Artists Cottage Holidays
The cottage windows frame changing seascapes - fishermen, emptying their lobster pots from their small boats on a sea as smooth as glass; in summer, ocean ripples become myriads of tiny prisms refracting dazzling sunlight in all directions; in winter, wild crashing waves dramatically reminding of the Atlanticís shear power and vastness. Artists, inspired, painted here.
