The Road Curves

  • A view up Beacon Street where the road curves under a canopy of trees covered in freshly fallen snow

As small as Marblehead is, it still amazes me when I notice small scenes that seem like they belong somewhere else rather than in this New England town.

This black and white image of the canopy of snow covered trees was captured on the same day as yesterday’s shot of Old Town House. I had driven up towards Beacon Street after exploring downtown Marblehead and parked my car facing this section where the road curves and climbs a small hill under a canopy of trees. The scene would be as likely in Vermont or Colorado as steps away from Grace Oliver Beach in Marblehead.

If you see my wife around town today, wish her a happy anniversary. Fourteen years today (with nearly ten spent in Marblehead).

    Beautiful. When I first moved to Marblehead three years ago and came upon this area, I thought immediately it felt so New Hampshire, where I also spend time. So eclectic this charming little town.

    Happy Anniversary to both of you!! The minute I saw “The Road Curves”, I knew there was only one place it could be – heading from Grace Oliver’s toward Peaches Point.. It was one of my Dad’s and my favorite walks. It’s nice to know that some scenes are still the same 70 years after the fact.
