A sure sign of summer is first pilgrimage to Wellfleet Massachusetts to visit one of our favorite places – The Beachcomber. The Comaah, as locally referred to, sits on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in the beautiful National Seashore. Most of the time it is standing room only and is frequented by an eclectic mix of young and old, beachgoers, locals and visitors. We were able to luck into 2 bar seats for some adult beverages and shrimp and Wellfleet oysters from the Raw Bar. So much fun.

This was an interesting view of Dinghies tied up to the quay at low tide in Marion Harbor. Overhead there was series of overhead ropes and pulleys with laundry detergent bottles as weights. Also the contrast of all of the rickety wood ladders for access to the boats against the stone of the sea wall. Faber-Castell Pitt pens in an Alpha Series Stillman and Birn 9″ x 12″ sketchbook.
IN New Jersey once again today for a project meeting and I had a little extra time to drive over to the Jersey Shore. This is a Hotel/Resort tower right on the beach in Long Branch, New Jersey. A beautiful stretch of beach adjacent to the Boardwalk. Faber-Castell Pitt pens, Utrecht Watercolors in an Alpha Series Stillman and Birn sketchbook.
A quick ink sketch of the rear of the Pawtucket Congregational Church in Pawtucket, RI. The Italianate/Romanesque style church building was designed by Boston architect John Stevens and constructed in 1867-1868; it is the only known work of Stevens in Rhode Island. The cost of construction was $64,000. The perspective is a little wonky in this sketch with Faber-Castell Pitt pens in a Stillman and Birn Sketchbook.
