, but I might think twice before including Cape Cod, Boston, Washington DC, and the beaches of North Carolina all in one vacation!

MsCaroline said...

@Emma - Thanks - it was a complete fluke; the 3 of us had gone for an early (jetlag-induced) morning walk on the beach and I took the photo with my phone. I was as surprised as everyone else that it turned out so beautifully!

MsCaroline said...

@Nappy: Yes indeed, you got it!We were visiting my cousins in Falmouth. I had forgotten how amazingly vivid those hydrangeas could be. I'm kicking myself for not taking more photos of them. They were so ubiquitous I kept telling myself I could take photos anytime. Naturally, when it came time to leave, I had hardly taken any...sigh.
