I was in a pastel state of mind when I created this necklace.
The sticks are aquamarine and the purple beads are natural lilac stone. They are so pretty and girly together! This is available at Etsy.
Clipper City Rail Trail
While Jim and I were waiting for a restaurant to open to grab some lunch, we took a little stroll in a part of Newburyport, MA that we have not walked through before. This was back on a gorgeous September day!
We walked under a bridge that leads to the beginning of the Clipper City Rail Trail. This area features various artwork. Here is a mural titled Newburyport Collage of prominent buildings in Newburyport painted by Robert Leanna.
This area is a harbor for fishing and recreational boating.
This red piece is titled Brushstrokes by Robert Lorenson. It is powdercoated aluminum.
My favorite is Peace Offering by Michael Alfano. This bronze sculpture has an eagle on 1 side.
There is a dove on the other side.
Set atop the steps leading to the rail trail is another sculpture titled Eclipse by Robert Lorenson which is composed of stainless steel.
There is just 1.1 miles of this trail so far, soon to be expanded. After viewing photos online, Jim and I will have to check out this walk which is full of interesting sculptures!
Was lunch worth the wait? Oh yes! Plus we wouldn't have discovered this trail!
The day was beautiful and we sat out on the deck at Michael's Harborside. This was a first for both of us...a watermelon feta salad! On the bottom is cucumber. Balsamic reduction, feta cheese and crushed cashews were sprinkled on top of huge chunks of watermelon. Delicious!
Thank you for stopping by! I wish you all a wonderful week! ~Val
