Well, not really … but Apple Photo Memories recently offered up a selection of close-to-beach photos, and I then took the idea to it’s extreme.
The photos here go back as far as a family holiday to Brixham, Devon in England in the 1970s, past our honeymoon in the Canary Islands, and to more recent locations including Gloucester and Rockport where we used to live …
Near to where we lived in Massachusetts is Dogtown; a trail there takes us past boulders carved with inspiring messages, created nearly 100 years ago. We walked there a few years ago and I posted pictures at the time.
Now the modern technology of Apple Photos Memories is creating nice auto videos from my photos, and today it created this one:
A lovely view of Rockport Harbor (click it for much bigger view):

After our visit to Halibut Point State Park, we drove into Gloucester to take a walk around the shops, harbor, etc. Here’s a view of Gloucester Harbor, and close-ups of the famous Cape Pond Ice and the Paint Manufactory:
We then walked round to Stacy Boulevard with it’s beautiful display of American Flags, and of course the other Gloucester icon, the Man At Wheel statue:
A trip to Halibut Point State Park in Rockport this morning, to join a nature walk. Of course we saw the Atlantic Ocean and the quarry but we also saw, and tried to learn the names, of many birds!
Once the sun appeared today, the weather got quite pleasant, and we headed over to Rockport for a walk – we expected the town to be “closed for the winter” but it turns out that today is their Harvest Festival and there were stalls and people everywhere! Still nice views of the little town:
We’re back in Massachusetts this weekend, for PG Trionic‘s 20th anniversary celebration. It’s quite amazing that our company has succeeded for this long; we had a really difficult beginning – but Christian’s ever present confidence is surely a big reason why we’re all still working here.
We’re staying in an “AirBnB” home, about 1.5 miles from where we used to live and with a nice water view:

I took a walk this morning (about 50f) along that 1.5 miles, past our old home and around Goose Cove reservoir; here’s the track of my walk, and some pictures of my walk around Goose Cove reservoir:
