Hawaiian Dreams

Hawaiian Dreams

Woot! We just booked our hotel and flights for our 2nd honeymoon. A few years ago, we combined a friend’s wedding on the Big Island with a trip to Kauai and Oahu. During that trip, we got epic sunburns, saw turtles, jumped off of giant cliffs, dodged not one but TWO hurricanes, and visited the USS ARIZONA. It was amazing. However, this time around we are going to actually spend time on the Big Island. A lot of people talk…

The Sunflowers of Newbury

The Sunflowers of Newbury

Sunflowers are one of the last types to bloom and definitely are a herald of summer’s last days. Cooler weather and early sunsets are on their way! Colby Farm in Newbury, MA has been using these beautiful flowers to make a carpet of yellow every fall for the last 12 years. People travel from all over New England and even the Northeast to catch a glimpse of them! Luckily, this year we had a good amount of rain and pleasant…

Parker River National Wildlife Refuge

Parker River National Wildlife Refuge

Last year, we didn’t get out to kayak at all. The heat was so bad and the timing never worked out. This year, we decided to change that! Since this was our first trip, we decided to do something fairly easy. Luckily, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provided us a great place to launch our kayaks from in Newbury, MA: Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. There are two different “water trails” laid out in the marsh, both taking between 2…

National Trails Day!

National Trails Day!

This past weekend was National Trails Day here in the US and without knowing it, we happened to be hiking in New Hampshire! We have long attempted to climb all the 4,000 footers in the White Mountains of NH. There are 48 mountains that are above 4,000 feet throughout the area (some just above by 3 feet or so!) and by completing them, you can get a patch and the satisfaction of completing a significant milestone. Some people are crazy…

A New Deal in Hyde Park

A New Deal in Hyde Park

We rarely have weekdays off together, so when they do happen like on Veteran’s Day, we try to make the most of them. This year, we went out to the Hudson River Valley to make a visit to the Home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Presidential Library. Usually it costs $18.00 per person to visit both of the buildings, but because of the holiday, there was no charge to get into the National Park Service site.  Getting both sites for…

Autumn Fills the Air

Autumn Fills the Air

Yesterday, we decided to be tourists in our own backyard and join the crowds going to view the beautiful foliage of New Hampshire before it was too late.   We were blown away by the views!     After buying our tickets, we waited in line for only a little bit. There are two tram cars that take 80 people each in a ride that takes about 10 minutes each way to the 4,100-foot summit for views that can’t be beat….

Fall River Historical Society

Fall River Historical Society

Just in time for Lizzie Borden’s birthday, we took a trip to Fall River to see some history related to the case. Trying to avoid the heat of the city, we drove down to Fall River in search of cooler breezes and spooky history at the Lizzie Borden House. Getting there was very easy, but upon arrival, there was no one to give the tour and the price totally turned us off. Not only that, some other people wrote in…
