Monarch Migrations

Monarch Migrations

“The caterpillar does all the work, but the butterfly gets all the publicity.” ~George Carlin Humans aren’t the only ones in North America who travel south for the winter. Right now, most of the East Coast is in the midst of a huge migration in preparation for the winter: monarch butterflies. Beginning in September and October, the eastern/northeastern populations travel from Canada all the way down to central Mexico! They will overwinter there, like many other snowbirds, and then start…

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…

Copenhagen Card: A Review

Copenhagen Card: A Review

A lot of cities have cards that are designed to save you money by providing discounts, but are they worth it? Some really don’t seem to be base on the fixed amount of times and places that you can visit.   We had heard good and bad things about the Copenhagen Card, but were hopeful that it would work out. Our first attempt to get a card did NOT go well. There is a kiosk in the airport by baggage…

Denmark Castles: Rosenborg Slot

Denmark Castles: Rosenborg Slot

  Everyone loves castles, right? Luckily, Denmark has many different options for you to choose from! Just down the street from our hotel (see our review here) was Kogens Have the location of Rosenborg Slot. Slot in Danish means castle! Rosenborg is a lovely renaissance castle with three levels on top of an amazing basement (we’ll get to that in a minute).  Bags are not allowed into the structure, but there are lockers located in both the ticket area and…

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….

Amazing Places: Benefit Street in Rhode Island

Amazing Places: Benefit Street in Rhode Island

Could you imagine living in this house? What a beautiful building! Officially called the “George Drowne House,” it was built in 1862. By that point, Benefit Street was already populated with colonial houses, but this house was definitely one of the stand outs for me! Located at 367 Benefit Street, there are 10 condos inside this house now which rises 2 1/2 stories above the ground. The rest of the street is pretty amazing as well. I was told that…
