It’s that time of year again and Hurricane Jose has sent us high winds and surf. The beehives are battened down and the bees are kicking the drones out.
What an adventure. We started with two hives in mid April and we now have four. Thanks to artist Judy Scanlon Melanson we ended up with a fourth hive. Judy visited us for open studios and asked why the bees were hanging out in the tree. We raced out of open studios leaving our guests with a friend and quickly captured the swarm.

And now to some Hurricane of 1938 photos, art and life on the Rhode Island coast.

Here is one photo being used in Smithsonian Magazine.
