If you read my last post, you know that my daughter Carrie and I took an overnight trip out to North Adams, Massachusetts, which is a town located in the Berkshire Hills near the Massachusetts – New York border. North Adams was an old mill town back in the day. These days it is a town filled with a lively art scene primarily because of the opening of the wonderful Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) in 1999. While we were in North Adams, we stayed at The Porches Inn, which is right across the street from the museum.
All of my photos this week for Ashley Sisk’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday are from that trip. The prompts for this week are: Time to Eat, Getting Ready, Playtime, Sweet Dreams and Scrub-a-dub. I did have to stretch the limits a little, but I managed to get something for each prompt. And here they are:
As part of the turn-down service at Porches, we each got a couple of these lovely little handmade chocolate mints. It was Time to Eat!
At MASS MoCA, there was a section of the museum that was having new walls put up and painted. They were Getting Ready for a new exhibit.
For me, and for Carrie too, I think, going to places like MASS MoCA is like Playtime. Here, Carrie is posing at the end of one of Sol LeWitt's wonderful huge paintings. I really liked the reflective quality of this particular one.
The Porches Inn is a really neat place to stay. It is built in old block of Victorian Row Houses that are located right across the street from MASS MoCA. Here's a photo of our room. The rooms are decorated with retro furnishings that are very attractive and fun. And the beds are très comfortable. Mine certainly allowed me to have Sweet Dreams.
The bathrooms at Porches are also very nice. Ours had a claw-foot tub and a large shower with a rainforest shower thingy. Here is a bit of the tub. If there were three men in it, it would be like the old nursery rhyme, Scrub-a-Dub Dub, Three Men in a Tub. I actually think it's Rub-a-dub dub, but who's really keeping track.
We had a great time and I hope we'll be back at some point in the future. I am not done with all my photos from this trip, so be prepared...there's more to come.
