About this blog

This will be our diary of our two week vacation through the New England states. I'm actually creating the blog on my old site and importing it here from a RSS feed, we'll see how well that goes. I'll go ahead and keep links here in this description just in case.

Day 4 - Nantucket - June 3

Sleepy harbor town in the early morning hours This was our first big adventure (and our first blog post together!) after arriving in New England. Exploring Cape Cod on Sunday was nice and scenic and the National Seashore was very awesome, but our Monday Nantucket Island trip was even better.  ​ This also happened to be our first ride on the high speed ferry. Because we were staying just a few miles from Hyannis, we were close to the Hy-Line ferry terminal. Hy-Line operates a fleet of high speed
Day 12 - Mount Washington - Riding the Cog Railway to the Top

Day 12 - Mount Washington - Riding the Cog Railway to the Top

Mount Jefferson is the one with the snow. That snow doesn't melt until July. Incredible. A must do. Ride, don't drive.  If you ever get up to the New England states and you travel to New Hampshire, a visit to Mount Washington is something you do not want to miss. On a good day you will get to witness one of the most spectacular views anywhere in the country. Reaching 6288 feet into the New Hampshire sky, Mount Washington is the king of the White Mountains and is one of many peaks in the

EDIT: This RSS import really messes with the blog post. This is a better link: http://blog.northgeorgiawx.com/new-england-trip/day-3-saturday-we-arrive   We made it! We arrived in West Yarmouth about 4:30 pm on Saturday.  Along the way we stopped to visit two lighthouses in Rhode Island and eat a lobster roll. 🙂 I've added a few pictures and a couple of videos below. Most were taken at the two lighthouses or on the way to them. Oh... and my lobster roll. 🙂 You can't forget the lob

Day 2 Friday - Another Ride

After the fiasco from yesterday, we have decided to skip the stop in Philly to see Independence Hall, and I think that decision proved to be a wise one. Also... if you travel and use Google Maps... just know that the drive times you see is probably not going to be the time you actually spend on the road. Obviously Google doesn't know how many times you're gonna stop, and it doesn't know how fast you'll travel among other things.  The bridge you see in the picture above is one of many on th

Day 1 Thursday - The Long Haul Part 1

Home to Baltimore Here we go! Up early this morning for one of our two longest continuous stretches of driving. Our destination today is the Hyatt Regency at the inner harbor area of Baltimore Maryland. Thanks to @mudrun for all of the great information about the Baltimore area! This leg of the trip is about 650 miles and Google is estimating about 11 hours on the road, so it's going to be a long day. The plan is to leave at 4 am in order to miss rush hour traffic in Charlotte and DC.  T
