Unlike last year, this summer was cool, a bit rainy, and chock full of activities. This year, we managed to find this amazing fish at an antique shack on the Cape See Botticelli’s Venus Collect more shells that I might know what to do with Countless trips on the ferry to and from work Winning tons of tickets at the local arcade Kayaking a bunch of times throughout the state Hiking even more mountains and surviving 😉 Getting one of…

The Old Stones of New Salem

The Old Stones of New Salem

While others might go in search of ghosts during the month of October, we usually can be found in other places…though no less spooky: historic burial grounds and cemeteries. Luckily, New England is chock full of old stones!   There are 3 general designs being used during this time period: The winged death’s-head which began as very ornate and then became less elaborate. The winged cherub, which looks like a much more pleasant version of the death’s-head. Finally, somewhere near…

Photos of Travels Past

Photos of Travels Past

One of my favorite photos from our travels comes from our trip to Munich, Germany.

I have yet to see a statue as awesome as this one that included a chicken. 🙂  

The World of the Underground

The World of the Underground

One of the weirdest places that we found ourselves wandering through in Paris were the Catacombs. While waiting in line for 2 1/2 hours was horrible, walking among some of the 6 million bodies made us forget that. For only 10 Euros, it was totally worth the cost, but you might want to go later in the day if you don’t want to wait in line. Bring some cards, water, and a good book to pass the time while waiting…
