Adventure Scrapbook – Boston, Massachusetts

There were an overwhelming number of things to do and see in Boston. After checking out the scene along the waterfront, we opted for a beer and distillery tour. I always enjoy visiting local industries whether they are an integral part of the historic fabric of a city or region or a burgeoning new enterprise. Some of the stops were more interesting than others, but all-in-all, it was an interesting and entertaining look at Boston.

Adventure Scrapbook – Newport, Rhode Island

Though I have been to New York City several times, I know little to nothing about the east coast of the United States or New England culture. I just finished up traveling along the east coast of the U.S. and Canada and was amazed at the beauty along the coast, the historic buildings, and charm of the towns and cities. Newport, Rhode Island was a special place. I got the impression it might be a little overrun with visitors during the summer, but we found it slowing down. As we walked through town, classic cars rolled by on their way to a car show out at the fort. We stumbled onto a boat restoration school and were invited in by the only student working that day to check it out. But, best of all was the food. It was exciting to finally enjoy my first lobster roll and I look forward to future visits.

Adventure Inspirations – Cares Drop Like Autumn Leaves

“Camp out among the grass and gentians of glacier meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of Nature’s darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” 
- John Muir -
