Cape Cod Nautical

As the snow is falling outside my window this Saturday morning, I'm browsing trough some old Cape Cod pics from last summer and dream away.

I don't recall where they are all from.

This sail cloth duffel bag shop is from Main Street, Chatham though.  
Eye candy!

I love the classic Cape Cod houses with their characteristic weathered shingles and white trim.  I could live very happily in one of those houses above, with all my blue and white striped shirts, neatly folded in a walk in closet and an assortment of Sperry boat shoes by the door.

I'm not sure what it is about the sea, beach towns, marinas and nautical images and patterns that captures me.

I find red white and blue, especially in striped form, 
to be just stunning.
You should know how many blue and white striped shirts I have in my closet.  I can't get enough.
I think the stripes magically take me to a happy place - the ocean.

Old ships in the marina with names that makes your imagination wander... I find them captivating...

They pull me in.

Double Trouble 
Don't you wonder how?

I am a nautical goddess! 
(No, not me, silly, her, Artemis.)

Old and rusty with a simple (seemingly random) number just enhances the beauty of the ship.  
I wouldn't like to have a rusty boat myself (if I had one), but I could look at somebody else's boat and think it's a "beaut".

An old weathered and worn pulley in all it's charm.
Would love to put it on my wall.

I am dreaming away to the approaching summer and to the coast.
I can almost hear the waves and the seagulls on the beach and feel the warmth of the sun that is about to set.
This is a place that makes me happy.


  1. Now you're making me miss Cape Cod and summer! Wish I could get there this year!!! Great mid-winter post.

    1. I KNEW I could make you miss Massachusetts, ABQ girl!!! Ha!!!
      Well, I miss YOU.

  2. Men hej!

    Så festligt att du bloggar just idag. Igår tänkte jag på dig, gick in på din blogg och precis som jag misstänkte var det jättelängesen du hade gjort ett inlägg. Blev lite orolig, hoppades att det inte hänt något allvarligt.

    Men så visp var du överst i min blogglista, ett alldeles nytt inlägg:)

    Välkommen tillbaka!

    Härliga bilder du visar!


  3. Hejsan Maria!
    Inget allvarligt har hänt, du vet, man kommer av sig ibland.
    Men, så slog inspirationen till idag.

    Tack, och tack!

    Kramar tillbaks.

    1. Hi Renata!

      Thank you, I just love the ocean scenery.
      Melting hot? Wow, that sounds terrible.
      As long as there is not humidity, and the nights cool off, I guess that would actually be kind of nice.


  6. Hej! Det var länge sen jag såg nåt från dig, men ni har ju haft en häftig vinter har jag förstått (eller det var kanske längre söderut som vädret brakade loss ordentligt). Du bjuder verkligen på härliga bilder, och som du skriver...vilka båtnamn! Bekräftar mina misstankar om att sjöfolken är ena underliga typer!

    1. Haha, Lotta! Jo, vinter har vi haft i år, jämfört med förra året.
      Kul för barnen.
      Kramar tillbaks!!!

  8. I am the exact same way in the winter. I'm from NH and we are getting absolutely hammered with snow this winter. I can't wait to get back to the Cape this winter. Great pictures, definitely brings back some great memories. That lighthouse actually inspired the tattoo I have on my arm. Almost time to start looking at Cape Cod rentals for this year. Summer seems so close, yet so far away!
