And one said - "Piet, you are a Wit". And then my wife said - "well, at least you are half right!". I know from experience...

Re: The Wyeth House at Lobster Cove - 2 ways

I like them both for their contribution to sense of place, but the story told by the second image is very special. Those slippery rocks look very inviting and I can only imagine the storms that house has seen from that wonderful vantage point.
