    Freehold - goodbye Manhattan, hello NJ

    March 31, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 6 °C

    This morning we checked out and went for a walk for our final meal together. We chose the restaurant called THE SMITHS not far from our Cambria suites hotel. The location has been very good for us. The breakfast was huge!! I ordered a granola with berries and yoghurt, which was yummy, but Craig ordered the Brioche French toast – huge!! We then all walked up to H&M for undies, tee shirts etc. and eventually said goodbye and parted at Macey’s. Craig bought a great red and white floral shirt and then we went back to the hotel, got bags and walked to the NJ Transit station. We had to wait for the platform to be listed and then everyone rushed to get on the train. A lovely, strong black woman helped me with my bag down the stairs and we got on the train fine. All went on time and Rick and Molly were there to meet us. They have a lovely, spacious, pretty home and we really enjoyed being welcome. We went into nearby Red bank for a vegan dinner at Good Karma. It was fine – my buffalo wings made of reconstituted protein were quite spicy. Back home for chatting. Craig’s back has been bad today and he had a difficult phone call with Phil about his mother. However, we also spoke to mum and Luke and Alexander and it seems better than we thought for now.Read more

    Service, sculptures & Princeton

    March 31, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    Today after breakfast we went to a memorial service for “tid” a friend of the Goldbergs. It proved to be a lovely interesting experience. She was clearly an accomplished kind woman. We also met some really nice people. Back home and we got organised and went to the sculpture park which was huge. There were many very interesting sculptures there And we spent several hours wondering around The gardens. After that we drove to Princeton the University town. Had a great meal at Dixon’s.
    and then walked around the University present area which is Old but beautifully maintained with gorgeous buildings.
    Great day with Rick and Molly 😍😍

    April 1, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 7 °C

    Lazier day at first and we went to the local supermarket - fun looking at all the different products and self-laser scanning. After lunch and a rest, we went for a hike around the Hartshorne Valley area. Lovely 4 km in different woodland with some sea views. The drive back was through gorgeous areas where there were many huge houses. Even Bruce Springsteen lived there before. Yeh!! We also enjoyed an amazing pork rib dinner with cucumber & lime cocktails! Rick & Molly are lovely people to be with. Also adding some photos of Princeton from last night :)Read more

    It's snowing and it is so pretty

    April 2, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 2 °C

    Easter Monday and we woke up to very pretty snow falling. We had a very relaxed day planning, sewing (my hem) and bird watching. Craig needed a slower day for his back. Molly is a very knowledgeable bird watcher. After washing and planning in the afternoon we went out With Rick do you have a look around Freehold. Yes that is Bruce Springsteen‘s hometown ❤️❤️❤️
    In the evening we took Rick and Molly out for dinner to a local Turkish restaurant called Galata. The food was yummy but the serves were ginormous. Craig then talked them Into taking us to a local Costco which is almost identical to The one in Adelaide.

    Day 46 - Under the Boardwalk

    October 23, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 11 °C

    Today was a travelling day and before we left New Jersey we went to the boardwalk at Asbury Park. It was sunny with a hearty breeze on the Jersey Shore and Alice and I enjoyed a slow stroll. A fitting Sunday. We got a coffee, popped in to the shops, admired the murals and after a while decided to get back on the road.

    We were aiming for Philadelphia which was to be our home for three nights. It didn't take too long to get there and the three floors to get our ever increasing luggage up the stairs meant exercise was also sorted for the day. We popped to a local Mediterranean restaurant for dinner and we both leaned towards the vegetarian options. We had a feeling our stay in Philadelphia was gonna involve steaks. Without cheese for me.
