North Dartmouth, Massachusetts – Day 1

Yesterday I drove the motorhome about 25 miles from Rochester to North Dartmouth, Massachusetts. I expect to depart here in about one week.

Mary will fly in to meet me at Boston, Massachusetts this afternoon.

Yesterday was a semi-decent day. With a light cloud cover the high temperature was 81 degrees with 81% humidity. Finally a day without air conditioning. Still too hot and humid for my liking.

The motorhme is parked at the home of my cousin Bob and his wife, Donna..

Along the way here yesterday, I passed through the town of Fairhaven where I lived as a young child from ages 5-10. For it is here that you can get the best meal of Fish ‘n’ Chips in the whole world! At Gene’s Famous Seafood which has been here since 1963…

They have a great menu of fresh seafood…

There’s another big piece of fresh Cod fish under all those fries for only $8.95…

Enjoying Fish ‘n’ Chips at Gene’s in Fairhaven, Massachusetts is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer! YUM!

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

Portuguese Feast – New Bedford, Massachusetts – Day 3

Jim says…

Yesterday weather-wise was decent. Partly cloudy skies, 81 degrees and moderate humidity. It was also another long and fun-filled day.

First event of the day took us down to the state pier in New Bedford to see the once-upon-a-time Portuguese Cod-Fishing vessel…The Gazela. Gazela is living history…originally built in 1883…she is believed to be the oldest square-rigger in the United States still sailing. She is home-ported in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

This photo of Gazela was taken from a photo on the Gazela…

Next stop (not associated with the Portuguese Feast) was at Gene’s Famous Seafoods across the river in Fairhaven to indulge, one final time, in a meal of the world’s best Fish & Chips! Mary had the clam chowder.

Then to the final event of the Portuguese Feast (for us)…the parade.

Here Mary anxiously awaits the parade…

Here are four other photos from the parade…

And finally, a portrait shot of Mike’s Boston Terrier Vinnie who is a boundless ball of energy and kept us amused during our visit.
