I live in New England most of the time. I’m a wife, mother, daughter, friend, writer, sister, sister-in-law and fiddler. I’m not a very good fiddler, but it’s great fun no matter what. In the summer my husband of a zillion years and I head out West, to a house on a lake in the mountains. Many years ago we called that area home. And it always will be. So in July and August, I cook for family and friends and friends-of-friends. We play music. We drink wine on the dock at sunset. We eat pie.
I love every minute of it.

I was searching for a bit of information about Seaside Hotel, a show I found on PBS earlier this summer. I was delighted to find your post about how much you enjoyed it, too. I think I am in Season 2 now. I love that the characters, especially Mrs. Anderson and Fe, are kind and compassionate. The guests all have their own issues but most are respectful of the staff and there doesn’t seem to be a formal class divide that you see in Downton Abbey. Watching
a new episode each Monday night is like unwrapping a little treasure; I can’t get enough and am so glad to have more seasons ahead of me. If you haven’t seen The Detectorists, you might find that you would enjoy it, too, but it has only 3 seasons. The main characters are low-key, humble, and sweet, as they search for hoards of ancient artifacts in the English countryside. Thank you for your blog post and take care. Kim
Thank you, Kim! Everyone I know has loved SEASIDE HOTEL so much. I think there is another season being filmed, so we have that to look forward to. The characters are so appealing, as you said. You are going to love the whole series! I will definitely check out The Detectorists. I’ve watched a lot of old Time Team episodes. 🙂
