Down the Road

6x6 inch pastel on paper
This is up the hill and around the bend just a short distance from town and the ferry. I love this little street with all of the Victorian era homes that have withstood the test of time. I am envious of the little gardens of sea roses and various other beautiful plants that absolutely will not grow in Texas. This is such a happy and proud street, a place where strong and courageous people have lived for centuries raising their families and spending time with their friends. Many of the people of Vinalhaven now support themselves as lobster fishermen and women. They brave the sea day in and day out even when the weather is not as beautiful as this summer Vinalhaven day.
