Summer Dreams – Visiting The Isles of Shoals

Exploring the Craggy and Historic Sentinels of the New Hampshire Coast

A Summer Visit to New England's Isles of Shoals
A Summer Visit to New England's Isles of Shoals

Every once in a while, if the conditions are just right, we’ll get a summer’s day here in Florida that reminds me of my beloved New Hampshire childhood. Today is just such a day, with unseasonably low humidity, azure blue skies, the chirping of songbirds and a gentle breeze that transports me back to a lazy summer day in New England. It was on just such a day that Bryn and I visited the Isles of Shoals for the first time back in July of 2017.

Here Comes Summer – Sail Portsmouth!

A Walk Down Summer’s Memory Lane – Sail Portsmouth 2019

With Memorial Day marking the official unofficial start to summer here in The States, we thought it would be a perfect time to share some of our favorite memories from summers-gone-by as we look ahead to all this summer may have in store. Today, we’ll be looking back at last year’s Sail Portsmouth tall ships festival as we look forward to this summer’s event, featuring the CGC Eagle – a ship I haven’t seen in New Hampshire since I was a young child.

Longing for Cooler Climes

A Reminder of Winter on This Hot Florida Day

We’ve hit a seasonal milestone here in Florida – one that is unique to photographers and glass-wearers that inevitably signals the coming of summer in Florida. This week, while on a shoot, I ventured from inside an air-conditioned Winn-Dixie to the outside, and instantly, my lens fogged up – a sign of the humidity and accompanying heat that comes with a Florida summer. Full disclosure, I do not care for Florida summers – and so for my fellow sufferers, here’s a sampling from our winter collection – a chilly reminder that this too shall pass…

Summer Wanderings Part 4: Vermont

A Heaping Slice of Americana in Southern Vermont

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

Welcome to Part 4 of our summer series – featuring our last New England state of the summer, Vermont!  One of our favorite things about these summer trips is the chance to see family and friends while on the road.  Every other year, my dad’s side of the family gets together for a good ol’ fashioned reunion and this time, we found ourselves in the little valley town of Dover, Vermont.  As providence would have it, the weekend of our retreat was also the date of the Vermont Blueberry Festival in the small towns of Deerfield Valley – including… you guessed it, Dover.  Complete with all the fixin’s you would expect from a small town festival, there was a parade (above), craft show, blueberry pancake breakfast, and a myriad of other festivities that absolutely screamed Americana!

The parade was truly a treat.  I admittedly went to the parade with little desire, but the combination of antique cars and an overwhelming sense of nostalgia, quickly warmed me up.  One thing that really took me back was the drum and fife corps – there were several from around New England, and I could have almost believed I was eight again, sitting along Post Road as I watched the bands go by during our town’s annual Summerfest.  All in all, our time in New England was a wonderful opportunity to take a deep breath, slow down, and enjoy the many gifts God has given us – oh, and to take a few thousand pictures…

Summer Wanderings Part 3: Massachusetts

Exploring Massachusetts’ Cape Cod National Seashore

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

After a quick break to show you some of our automotive work from last weekend’s Cars and Coffee, I’m digging back into our summer archives for the next installment our series – this time featuring the wind-swept shores of Massachusetts’ Cape Cod National Seashore.  Despite having grown up only 20 miles from the Massachusetts border and, traffic permitting (which it often doesn’t) about an hour and a half from Cape Cod – our first trip to the Massachusetts’ geographic forearm was only a few winters ago, when family had briefly lived there.  However, it was a quick visit, and we didn’t get to see much of the Cape or any of its famous seashore.  But thankfully, that all changed this summer, as we took an overnight trip to explore the quaint villages and soaring dunes that line the easternmost bits of Massachusetts.

If you’ve followed our blog for any time, you probably know how much we enjoy lighthouses, and with several lighthouses in and around the seashore, we made sure to stop at several.  If you’ve ever had a bag of Cape Cod chips, chances are the top photo looks a bit familiar.  The brightly-colored Nauset Light was the model for the bag – and a picturesque model at that!  Best of all, the lighthouse is regularly open for tours thanks to the organization that cares for the historic structure.  While on the Cape, we also visited Chatham Light, the decommissioned Three Sisters Light (which once stood where Nauset Light now resides), and finally Highland Light.

But what if lighthouses aren’t your thing?  Well, the Cape still has plenty to offer, from great restaurants and shops, sandy beaches, wild seals and rare birds, and historic sites like the first Marconi wireless station and the Pilgrim’s Monument, noting the site of the Pilgrim’s first landing in the New World.
