Hello Irene~Chatham, Ma

Howdee all,

We haven't seen the brunt of the storm shouldn’t be too bad here in Chatham, Ma.

We had a nice walk early morning and late morning took a drive around town.

The winds had picked up.Irene~Late morning_001

There was minor flooding, in a few low lying areas.

Hello Irene…thanks for being kind to us so far..


  1. Just a bit of a blow up here in Gloucester. Chatham probably got hit a bit harder.

  2. Looks like you, and many others, may have dodged this bullet.

    So sandblasting makes you look younger huh? I may have to try that if it removes wrinkles. ;)

  3. Lovely pictures and awesome photography.

  4. So glad you are all ok... I have to say I was worried about you!!! GREAT photos!!!
    Have fun & Travel safe

  5. Glad Irene was good to all you in Cape Cod!

  6. Hello again dear Dawn. Glad you are okay. All is back to normal here in Andover. Not so good in CT though, as you know.

  7. Glad you are ok, Dawn!! Great series of photos showing the shoreline and storm! We're still just dull, super hot heat here in Kansas.

  8. Cool photographs, Dawn! So glad to hear things were not as bad as forecasted. I'm happy to know you are safe and sound. Whew!

  9. What a fantastic way to enjoy life in the USA. A country I love visiting. Very envious of you. Best regards fron the uk.

  10. Thanks everyone! We certainly were lucky and dodged the storm.
    We really didn't know where else to go.
    Thank goodness we were at the right place!

    Thanks again for your concern..I really do appreciate it.


ok what do you really think?????
