"New England"


Trip to New England

A series of articles about a trip I took to New Hampshire and Maine

New Hampshire Autumn

I was packed and ready to go at 5 o'clock in the morning. I didn't think there would be many people flying at 5 o'clock on Sunday morning. Wrong. The place was packed.

Going through airport security, I had my first experience with a body scanner. I've heard of these things. They can see through your clothes like Superman...

Covered Bridges

What's a trip to New England without covered bridges? I love covered bridges, so, of course, it was mandated that we look for bridges. We didn't have to look far as there were two right in the area where we were staying. One was old and for walking only. The other was a bridge that was actually in use. Cars could drive on it, so we drove across and then stopped on the other side to make the required photographs of other tourists making pictures.

Goodbye to Leaf Peeping

I didn't set off any more car alarms, but I did get in the wrong car. I ran out in the rain opened the door to a car of the same color that was parked next to ours. "Hello," said a lady inside. "Whoops, so sorry, your car looks just like ours." Seems I'm determined to be embarrassed to death by rental cars.

Land of Lobsters and Lighthouses

The first lighthouse we saw was in Portland, Maine, and was appropriately called Portland Head Light. It was very picturesque, like a postcard or calendar. The next lighthouse was called Pemaquid Point and it had a lot of accessible rocks on the seashore that were not fenced. We were warned not to walk out on them as big waves have swept people out to sea. Of course, Mo walked out there anyhow. Lucky for him there was no big wave and no hurricane at that time.

Test-Tube Lobsters

I found out more than I ever wanted to know about lobsters in Maine. They are so proud of the hideous creatures there that I'm surprised they are not on the state flag. However, a large part of the economy of the state is based on the lobster industry. Maine produces 75% to 80% of all lobsters used in the U.S.
