    Not the best

    June 29, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    Two Amtrak(train company) employees were killed in Washington. Our train was consequently 2 hours late. We eventually arrived in Narangansett to find that the rented house on a fabulous street was bordering on uninhabitable. Shock, disbelief, anger, disappointment. This is the week of 4th July holidays. There is nowhere available in town, we have to stay here.
    After a visit to the local Benny's we had purchased 2 inflatable mattresses and the stores whole stock of coat hangers. The landlord eventually came over and replaced one of the mattresses and agreed to return tomorrow to fix the shower.
    We met up with family, ate at a local restaurant with plenty of wine and returned to make the house as hospitable as possible for our first night in Rhode Island.
    It can only get better. Surely!!
    Unfortunately this soured our arrival although we were still delighted to meet up with our Australian family and meet Mike (the groom).

    Lobster & a singsong

    June 29, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    I admit we moped about a fair bit this morning, coming to terms with our lot but by evening we put on our glad rags and off we went to a welcome dinner organised by the grooms mum.
    We were collected by minibus and driven to Westerley to a local brewery. We met Mikes family and friends and ate lobster, mussels, clams and chicken. This was followed by chocolate brownies, cookies and water melon. A really lovely meal and plenty of local wine and beer. It was a lovely idea to meet the grooms family before the wedding.
    On the way home on the minibus we sang mostly Leeds United and Yorkshire songs giving a loud rendition of Ilkley Moor Ba'tat.

    The Wedding

    July 2, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    The wedding was at a beach club, half the deck was under cover and half exposed. It was grey and breezy but comfortable. We had all enjoyed getting ready with the help of a bottle of prosecco. The ceremony was outside and quite different to a British wedding, less formal and more personal. Emily's dress was beautiful and very her. We then had canapés which were tuna, scallops, chicken, and crab cakes. Mikes brother gave the first speech followed by a very amusing speech by Thea and lastly a witty and irreverent speech by Pete. This was all followed by a great buffet. Clam chowder, clam stuffies, deep fried clams, portobello mushroom sliders, lobster slider, chicken slider. This was all followed by strawberries, berry coulie, chocolate brownie and cookies. The food was amazing. We danced the night away and walked home tired and happyRead more

    Fishermen's Memorial State Park

    April 15, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Unsere erste Nacht im Camper. Ungewohnt war vor allem die Stille nachdem wir in NY einem ständigen Lärmpegel ausgesetzt waren. Aber es ist schön, dass wir von nun an auf uns alleine gestellt sind. Gefühlt geht die Reise erst jetzt los und wir können nun mit dem Camper vollkommen frei uns bewegen und die Ostseite der USA/Canada erkunden.Read more

    Newport Hiking trail

    June 4, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Dieser Footprint ist nur für Papa :-) dein Enkel ist fast den ganzen Trail für dich gelaufen. Weil du ja leider schlimme Rückenschmerzen hast und gerade nicht wandern kannst. Wir sind sehr stolz auf den Maxi. Er ist super trittsicher und hatte einen riesen Spaß an der Wanderung und Thildi auch. Leider war es zu schön, sodass wir zu lange geblieben sind und wieder erst abends in Cape Cod auf dem Campground ankommen werden 😬. Wenn es schön ist und es einen guten Spielplatz und Strand gibt, bleiben wir einfach mal zwei Tage, wir müssen heute noch ein gutes Stück fahren. Zur Stärkung waren wir ausnahmsweise schon nachmittags essen und haben grad bei Dunkin Donuts gehalten😇. Natürlich der Kinder wegen, wir haben nur aus Geselligkeit auch einen 🍩 geholt😂Read more

    Charlestown to South Kingston

    June 29, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Busier than usual day... lots of fun, and we still made it to the hotel at a reasonable hour. Route 1 was more highway-ish than we would have liked today, though there was generally a decent grassy shoulder. Said good bye to our views of the Long Island Sound. The coastal road has been beautiful. The bouncy bungee thing at Adventure Land was second to the one at the EnKa Fair, but still fun. Miscellaneous photos below are 1) close up of a tree that, along with its neighbors, was covered with zillions of caterpillars. 2) There are many stone walls here made with no mortar... not sure why they don't all fall down.Read more

    Umbrella Factory

    June 28, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Funny little collection of shops, greenhouses, gardens, along with emus goats and chickens. The emus were happy to be patted, though one made a good try at stealing Nate's glasses. The photo is nate recoiling after the emu made contact with the glasses.Read more

    Westerly to Charlestown

    June 28, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Walked 20 yesterday, so today would be just a 10 miler and we would have time to go paddle boarding this afternoon. Website said they were open till 6:00, but when we called at 2:45, they said they were closing early. 🙁. Still, we had a really nice day The motel (Phil and Ann's Sunset Motel)l is bare bones in the rooms, but outside there's a big field, with all sorts of games. We played shuffle board and swam, got take out from a nearby restaurant, and we're watching baseball. Laundromat said aren't as plentiful around here as I thought they would be... resorted to doing some wash in the sink today. Tomorrow's hotel has laundry facilities (yay, Holiday Inn!) so we'll buy some laundry soap and wash everything properly,Read more
