“In fairy-land, there is no measurement of time; and, in a spot so sheltered from the turmoil of life’s ocean, three years hastened away with a noiseless flight, as the breezy sunshine chases the cloud-shadows across the depths of a still valley.

excerpt from

“Mosses from an Old Manse”

~Nathaniel Hawthorne

    • Thanks Liz. The Old Manse is in Concord, MA, next to The Old North Bridge. So many great historical sites there, I have spent many hours just wandering around.

  1. What a beautiful house and grounds! You must’ve had a wonderfully fun time photographing everything because it truly shows in the results.

    • I actually took these photos last year. It was a cold day and there weren’t many people visiting there. It was very serene!
