North Dartmouth, Massachusetts Day 6 (GA569)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Shady Acres RV Park in Yuma, Arizona. I may be here until March 4th.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted August 4, 2013…

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

Yesterday was a finally decent day. With a light cloud cover the high temperature was 72 degrees with 69% humidity. Still too humid for my liking.

 

 

Yesterday Bob, Donna, Mary and I drove the about five miles to New Bedford, Massachusetts to attend the 99th Annual Feast Of The Blessed Sacrament aka Portuguese Festival. We attended this event during our 2010 visit to this area and Mary enjoyed it so much, she insisted that we do it again. So we did! Here are some of the photos that I took…

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

 

First thing, we headed for the barbecue area where lots of folks were already at it…

001

 

 

 

 

 

Then Donna and Mary started on ours. The skewers are about seven feet long…

003

 

 

 

 

 

011

 

 

 

 

 

This monkey watched in amusement as Donna and Mary worked…

012

 

 

 

 

 

013

 

 

 

 

 

014

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, they are done and show off their handiwork…

015

 

 

 

 

 

Now over to the barbecue area…

020

 

 

 

 

 

021

 

 

 

 

 

To get the fixings off of the hot skewer, my cousin Bob inserted it on to a stainless steel V and pulled…

026

 

 

 

 

 

While Mary collected the fixings into containers…

027

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s my portion…

030

 

 

 

 

 

Time to eat…

031

 

 

 

 

 

This 19-year-old Portuguese girl serves up $8 (each cup $4) worth of Budweiser beer…

033

 

 

 

 

 

Mary prefers the dark craft beers. She calls my Miller lite that I drink “horse piss”. This photo captures her with her “horse piss”…

035

 

 

 

 

 

Donna and her sexy sunglasses…

036

 

 

 

 

 

Some feast goers wear traditional hats. Medeira is an island off of the coast of Portugal where many of the early New Bedford fishermen came from…

039

 

 

 

 

 

A very young Portuguese girl…

042

 

 

 

 

 

044

 

 

 

 

 

Another style of hat…

045

 

 

 

 

 

We shared this spicy bean dish…

049

 

 

 

 

 

053

 

 

 

 

 

054

 

 

 

 

 

Mary telling me how much fun she is having…

060

 

 

 

 

 

061

 

 

 

 

 

After our meal we wandered around a bit. None of us rode the rides…

062

 

 

 

 

 

063

 

 

 

 

 

064

 

 

 

 

 

I love photographing reflections…

066

 

 

 

 

 

067

 

 

 

 

 

068

 

 

 

 

 

Instead of dealing in cash to buy things, you buy a ticket for $1 each. A beer is four tickets…

071

 

 

 

 

 

072

 

 

 

 

 

I wandered through a nearby museum…

085

 

 

 

 

 

We arrived early at the entertainment area to have front row seats…

086

 

 

 

 

 

Mary enjoys her 3 ticket Madeira Wine. For that price for so little amount…I hope it was good…

087

 

 

 

 

 

A young Portuguese boy came by to light the candle at our table…

088

 

 

 

 

 

Finally the entertainment started…

Savannah, Tennessee Day 2 (GA477)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I’m scheduled to depart October 17th.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted May 1, 2013…

The motorhome is parked at Moose Lodge #1918 in Savannah, Tennessee. We expect to move on later this morning.

 

 

Yesterday I drove the Bronco the about two miles to downtown Savannah. Our first stop of the day was at the Tennessee River Museum. You can read all about this museum by clicking their official website link…
http://www.tennesseerivermuseum.org/

 

 

The museum presents the river’s history from the beginning of time. Being a photographer, I particularly enjoyed the old black and white photos of the riverboats. Most museums simply show the photos…this museum actually tells you about the photograph you are viewing.

 

 

Here are some of the photos I took yesterday…

Crossing the street we headed for an art gallery. Savannah is a very clean and pleasant place…

047

 

 

 

 

 

The art gallery was closed, so we decided to cross the street again and check out the Hardin County Courthouse. It has a beautiful marble circular staircase. If you are a regular follower of my Blog, you know I love to photograph these things capturing patterns, forms, shapes, shadows, etc…

Our waitress was an experienced and helpful Carline Guthrie who has worked there for 15 years…

She helped me to decide on the 1/2 smoked chicken and the fried potato skins covered with two cheeses and real bacon bits. Very tasty indeed…

Since we had learned so much about the Tennessee River, we decided to get a closer look and drove to the nearby Riverside Park. This first photo is of the bridge we crossed over with the motorhome on U.S. Highway 64. The river is currently very high at about flood stage and is expected to crest in the next couple of days flooding low-lying roads…

Another delightful day. Other than the fact that it was, once again, too hot and humid as testified by this photo taken at 8:00 PM when it was still 83 degrees…with lots of humidity…

Enjoying interesting places and museums is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

No Annual Eagles Salmon BBQ This Year – :( – Anacortes, Washington

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in La Connor, Washington. I’ll depart here August 30th. I’ve been here a number of times in past years.

 

I’ll be hanging out in this general area until about the beginning of October, taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.

 

(Note: I’m currently a little discombobulated right now. My normal mode is to blog what I experienced yesterday. Right now, I’m a number of blogs behind my experiences. I expect to be back in my normal mode in about a month.)

 

 

Today’s subject…

 

It’s the third weekend of August and USUALLY that means it’s time for the annual Eagles Salmon BBQ in Anacortes, Washington. But, not this year!  😦

 

I’ve attended this event a number of times in past years and every year look forward to this wonderful culinary treat! Sadly, this year a sign on the wall is indicating due to the unusual high price of salmon this year, the event was cancelled. Locals tell me this year has been a very poor salmon season. So, instead of enjoying the delicious salmon BBQ this year, I can only fondly remember last year and hope it will return next year.

 

To read last year’s posting of this event, click this link…

If you didn’t bother to click the link to see last year’s event, the below two photos show what I’m missing this weekend…

Eagles Club BBQ Fundraiser – Anacortes, Washington

The motorhome is parked the Thousand Trails RV Resort located in La Conner, Washington. I’ve been here several times in past years. My membership allows a maximum of a three-week stay, out for one-week and then you can return to the first park. My departure date is September 2nd.

I’m just hanging out taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.

Mary’s personal to-do list plate, which can only be handled by herself, continues to over-flow. Recently we acknowledged that her meeting up with me in September, just is not going to happen.   😦

I’ll next likely see her when I arrive at her home in November. A friend recently expressed a concern about the status of our relationship. Not to worry…it continues to function per our original agreement when we met in October, 2008. That is…I remain on the road and she will join me when her other life allows. We talk every day on the phone…sometimes more than once. It’s just the way life is!

It’s the third weekend in August and that means it’s time for the annual BBQ fundraiser in Anacortes, Washington…only 12 miles from the campground. Here are some photos I took in 2014 when Mary was with me. Yesterday I went alone, but the salmon was just as good as the several times that I’ve attended this function in past years…

Eagles Club BBQ Fundraiser – Anacortes, Washington

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort at La Conner, Washington where I recently spent three weeks. Our departure from here is scheduled for August 19th.

Yesterday Mary and I went to Anacortes, Washington about 12 miles distant. Among the things we did was to attend the Eagles Club BBQ Fundraiser. We had some great salmon. Here are a few of the photos that I took…

The Eagles Club has been there since 1923. The BBQ Fundraiser is held the third weekend of August. The people are so friendly here that I elected to move my membership to this club.

Recently I had a telephone conversation with the VA Hospital at Palo Alto California regarding my cataract surgery. Pre-operation examination and consultation is set for September 29th…surgery on October 9th.

Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny at 68 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy/sunny and 69 degrees.

Portuguese Feast – New Bedford, Massachusetts – Day 2

Jim says:

Weather-wise, yesterday was the nicest day we’ve experienced in quite a while…maybe since we arrived in New England just before Memorial Day. Partly cloudy, 77 degrees, relatively low humidity and a gentle breeze…a most pleasant day!

We arrived at 4:30 PM. First activity of the day was the carne de espeto…meat on a spit…a community BBQ…kinda sorta.

Here’s cousin Bob, a Portuguese Feast veteran of 50 years with his skewer ready to go…

Picture

Here’s Mary turning our skewer…
