One of the few kitchen gardens we saw anywhere in New England. This one was right in the heart of historic Salem, MA. In the background you can see the mast of the ship in this next pic.
The Friendship. Salem, MA
This made me giggle. Because I'm 12. (I think it was a liquor store.) Salem, MA
On our way to Vermont I saw these 2 banty hens with 5 chicks. They were so cute that I woke Gene up (he was so sick from a cold & hadn't been sleeping well), who made me turn the car around so he could take pics. What a softie my guy is for chickens.
One of 4 covered bridges we saw in Vermont. This one still allows traffic over it.
Inside of a different covered bridge; the Scott Bridge is foot-traffic only. It was so serene and peaceful.
Weathervane in Providence, RI. We had gorgeous weather that day! But Providence...? Meh, skip it.
The Mayflower II. Plymouth, MA
Tail end of the Bruins Stanley Cup parade in Boston. This is near the Boston Gardens. In all the times I've been to Boston, I've never seen so many people and so few cars. It was a terrific day to go into the city. Right after I took this picture, the team captain for the Bruins rode past us on his bicycle. He's 6'9" - anyone that tall looks funny on a bike!
Candidate for ugliest building ever (though this one from my undergrad alma mater is also a contender).
My cousin is a pastry chef for a restaurant called Oleana. She brought a whole bunch of delicacies from the bakery owned by the same people. To. Die. For. Above are the chocolate-hazelnut baklava and almond cakes with rose petal jam.
What vacation in New England would be complete without Maine
Saw this in an old-fashioned farm store somewhere in New Hampshire. This store was known for its cider donuts, a New England food we don't have in the Pacific Northwest.
Nice milk jugs! Me in Newburyport, MA
