Brewster, Cape Cod, Massachussetts, 15 juillet Le tout petit État du Rhode Island mérite que l'on s'y arrête, que vous soyez amateur d'architecture et d'histoire, de voile ou de musique. C'est à Newport, petite ville de 25 000 habitants joliment installée sur l'île Aquidneck au coeur de la baie de Narragansett, que l'on peut profiter de toutes ces merveilles. Après des débuts mouvementés lors de la Guerre d'indépendance américaine, Newport fut un lieu de villégiature huppé dès la fin du dix-neuvième siècle et les richissimes familles qui venaient ici passer quelques semaines estivales ont fait bâtir de véritables châteaux, les "mansions". Les magnats du rail comme les Vanderbilt ou du charbon comme les Berwind n'ont pas lésiné sur les moyens et la promenade le long de Bellevue avenue nous dévoile des dizaines de ces magnifiques manoirs ... read more

July 30, 2019 - Boston, MA - Weather: 93.2°F/34°C, Clear skies, no wind This cruise adventure actually started with a series of car trips: first Waterloo to Ottawa followed by a casual two-day drive down to Boston. The trip to Ottawa was necessitated, in part, by an offer from our good friends to drive us to and from Boston for our cruise. While in Ottawa we celebrated B’s birthday with a house and garden tour in Almonte followed by a delicious dinner over in Gatineau. On our way through Boston we took the opportunity to stop at the excellent John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, before heading on to our hotel for the night in Quincy, MA., just south of Boston. Tuesday morning saw us navigate the heavy Boston traffic and confusing one-way streets before ... read more

Une fois rendus dans la région de Boston nous voulions voir Salem et ses sorcières! L'endroit n'est pas très long à visiter et l'attrait est dans les souvenirs de toutes sortes qui se rapportent à la magie. La pluie était au rendez-vous et même la brûme nous a empêché de voir le phare tout près. Une journée décevante finalement. Après une journée de repos et de pluie, c'est la visite de Boston, le soleil brille et le tour de ville en autobus nous à permis de voir les bâtisses et les lieux intéressants. Nous avons fait un arrêt au centre ville pour marcher dans le parc public et plus tard nous avons découvert 'Market Place' avec son 'fast food' incroyable, chinois, Thai, Indien, pâtisserie..etc malheureusement c'était à la fin de la journée et il fallait prendre ... read more

Not as much luck with transportation this morn. $75 for the 18 km ride from our hotel to the Cruise Port. Easy peasy embarkation onto Celebrity’s Summit. Met up with our friends Kaye and Richard and started enjoying the avails of our new ride. The Coffee shop has really nice atmosphere , the coffees are top shelf , and the confections are the best on the ship. Kate has been drinking Lattes without added flavours. I slept there the first night as it’s my favourite spot. Just heard someone order a white chocolate mocha with whiskey! We feel like we are in the lower percentile of age onboard, this has happened before but we were not expecting it,on this cruise. The on board entertainment , well that which is provided by Celebrity, has been okay. I ... read more

On our New England road trip, after we visited Mystic Pizza, we made our way on the local ferry to eat lunch in Martha’s Vineyard and then ended up traveling to Boston overnight. We had found a tiny room for rent in a high-rise flat, and the price was infinitely cheaper than anything we had seen at a major hotel chain in the city. The location was ideal and right in the middle of the city. The spot was called The Beacon Street Inn. Though we had to walk down the hall to shower and the room was no bigger than a closet, it was an ideal place to stay, as we were only going to be there one night and wanted to spend the entire day exploring the city of Boston. We started our morning ... read more

We woke one last time in the cabin that has been our home for over one month. There was no rush this morning. Our two bags in the hall were taken ashore by the porters. We still had our carry-ons, and what we planned to where today. The Lido was bustling with activity and there were actually lines waiting to get food. Again, we sat on the pool deck; but, well away from the window and drainage trough that nearly twisted Sharon’s ankle yesterday. “Did you intentionally choose this table?” Sharon inquires. I just smile. At the Main Desk there was another line. The daily News and Puzzles were not out and available; but, you could still get them from the front-desk staff. We weren’t scheduled to see the onboard immigration until about 9:15 AM and ... read more

Arrived at Bradley International airport in Windsor Locks, CT, on a Saturday, 8/18/18, around 3:15 PM and sat on the airplane for about 40 minutes in a thunder storm that, due to the lightning, kept the ground crew from guiding the plane to the gate. Finally deplaned, picked up our rental car, and drove to Williamstown, MA, home of Williams College, a rather exclusive, expensive, almost ivy league, small college. Checked into our motel, had dinner, and back to a relatively early bedtime. Up on Sunday for a hike to the top of Mount Greylock, the highest point in Massachusetts at 3,491 feet. Started at the AT crossing of Notch Rd. in the Mt. Greylock State Reservation and hiked across the summit of Mount Williams on the way to Mt. Greylock’s summit for a hike of ... read more
