We’re making a U-Turn…

Posted by on June 25, 2015

JUNE 25, 2015.

WE’RE MAKING A U-TURN. Having the freedom  to change travel plans at will is one of the major benefits of motorhome travel. Our udirection of travel is never mandated or locked-in by airline or hotel reservations. And this morning we made a spontaneous decision to change our short-term travel plans. We were about to begin visiting some major cities and population centers: Boston, New York and Washington, D.C.. As much as we still want to experience these places, right now is just not the time. No, we decided this morning, now is just not the time for crowds, train schedules and subways. It’s not the time to see the Statue of Liberty, take in a Broadway play or visit Radio City Music Hall. We’ll get to all that. But not right now.

HEADED TO CAPE COD. Right now we want to see more of New England’s coastline, quaint towns and villages. We want to spend more time in the Adirondacks, New Hampshire and Vermont. Rhode Island and Connecticut beckon. We want some days filled less with sightseeing and more with time to sit by a stream and watch leaves follow the current over the rocks. And I’m still on the lookout for that bear, elk and moose that have been evading me for the last year. More country. Less city.


We’re headed to Cape Cod National Seashore.

THE NEW PLAN. So, from our current location just outside Boston, we won’t head to the big cities. No, we’ll leave in the morning and drive to Cape Cod, where we’re going to spend two weeks beachin’ it at the National Seashore, eating some of the world’s best seafood and taking photos of the sun glistening on the waves.  How ’bout taking a ferry to Martha’s Vinyard for the day? Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? From there we’ll visit Sturbridge, “an 1830’s Living History Museum.”  And then we will return to the Adirondacks, followed by more time in Vermont and New Hampshire. Here we go!










This is a photo I took at Lake George, at the base of the Adirondack Mountains. We are going to return to the area, this time on the eastern side of the mountains.
