DSC04654Driving along the road that hugs the shore from Falmouth to Woods Hole on the Cape has to be a favorite ride.

DSC04654I found this delightful coffee shop and bakery called Pie in The Sky. After further researching I saw that they had rave reviews.

DSC04654As I entered the bakery you could smell that delicious aroma of coffee brewing, and fresh baked goods. A little bloggers haven, since there was free Internet and a big old Mac computer sitting on a desk.

I sat and embraced the last bits of the sunset and reflected on the day. All this, a great cup of coffee and the best warm popover that I have ever had. I love when that happens, delicious tastes to punctuate a gorgeous day filled with sights and sounds that make a memory.


Wishing you a wonderful day filled with adventure and beauty. If you stop by Susan's place you can visit lots of wonderful Outdoor places.

Those are some wonderful photographs, Karen! And what a cute little eatery! Speaking of which, your pictures are making me starve!

Do you know that I am still marooned down here away from DH and my painting??? Hopefully, I will be home next week. Long story. But then I can blog about my prize!!! Yea!!! :-) I am going to go straight there, grab it, and take it to be framed!!! Mr. Magpie says it is GORGEOUS in person. I wouldn't have expected anything less. It's waiting like the last of my Christmas cheer...

Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Thank you for taking me along on your journey! The ocean sounds made me feel as if I was right there with you and I could almost taste that popover! What a beautiful clear day to take a drive and take some pictures. It makes you say "ahhh" and relax.

Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

Beautiful photos and for some reason I never think about snow on the beach!!! I guess that comes from being landlocked in Tennessee. This a very pretty post!!!

A beautiful way to while away some time. The ocean is so beautiful! It makes me long for springtime:>)

I love the Eastern coast. How lucky that you can take drives when ever you want!! The sunset is beautiful and I am happy you enjoyed it at Pie In The Sky (it sounds like a name for one of your paintings!).

Happy Outdoor Wednesday, Karen!
