Wide open spaces and empty vessels reinvigorate my creative juices after the confines of the weekday routine. I’m talking about big sky weekends, a simple hand-thrown white ceramic bowl and a grill-press packed in the car trunk — essential components for a seaside road trip in search of fresh-caught appetizers, eaten in the cool ocean air on a hotel room porch. Voila! Foodie glamping.
TIPS: Ask for a remote room location with a patio or small deck. Don’t forget to pack a high wattage extension cord, olive oil, lemons, pocket knife, salt and pepper. The remainder is at your own risk (pleasure.)
White bowl by Wisconsin ceramicist, Abigail Smith. I can’t get enough of her work. This is my second piece from Abigail, and as with the first, she enclosed a hand-printed, hand-written thank you card and small ceramic ornament.
Ash wood cheese board from Brooklyn woodworker Ariele Alasko. Baseball bats are made from this wood!
Kitchen linens from Fog Linen and Ambatalia.
Floral printed fabric by PB&J Basic Grey pattern #30322. Same here in red & yellow color.
Beautiful photos as always. I recognize this place!
Haha!!! YESSSSS! I was wondering how long it would take you to notice your hometown hood & pier #2 🙂 Frankly, one of the best spots in the world.

It really doesn’t get much better than this, does it? A weekend experience perfectly captured!
