North Dartmouth, Massachusetts – Day 4

The motorhome is parked it my cousin Bob’s and his wife Donna’s home at North Dartmouth, Massachusetts.

Yesterday was a semi-decent day. With a light cloud cover the high temperature was 79 degrees with 80% humidity. Still too hot and humid for my liking.

Yesterday morning while Bob was at his part-time job, Donna, Mary and I went to the Glass Museum at New Bedford about five miles away. Rather than the glass pieces themselves, I enjoy the photographic element of seeking out the random patterns, shapes and colors. Here are some of the photos that I took there…

In the afternoon, the four of us drove the about 12 miles to Mattapoisett to visit Marissia, their 18 year old grand-daughter who has been blind since birth…


Marissa is a truly remarkable young woman despite her handicap. In addition to being attractive, she’s very intelligent and personable. She recently has traveled to the Grand Canyon in Arizona and France. She will soon start college at Bridgewater State University about 45 minutes from her home and will study communications. In 2007, she had a neat experience, The family keeps a copy of the newspaper article in a glass frame on the living room wall…


Bob and Donna then took us on a driving tour of the scenic town of Mattapoisett including this lighthouse on the shore of Buzzards Bay. I shot this photo using the watercolor mode of my camera…


We concluded the afternoon with a meal at a seafood restaurant where I had the New England Clam Chowder and Broiled Scrod. Another nice day!

Enjoying visiting with relatives and friends is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
