Falmouth Colors: Quissett Notebook, 1/30/15

The quiet of a winter harbor casts a mesmerizing spell. On my way back from Woods Hole yesterday, I detoured to Quissett to snap a shot of a friend’s home in the snow for her to enjoy while she basks in south FL warmth. The sight of the harbor was irresistible. Here’s what I saw:

While in Quissett, hiking around The Knob in winter is special in a different way from the summer. The potteries (Flying Pig, Quissett Studio Pottery) are open for a browse and that perfect mug for your valentine. Whether it’s house-roasted coffee at Pie in the Sky, or lunch/dinner at Quicks Hole,¬†or a bracing ride on the ferry to see the “other” Martha’s Vineyard, you’ll have a memorable day!

Breathe the quiet, listen to the crows, imagine the summer life, and drink in the solitude and beauty of a harbor in winter.
