The timing didn't work out for Chris and I to take a full week-long vacation, but we declared it to be Vacation Time anyway. While at home, we made fancy drinks, went on a trail run, gardened on the patio and watched the Olympics. We were able, however, to escape for a few days to beautiful Cape Ann, Massachusetts. On a whim, we booked a room at an oceanside inn in Gloucester.
It was a great getaway. We stopped in Northampton on the way there to walk around and grab lunch. We went running both mornings we were away, sat out on ocean rocks, caught a few rays and took our time doing everything.
On the way back, we stopped in Pittsfield for my mom's art opening at the First Fridays Artswalk. The Artswalk is a monthly event where downtown Pittsfield shops transform into art galleries featuring some of the very best of the Berkshire artists.
