This is the view we had from the balcony of our hotel room in Gloucester over the weekend. (The image shown above is actually three photos stitched together in Photoshop, so the perspective is slightly off.)
I love this view for two reasons, the first being the natural beauty of the beach itself, and the second being that we were viewing it during our first-ever two-night stay without the children. Two nights alone in Shawshank would have been just fine, but two nights alone at the beach? That’s good livin’, baby.
