Yes, it’s the middle of September and a chill is in the air but on this day the sun was out, the oldies were play’n the grills we’re cooking and the cars kept cruise’n into the lower lot by the Bass Pro Shop also a sponsor of Mass Cruisers Auto Club in Patriots Place at Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots. I heard it said that there was an estimate of close to 3000 cars tonight. It’s also been said that this cruise is the largest cruise on the east coast and by the turn out tonight you can believe it.

A Day In Newport RI

13 09 2014

We enjoy taking day trip visiting different New England towns and the surrounding area. On this day we took a trip to Newport Rhode Island. A short drive from Boston. We took a stroll along the Cliff Walk as the tide was coming in. This always makes for exciting and interesting photos. You can see some of the mansions along the way and interesting architecture. From there we visited one of the harbors when we noticed a large ship. At first it look like it a moored just off shore however it was actually moving and coming into dock. Come to find out as we spoke with the crew this ship was a training ship that people can sign up for the summer months. It was not the ship they usually use as it was in for restoration so the captain had to rent this one for the season. From her we went down town Newport for dinner over looking the harbor. It was a great night as the sun set over the harbor and the dinner was great. Here are a few photos we took during the day. Please enjoy them.

A Day On Cape Cod

17 08 2014

We had the opportunity to spend a day on Cape Cod. It was a very clear day. Not a cloud in the sky. We stopped of for lunch for a lobster roll as we drove down route 6 and had a nice conversation with the waitress. She recommend a number of great locations in the area we could take some photographs and I do believe we visited them all. Including a number of Cape Cod Light Houses we we even climbed the stairs to the top of one of them. We stumbled on Uncle Tim’s Bridge and Island that was surrounded by a salt marsh at low tide we we could see baby crabs running about and into their sand holes they must call home. We walked along the beach at low tide and saw a boat stuck in the sand at low tide standing upright only by its keel. Never saw that before and my shoes got wet getting that photo. And an other boat with anchor attached both just sitting on the sand. but made for a nice photo. All in all it was a great day as we ended up on the tip of the cape driving by all of the sand dunes, through Wellfleet on to Provincetown were we had dinned over looking the harbor. After we walked around down town Provincetown we headed home. Below are a few photos we took during our day on the Cape. We hope you enjoy them.

A Day Trip To Qgunquit Maine With Stops in York, Cap Neddick and and Nubbles Light House

2 08 2014

We had the opportunity to take a day trip to Qgunquit Maine. We have visited this area many times over the years. We on this day we had to as always make a stop at Flo’s Hot Dog road side stand Cape Neddick, Maine. We have been coming here for years now. The Steamed buns, snappy dogs and Flo’s own family relish really hit the spot, We always bring a bottle of the special relish home with us. 

After lunch we continued the short drive to Ogunquit were, like always took some photographs along the Maine coast. We walked the one mile long walk along the Marginal Way. A very beautiful walk along the coast till we got to Perkins Cove. As it just started to rain we stopped into Barnacle Billy’s for a drink. Barnacle Billy’s looks over Perkins Cove, with all the boats and hand operated foot bridge. We took some more photos and had a great time.

We chose to move further into Perkins Cove to the Lobster Shack as this has special meaning for us. It’s the place where I had my first ever lobster so many years ago. On this day we chose to have a lobster roll. So good served with chips and coleslaw. 

After dinner and as we were approaching sunset we made our way to Cape Neddick and to Nubbles Light House. Took many more photos of the light house as the red light house beacon flashed on and off. 

Before we hit the road for our ride home we had to make one more stop in York Maine and to purchase some Goldenrod kisses. Salt Water Taffy. 

We had a great day in Maine as always. Please enjoy a few of the photographs from our day in Maine.

A Day ON Block Island

2 08 2014

We had the opportunity to spend a day on Block Island off the coast of Rhode Island. We left on the high speed ferry from Point Judith. It was only a 13 mile 30 minute trip. We learned the Block Island is approximately half way between Rhode Island and Long Island New York.

It was a fun day were we took a one hour taxi ride to learn about the island being our first time here. Had lunch at The National Hotel overlooking the harbor. After lunch we rented a motor scooter, now that we know our way around the 3 by 7 mile island. This gave us time to take some photographs as we enjoy doing. At the end of the day we had to enjoy diner at The Surf Hotel bar, again looking over the harbor. Got into a conversation with some other folk also enjoying a day trip to the island. Even the waitress conversed with us explaining how her husband and son was working here as well for the summer. They are from Venezuela. Its a lot of work but had some time for fun as well in the America she explained.

All in all we had a great day and got a lot photos we can look back at from time to time.

Here’s a few of them. We hope you enjoy them.
