Yesterday Becky and I had a trip to Braintree, Massachusetts mapped out. A few days earlier I received a FaceBook message from a friend in Colorado. She mentioned that she stopped by the blog and commented that she used to live in Scituate and my photos made her homesick.
As Becky was getting ready to go, I had a few minutes to satisfy my curiosity. Where is Scituate and why would my friend from Colorado miss is so? Well, it was within a half hour drive of Braintree and since we were already going way down south of Boston, why not go and have a look?
Those that do not live in the Boston area may not be aware that there are two camps. The North Shore camp and the South Shore camp. Each has its own biases and generally do not stray into the other’s territory. We on Cape Ann refer to Cape Code as “the other cape”. Becky and I often think about going to the other cape. It would be pretty cool, they have boats, fresh sea food, lighthouses…uh, hmmmm. We have that here…in our front yard.
Above is the lighthouse, we found a great little restaurant that served sea food. I had an excellent fish chowder and a broiled seafood plate with stuffed sole, haddock, stuffed shrimp and scallops. Perfecto! Stay tuned, I’ll have some more shots from Scituate with boats and all of the fixings that make Maritime New England such a wonderful place.
