Jon Crispin's Notebook

Peta Pixel/Peabody Essex Museum/Farnham’s

There was a very nice mention of the suitcases project on PetaPixel yesterday. Thanks DL Cade!

Cristine, our friend Kate, and I drove to Salem today to see the J M W Turner exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum.  It is amazing and worth the trip.  No photos allowed in the gallery, but it is a very cool museum.  Note the early Airstream trailer (lower right) that is part of the mid century LA exhibit.

We then drove up to Essex to eat some clams at Farnham’s.  For those of you who follow this site, I have posted about this place before.

The upcoming 10 days are going to be very hectic for me, so please be patient if I don’t respond directly to email.  I’ll do my best.

    Gorgeous salt marsh. Thank goodness there’s a bit left! Great shot of the museum, as well. I feel like I’m up in the crow’s nest and looking back through sails…just lovely. Bet the Turners were equally so.
