Cemetery Tow Zone

So, this sight in the middle of the Seaside/Locust Grove cemetery brought a few questions to mind. With tongue firmly in cheek: Shouldn’t it be “resident” only parking? Isn’t everyone already “ parked”? Who’s issuing tickets, Casper the Ghost? Just how do these people pay their tickets?

Outdoor Seating at Tonno

I had such a nice time sitting at a sidewalk table at Tonno yesterday. We were lucky to score a comfy sofa and chairs at a fire pit table…and also lucky that the rain held off while we were there. We shared a couple of bar bites…the meatballs and calamari….and also a shrimp flatbread pizza along with one yummy cocktail each. I am so appreciative of the hard work that has gone into creating the beautiful outdoor dining spaces in our wonderful city. I can’t wait to see what Main Street looks like as summer is in full swing. You can learn more about Tonno here

Barns Along the Byway (Almost)

This BEAUTIFUL barn is not along the Essex Coastal Scenic Byway, which is my normal rule for these “Barns Along the Byway” but I just had to share this gem. It’s fairly close to the Byway on Water Street in Ipswich. It appears to be part of the Glazier-Sweet house property though I am not finding too much about this barn yet. There just has to be a story here! Simply gorgeous.
