Walk a Mile in My Other Shoes

I'm taking another two mile walk, and more photos, as I test out a different pair of shoes.

 They are pretty also.
The other pair did not work --  sore feet and blisters.
Will these work for my trip?
They are the most comfortable "pretty" shoes I have ever tried on.
We'll see at the end of the walk.

 I had company.

And blue skies and sun!

 It's fun to walk with my husband.
He notices different things, like this pretty blue jay feather.

 Ah the Honeysuckle -- lovely scent, sadly invasive!

 On my beach walk I turned left at the end of our lane.
For this walk we turned right towards coffee and donuts.

 A peaceful & pretty cemetery.

 Our family has kind of adopted Azubah.
We say hello to her whenever we pass this way.

Such a pretty headstone.

 Weeping Willows were very traditional on New England headstones of the 19th century.

A different rendition of the weeping willow.
At first glance it looked like angel wings.
(I probably need new glasses)

What would a New England country road be without a white picket fence . . . 

. . . or a pretty chuch and steeple?

My shoes and I arrived at our destination.
My husband did too, and bought the coffee, oj and donuts!
The General Store

Summer mornings, these benches will be full of locals solving the world's political problems before going to work.  Later they will be full of summer visitors eating donuts or ice cream and thinking this must be heaven!

They sell the most wonderful Beach Plum Jam,
and will make up a care package for your kids when they go away to college and are feeling a bit homesick!
The link may or may not be working, but I've put it in just in case.


 You're looking down at the first floor . . .

 Through this cool vent in the floor/ceiling!

Back to our walk

This gate really doesn't go anywhere, but I love how formal it looks.

And back to my garden.
6 hours later, I am still wearing my Naot sandals.
They are going with me on the trip!

Now if only I could stop obsessing about the clothes I plan to take.
