  1. A place important to you? Or just a random photo op? Either way, it is a lovely subject. Your blog posts generally arrive quite late in the day, so this birthday wish is belated. Hope you had a great day.

    • This is a place just down the road from my parent’s house in Wellfleet. It belongs to an old man whose family used to own the entire Hollow (or so the story goes). His name is Paine and it is Paine Hollow so…

      • And so it is that I’ve spent a bit of time this morning, attempting to tie that property to Thomas Paine, but with no success. He seems to have died without issue; losing his first wife and child at childbirth, and separating from his second wife before ever leaving England. It’s interesting where chance and a wondering/wandering mind will occasionally lead us. This was fun. 🙂
