2 Hours in Boston

Video 32 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

We are “back on track” with our Around the USA in 90 Days segment. We left off in the beautiful state of Massachusetts. We will pick up again in the Boston, Cambridge area. One thing you need to decide when you are traveling is how much do you plan for and how much do you just, “wing it”? For us generally our motto has been, “anyway the wind blows”. So here in Boston after working out the parking situation we took a bike ride through town. As we left Boston we stopped by Salem for a drone flight before moving into Maine. Coming next…… Lobster in York Beach heading to Bar Harbor. (Ba Haba)

Plimouth Village – Lives of Pilgrim Settlers and Native American Indians

Video 29 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

Sailing on merchant ships in the winter from Plymouth, Devon (UK) to what later became Massachusetts would be hard enough. But being unprepared for poor soil, squatting on Indian land, disease and famine meant 2 out of 3 didn’t make it during the initial years. So what’s the good news? Thousands more of your fellow Englishmen would be lusting for adventure and fortune, coming behind you to settle in the new frontier. But wait, there’s more – then there were the Dutch, French and the Spanish to contend with as well… and their religions and edicts from their leaders!

From Fort Adams to Newport Beach, Rhode Island

Video 27 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

We spent the night at Point Judith State Park (Fishermans Memorial) only to find it rained all night, so no biking the next day. No problemo, we continued on to Newport Beach and checked out the mansions including the Breakers, Marble Mansion, Great Gatsby home and more. Finally, we enjoyed the scenic and impressive Fort Adams. Rhode Island gets its share of rain yet no wonder it truly has verdant views.
