Spend a day beach combing, wandering along a deer trail through the old growth, birding, food gathering…
Unwind. Sip a good cup of tea, drift away in a book. Watch the tide roll out, roll in. Dream.
“The possible’s slow fuse is lit by the imagination.” Emily Dickinson
Decks and Garden
Margery Fish’s tangled garden, planted in 1932, survives and blooms to this day. It was Margery who planted the Copper Beech tree that today dwarfs the Copper Beech House on the side facing the harbour.
Margery also planted bulbs, an oak and chestnut tree, hawthorns, laburnum, rhododendron, mock orange and lilac, that all riot together in the gardens surrounding the house. In early spring, the English garden transforms into a wonderland of blooms and flowering trees.
