The wheels on the truck were turning by 0920 hrs. this morning – a great travel day – sunshine on our back, and much less traffic. In a general southwest direction, we made our way out of Massachusetts and on the way to see and explore new places. We have figured out that rest areas […]Read more "September 29 – Leaving The Mass(es)"
We needed to visit Connecticut, and our daughter suggested we check out Dinosaur State Park (and let her know if she would like it). We left, on what our GPS suggested would be a 90-minute drive and arrived 3 hours later. You know what? It was completely worth it! I had visions of seeing dinosaur […]Read more "September 28 – Dinosaurs in Connecticut!"
Thursday was dedicated to visiting Rhode Island – we explored Prescott Farms and the Newport Car Museum. Prescott Farms is a lovely little place with a magnificent herb garden and kitchen garden – I want those when we stop traveling and have a garden again! I think we both want the windmill in our future […]Read more "Sept 26 & 27 – Rhode Island and Massachusetts Exploring"

In order to NOT spoil our day, we opted […]Read more "September 24 – Maine to Massachusetts"

Our travels took us through Seal Harbor, Northeast Harbor, along Somes Sound, through Somesville, south to Southwest Harbor, Seawall, Bass Harbor, Bernard, West Tremont, Seal […]Read more "September 23 – Mount Desert Isle"
Another gentle start to a lovely day. We discussed the next few days, talked with the campground staff about local things to see, and opted to add a day here. Lunch was trying out W.A. Bean & Sons Maine Red Snapper Dogs. We found them in a local grocery store, along with Frankfurt Buns – […]Read more "First Day of Autumn/Exploring Stonington"
