  1. Winters in New England seemed merciless - my first winter as an undergraduate I surprised myself by crying on the walk to class across campus because I never experienced such cold and wind lashing. (And I grew up in the East Coast!) But.. come the summer. Glorious. These photos really take me back - thank you!

  2. I think these are among the best photos ever. Love all the beach roses. I was planning to go to Switzerland this fall but I'm thinking of changing my travel plans and returning to the New England coast.

    1. I love and live in New England, but I'd still choose Switzerland for a visit and to live if that were remotely possible. Enjoy...whatever you choose!

    2. Yes, Switzerland by all means. New England next year! PA

  4. As a civilized counterpoint to our troubled world, "Out and About" is always calming, soothing, reassuring ... and reaffirming WRM (What Really Matters.... at least to those who are devotees of SWNE.)

    Fave pic: charming chipmunk.

    Always appreciated: sexy farmer.

  5. I recognize Falkner's Island and I think some pics taken at Buffalo Bay or somewhere like it in Madison. Nostalgia!!

  6. Love, love, love the Out and Abouts. Serenity. My happiness. Just want to crawl into these pix. One of the houses looks just like a former family house in Westport, Conn. Best, Anne.

  7. Your Out and Abouts are always such a soul-soothing escape from the contentious goings-on in the world!!!

  8. Agree with all of the above. Great and evocative shots. It's a small miracle that these pictures have the capacity to soothe us even though as rational adults we must recognize that the people inside and around them are being tossed and turned in the same day-to-day world that we are. The power of art that depicts the natural world, wrote philosopher Roger Scruton, is that it "contains a reassurance that this world is a right and fitting place to be -- a home in which our human powers and prospects find confirmation."

  9. These are some of your best ones yet. The Adirondack chair chipmunk is particularly adorable.

  11. I, too, enjoy these out and about posts immensely. They are a reminder of all the beauty around us.

  12. Somebody help the people at that house in the first photo! Those signal flags mean:

    -"I am maneuvering with difficulty."

    -"I require medical assistance."

    -"All vessels return to port."
