Two Historic Places by the Sea
Massachusetts lays claim to many historic ocean destinations in New England.
Two that I recently visited were—Hull, overlooking Boston Harbor; and Nantucket Island, once the whaling capital of the world. Even though they have changed over the years, they still call to a time not so long ago, where a love for the sea was a way of life. You can sense that everywhere you look in the picturesque landscapes that are all around. The opposites of past & present and near & far, I learned from Aesthetic Realism, are ever so close to one as you see new meaning in the not-so-distant past of the 18th & 19th centuries. I highly recommend a visit to these wonderful locations. You’ll be glad you did.
