Tim Little of Cape Night Photography kidnapped the Red Chair last night (from the Woods Hole Inn) and took it on a moonlit romp all over the Upper Cape! If you have not yet experienced Tim's incredible night shooting, I highly recommend you check out his website here. In the meantime, here is one tantalizing image from his four hours in the freezing cold with the Red Chair. Wow! He says he was planning on a hour but the chair inspired him to shoot and shoot in the chilly night air. His fingers are still thawing, and we look forward to sharing more of the night with you as he sends it along...
The little Red Chair continues to lead an interesting life!
The Red Chair returned to Woods Hole a few days ago, and low and behold it snowed as if on cue. Snow is rare here, because we are so surrounded by the warm Gulf Stream waters, but last night we got a nice dusting and here is a quick photo essay of a Woods Hole walk in the snow.
Pie in the Sky is right next door to the Woods Hole Inn, so of course the Red Chair enjoyed a hot coffee and freshly baked pastry before heading out in the cold...
Happy children were sledding on the golf course and the Red Chair could hear their squeals of delight.
With the wind blowing hard from the north, the Red Chair was knocked over flat by the gusts while this picture was taken. Brrr....
Not too many fishermen out today.
From the porch of Crowell House (a Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute aka WHOI building) you can see across the village green with the peaked roof of the Woods Hole Inn in the distance.
The Red chair ended its New England tour in Providence RI hosted by the Innkeepers from the Historic Jacob Hill Inn members of the Select Registry in nearby Seekonk, MA. Bill and Eleonora Rezek were more than happy to take the Red Chair on a tour of the many attractions of Providence, RI including the Historic East side with Brown University, RISD and Prospect Park, to the Capital Building and Federal Hill, Providence's "Little Italy" finally the Downtown Skating rink and ending the evening with a special viewing of the world renowned WaterFire!
Visiting Leonards Antiques was a highlight! Mick Jagger bought his bed here!!
Getting in the holiday spirit....
Red Chair loves farm living, especially so close to a big city like Providence! Best of both worlds...
A visit to the East End of Providence is not complete without a stop at Antonelli's.
Innkeepers helped the Red Chair get into Waterfire, an amazing Providence event! WOW! This is one of the hidden benefits of B&B travel -- the inside skinny on local events.
The Historic Jacob Hill Inn is so lovely -- what a wonderful place to rest at the end of a busy day of touring Providence Rhode Island!
The Red Chair arrived at the Emerson by the Sea in Rockport and promptly signed the guestbook, sharing an entry with famous former guest Ralph Waldo Emerson who was said to have prized the locations proximity to the wild natural feeling of the sea.
The view from the rooftop is a great place to experience the Inn's panoramic ocean view, and maybe contemplate Santa's arrival in a few days?
Beautiful holiday decor make descending the grand staircase fun.
Relaxing on the broad porch with some of the Red Chairs rocking friends.
Scenic Rockport where the Red Chair meets the red boat house and learns why Rockport's beauty has inspired an artists colony:
All this and shopping too! What a great place to spend a few days. Thank you for a wonderful stay Emerson Inn. It was a memorable trip!
We were so excited to have an extra special guest this weekend — the Red Chair! For those of you not familiar with the Red Chair, it has been making its way all over New England to select Inns and B&B’s. We were looking forward to its visit and gave it a great Gateways visit with all sorts of activities, including a visit to Tanglewood!
The Red Chair arrives at the Gateways Inn.
The chair unwinds with a cocktail in the Gateways bar.
The Red Chair visits Tanglewood!
The Red Chair enjoys Olivias Overlook, with a view of the Stockbridge Bowl.
Live entertainment in the piano bar? Delightful!
Alas, the Red Chair must be on the move. Holidays in New England continues onward!
