Niles Beach, Gloucester

I like this little beach. As you can see the view is beautiful.



The clouds were awesome too




Not to mention you can see Boston in the distance! And over there on the left is Dogbar Breakwater. We'll see that in another post.




Jay from Cape Ann Images has a really nice photo of Boston's silhouette from Niles beach on his latest post. Jay is a true-blue, dyed in the wool Gloucester native so he knows everyone, and where everything is. If I have questions about Cape Ann he's usually my go-to guy. Thanks Jay!









Ten Pound Island lighthouse sits off to the right




And here's my girl, Elise. Cute as a bug.




She's a silly, life-loving, fun kid who was thrilled to have a mommy and me day. Yes, she still calls me mommy.




'Did you get me doing a cartwheel???!!' Hee hee . . . ' I got ya!'




When you have kids, life gets in the way, and often there doesn't seem time enough to enjoy the simple things. This particular day was a day was a lot of fun.

I love it! Your daughter is adorable and so pretty! Did I ever tell you that Brooke's (my eldest) middle name is Elise? I love that name.

I spent Friday with Brooke shopping and it was so wonderful to have that time to connect one on one with her. It's very bonding. Because you are so right, life moves so fast when you have kids.

Awwwww . how sweet your little girl still calls you Mommy! You tell her that she is in good company - John Kennedy Jr. called his Mom, "Mommy" also:)

What a wonderful day you two had. You made beautiful pictures of the beautiful beach and sea and of course of your lovely daughter. I only have sons and did miss these days but now I have granddaughters growing up fast and we have our shopping days now and then.

Nice Sharon! I was there with my dog the day before. (Don't worry...I pick-up after her) Someday you should go back and check out the killer sunsets.

Steve Borichevsky said...

Glad you had a good weather day!

Pat said...

Oooh, I love the beach and ocean and this makes me yearn to be near one! Your daughter is just gorgeous! I love the candid pictures of her, and the writing in the sand!

Rural Rambler said...

Sharon I love the shot where Elise has written in the sand and her footprints are under the message. As an adult she will have such great memories of times spent with you. I have such wonderful memories of special time spent with my Mom that I can bring up and warm my heart. Alot are memories from the beach. Your daughter is darling :) The B/W is stunning!

I am Mommy to my kids too. When our 30 year old son got married his wife told him it was childish but he still calls me Mommy. My Grandmother was Little Mommy until she died at age 92. She was only 4'10".

Lovely daughter and lovely photos. You are surrounded by such beauty. I especially like the photos of the sandy beaches...the winter sky makes the beach sand look like small crystals. Sea witch

I think they must be flooded out today. You were lucky the weather held out.

Your daughter is adorable. What a beautiful place for a mommy and daughter day!
I laughed about what you said about doing a cartwheel. I tried one last fall and stumbled and almost cracked my head:)) I guess I won't be trying that again!
