Jun 13, 2015 - Portsmouth, NH and Boston

After three weeks on Cape Cod, we headed to the Boston area. We actually stayed in Salisbury on the New Hampshire line, which is about 40 miles from Boston on the North Shore. Stephanie was pretty excited about going to Boston – as many of you know, she collects lapel pins from the places we visit, and with all the historic sites in the area, she figured she would make a haul. We were going to be here for two weeks and she had us pretty well running somewhere on most days. • We made plans to have lunch with my mother’s last living sibling...

Aug 22, 2012 - And onward...

Left Bakers at about noon, after a short but sweet visit with Gwen (the gal who hung out with Steve last night) and her sister Megan, who drove from PA to Whitinsville to see us when she heard we were there (the fact that the rest of her family was hoping she’d come home to visit probably paid a role as well…). Megan used to babysit for us… and now she works for a company who is contracted to analyze rock and soil samples obtained during drilling for natural gas. I’d say her current ‘gig’ earns her a much more reliable paycheck… and Chuck...

Jun 20, 2012 - Salisbury, MA

Hi All, Well, here it is June 21st already! Here I am back and want to get this sent today so everyone know we are doing fine. We stayed here in MA and did road trips to NH and ME along the eastern sea shore. The weather has been hot and humid around here the last couple of days, it's suppose to rain tonight and than cool off some. Thank god for air! Driving along the east coast is sure different than the west. You just don't pull over to take pictures because there are very few places to stop. This is one reason why a lot of my pictures...

Oct 26, 2011 - Massachusettes

Now in Massachusetts our 29th State, yesterday after getting to the campground we walked ¾ mile to Salisbury Beach then walked another hour to the end, then of course we had to turn round and walk back again must have walked 5-6 miles in all, done us good as some days too much sitting in the car. That evening we drove a few miles to Newburyport where they were holding a Halloween festival, lots of cut out pumpkins lined the streets. Sunday decided to go to Salem it is famous for the Witch Trials in 1692 but there were no witches although...

Land's RV Trip

Sep 10, 2011 - Cape Ann

After spending much of yesterday driving with another long driving day ahead tomorrow, it was a treat to spend the day moseying around on Cape May. This coastal area about a half hour drive north of Boston has a beautiful coastline and quaint, prosperous looking towns. Rockport has long been a favorite of artists and tourists. A red fishing shack built in the 1840's on Bradley Wharf has been the subject of thousand of photographs and paintings. We took quite a few ourselves last time we were here and could not resist adding to our supply. A...

Sep 9, 2011 - heading south

Eastport had a beautiful location on the seacoast with many scenic nooks and crannies. The huge tide changes provided an ever changing view. We were already beginning to see signs of autumn as some of the leaves began to color. But in terms of things to do, it was a nowhere place, especially when the weather was drizzly as it was for much of our stay. Except for a small grocery store and some touristy shops, there was nowhere to buy anything and nothing to do inside. You would have to drive twenty miles for a drug store or one hundred miles...

Sep 5, 2011 - Salisbury, MA

Today was a beautiful day and we had an uneventful trip...no detours, no low clearances, no wandering in the wilderness. The Beach Rose Campground is small, but neatly kept and only half a mile from the beach. The owner of the campground gave us a mobile repair guy's number so John called to ask about working on the steps. While we waited for him, we drove to the beach and found the restaurant the campground owner had recommended...Seaglass. We checked the menu and made a 7pm reservation. We promised the girl who took our name and phone...

Jul 18, 2010 - Potter Visit

Nice size rustic campground. Staff as pleasant at checkin. Roads are all gravel midsized stone. Numerous sites not all are level. All are covered in woodchips. Most sites have full hook ups. Sites have alot of tree limbs that hang overtop the RV. There are three bathouses the only downfall is you have to pay for hot water for showers 50 cents for 5 minutes.

Boston Mass

Jul 9, 2010 - Next Stop the Beach

Started up Winnie this morning and no more noise. I'm hoping it was temporary because I have no idea where it was coming from. We headed up the Hudson River Valley toward Albany and then headed east on I90. Our destination for today is Salisbury, MA and the Beach Rose Campground. The trip across Massachusetts was uneventful. We arrived at the campground and when I got out to hook up the water and electric, I was attacked by a swarm of green heads. Massachusetts beaches are notorious for greenheads. We went to Salisbury Beach after dinner...

Jul 7, 2010 - Final Day in Salisbury

This morning our plan was to drive to Neuburyport and catch the Go train to Boston. The train we planned on catching departed without us at 7:56. We decided to drive down I95 and park closer to Boston before catching the public transit. We drove to Chelsea and caught a town bus to the subway. It worked perfectly and we probably got to Boston before the train. Parking was free, bus ride free, subway $1.70 each. The Go train alone was $7.50 each for a one way ticket so it really wasn’t a big deal missing the train. Our first plan was to do...
