Holiday Snaps

Boston’s glass skyscrapers give the city a sense of lightness. I loved the reflections of buildings and sky, and the contrast between old and new.


More pictures of “Bawston”.


Boston in bloom. We stayed in the neighbourhood of Beacon Hill and everywhere you looked were the most colourful window boxes, beautifully bright against the red brick buildings.

Boothbay Botanical Gardens – I thought the porcupine sculpture would not look amiss in my garden, but the price was a bit off-putting.



This is the Nubble Lighthouse at Cape Neddick, Maine. It reminded me of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, although the movie wasn’t shot here.



This is the Portland Head Light at Cape Elizabeth, Maine.

And finally, some magnificent Maine mansions.
