Water on Wednesday, Outdoors and Wordless!

The shrub roses are blooming, the poppies are fading, the irises are iffy, and the grapes are going gang-busters . . . but today, it's not flowers and plants at That Old House, but rather water at our family's Beach House on eastern Long Island's North Fork . . . .

*************************************

It's Wednesday, and I'm posting a double-hitter -- Wordless Wednesday, hosted by Dixie at French Lique (click here!) and Outdoor Wednesday, hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer (click here!).

Thanks to Susan and Dixie for all their fuss and bother in hosting -- Mr. Linky has been giving all our gracious hostesses fits lately!

Crossing the Hudson River, from New York City to New Jersey,
on the lower level of the George Washington Bridge (aka "Martha"). Back home. -- Cass

  5. I came over from Old Centennial Farm House and I have to say that your house is gorgeous! I live in a tiny town and also in an old house, but not the one I want. There's a big old, rundown house here in town that I pine for! I want to buy it someday and fix it up - I have no idea how we'll ever do it on our limited income (I'm a stay-at-home mom, husband is laid off) but a girl's gotta have dreams, right?!
    I plan to get lots of inspiration from your blog!
    Have a great day!

  18. Now that is one nice view. The photo on the GW bridge made me a bit homesick for NY. I wanted to comment on your post last time with your sweet parents. 60 wonderful years is lovely. My Mom had Alzheimer's too. I wrote about it in my Moms day post. I love your old hardware post. When I closed my parents home I took all the old hardware with me and use the the cut glass knobs in my home now.

  27. Thanks for visiting me today. I am not sure, but I think this is my first visit to your blog. Love the header picture. Had to read back a few posts, since you were making me laugh. Enjoyed the salt and pepper one too. Since I have not checked the comments on that yet to see if your question was answered I will put in my two cents worth. As far as I know, the smaller holes is the salt and the larger holes the pepper. I hope you eventually get your porch finished. Loved all the water pictures too!!

  35. Somehow the Atlantic Coast will always call my heart, however much I love my life on the Pacific coast. I guess it's in my blood.
    Beautiful images.
