Moody Fourth of July


Mother Nature decided to provide the fireworks this year up in the Boston area. Yesterday in Newburyport, the lightning show was outstanding. And the rainbow that followed was mystical and beautiful. Today, it has rained all day so festivities were canceled. But I managed to go for a great run through the Plum Island Wildlife Refuge in a steady rain and loved every minute of it. The surf is up, thanks to Arthur somewhere out there. I don’t know why I love love love moody days at the beach more than sunny days. I guess it has something to do with my Scottish roots. My grandfather George Sutherland Bain hails from Wick, Scotland, so there you go.

The rest of the weekend promises to be perfect. Enjoy! And Happy Fourth of July!

I came across a beach wedding on Plum Island last weekend and got to thinking of all the great spots for destination weddings and honeymoons around the globe. Here are some I recently wrote about in For the Bride magazine that’ll sweep you off your feet. I selected the best honeymoon destination around the globe for each month of the year.
