Essex Steam Train Fall Foliage Excursion

17 10 2016

We had the opportunity to take Foliage Excursion.

We boarded the historic Essex Steam Train for a delightful fall foliage excursion, combining sight-seeing and photography.

This historic Essex Steam Train departed from Essex Station on a northbound trip that skirted untouched woodlands, trestle bridges, tidal marshes and inlets. As we enjoyed ourselves in the bountiful Connecticut River valley, foliage we pass through the quaint towns of Essex, Deep River, and Chester on our journey to Goodspeed Station.
After lunch in a lovely restored dinning car we traveled a short historic countryside ride to Gillette Castle for more beautiful foliage, photography and nature.
It was a great day!





Waldon Pond & Author Henry David Thoreau

17 10 2016

Walk around Walden Pond and the spot that was once home to the renowned author, Henry David Thoreau.
The Walden Pond Reservation is located south of Massachusetts Route 2 and (mostly) west of Massachusetts Route 126 in Concord and Lincoln, Massachusetts. The reservation is 335 acres and its principal feature is Walden Pond, a 64.5-acre body of water. A short way north of the pond the site of Thoreau’s cabin is marked by a series of granite posts. Portions of the pond’s shore are beach, while other parts descend steeply to the water from trails that ring the pond.

Phantom Gourmet Food Fest Dance Off 09242016 short

12 10 2016

Today we had the opportunity to attend the 16th annual Phantom Gourmet Food Fest held on Lansdowne and Ipswich Street next to Fenway Park.

It was a sold out event with upwards of ten thousand people and 100 food vendors to sample.

There were many parties you can choose from held in many of the local bars in the area.

We chose to attend the World Famous Purple Costume and Dance Contest at Tequila Rain hosted by Dan Andelman who is also the host of the Phantom Gourmet TV show.

It was a lot of fun with some funny and very good local dancers. Even the audience was invited to get onto the dance floor to get their moves on.

This video is in part some of the fun from this event.
It was originally broadcasted on my Facebook live page.
Hope you enjoy some of the fun.

Bruce Springsteen Born To Run 09152016

12 10 2016

We had the opportunity to see The River Tour. Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band at Gillette Stadium. His final performance in the US after being out on tour all summer.

Just like only The Boss can do, he broke the curfew. He played four plus hours. The music, the hits and the stories he told were amazing. Not only a great musician and story teller but you got the feeling Bruce and the entire band was having fun!

I understand Bruce is going back out on tour, but maybe not as you would think. The Boss wrote a book, that’s right it’s a book tour to promote his new book titled Born To Run. If you have to opportunity to see him live. Do it! You’ll be glad you did.

This video is one of the songs from the show.
