Mount Hope Bay Kayaks

Trying to catch up on some scanning. A beautiful evening for an AIA event at the Bready Sailing Center at Roger Williams University. Fantastic location overlooking Mount Hope Bay and these kayaks were set on the racks waiting to be used.

Bull Riding

A fantastic evening celebrating the High School Graduation of our Nephew and his 2 best friends. There was about 150 family and friends to celebrate the conclusion of one phase of life and the continuation of another onto college. Excellent food, drinks and conversations along with games including a mechanical bull. It was fun to watch all of the kids try their skill on the bull and some of the adults. Very entertaining and everyone had a great time. Pilot Falcon fountain pen with Noodler’s Bulletproof black ink and Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn Beta Sketchbook.

Rye Tavern

Unlike the modern car or bus, stagecoaches and their teams required regular rest stops along their routes of travel. There were two stops  on Old Sandwich Road in Plymouth, Massachusetts and one was what is now the Rye Tavern. The Cornish Tavern was built in 1792 by Josiah Cornish, who maintained the tavern as an inn and popular meeting place for many years. Even after the Old Colony Railroad reached Plymouth in 1845, there was still a need for a resting place of horse-drawn coaches making connections to outlying towns. Taverns in the Plymouth area remained into the 19th century when they were gradually replaced by more modern hotels and restaurants. But in the outlying area of town, along the oldest public road in the country, this traditional 18th century tavern still exists, looking much the same as it did two centuries ago.
