Purgatory Chasm

19 10 2014

We had the opportunity to visit this natural resource. We when for the hike hoping to capture some foliage photographs as we are in the Autumn season. And we did. It was a great day in this amazing place. If you do a little research I’m sure no mater where you live you can find some place interesting to enjoy the sights and sounds and even capture a few photographs of your own. Enjoying Life!

Purgatory Chasm is a State Reservation.

A unique natural landmark, Purgatory Chasm runs for a quarter of a mile between granite walls rising as high as 70 feet. Popular with picnickers and rock-climbers alike, the Chasm is believed to have its origin in the sudden release of dammed-up glacial meltwater near the end of the last Ice Age, approximately 14,000 years ago.

Trails lead to a wide variety of rock formations, with romantic names as The Corn Crib, The Coffin, The Pulpit, Lovers’ Leap and Fat Man’s Misery.

The move was created completely using Google+ auto awesome movie maker functions including the music and translations. Also it was composed completely from my Android smart phone and uploaded to YouTube.

West End Creamery & Family Farm

19 10 2014

West End Creamery & Family Farm is located just a stone’s throw from Route 146—between Worcester, MA and Providence, RI. They are down the hill from Purgatory Chasm State Park. Many come just to relax and enjoy an ice cream cone on our large outdoor deck overlooking Swans Pond. Others spend time with friends on our premier miniature golf course and finding adventure in our 5 acre corn maze in the Fall.

Come in to West End Creamery and stay a while. Absorb yourself in the charm of our post and beam building — solid oak timbers and decor from our dairying days. The waterfront property is a relaxing destination for all ages!

Injoy the fall adventure and corn maze with the family.

Blackstone River

19 10 2014

On a ride back from visiting Purgatory Chasm and the West End Creamery we stopped off to see the Blackstone River area. In this area what used to be a factory is now living spaces and condos. Along the river banks is both a walking and bike path. This time of year as the leaves are changing in New England the repletions on the river was very nice and worth a few photographs.

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.
