beautiful st. andrew’s

Monday, October 10th, 2011

St. Andrew’s, New Brunswick was our half way point between Halifax and Boston. We stopped here on our way home because it seemed like an ideal spot to catch a whale watch in the Bay of Fundy. In our short time here, St. Andrew’s proved to be much more than a half way point or […]

higher ground

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

A main road in my hometown has a special section that is on a hill. When in a car at speeds around 50 MPH, if you look up at the right time, you can see the Boston skyline in the distance – a whole 15 miles away. Yesterday, even though we expected rain, Mike and […]

tall ships

Last Friday afternoon Lisa, Bryce and I left for Montreal from Boston, while our friend Caitlin boarded a plane in New York to meet us that night. Our timing was perfect and we were able to swing by the airport to pick her up on the way to the hotel. We settled in and set […]
