North Dartmouth, Massachusetts Day 4 (GA567)

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 2, 2013…

 

 

 

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…

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!

Glass Museum – New Bedford, Massachusetts

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I’ve been here a number of times before, so I’ve thoroughly seen all of the local tourist attractions. So, now I’m just hanging out enjoying the nice weather.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. The construction of Mary’s rental continues delay plagued. She now is hoping to rejoin me by early September.  😦

A more relaxed mode…

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, I have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months I will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless I do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

Today’s Subject…Glass Museum – New Bedford, Massachusetts…

Cape Cod – Day 8

Jim says:

Yesterday I took Mary on the most scenic bike trail in the United States…that I am aware of.

The Cape Cod Bike Trail (south side) is 6.5 miles long, mostly flat and runs along side of the Cape Cod Canal. It was a beautiful sunny morning in the low 70’s, with relatively low humidity and a great breeze to keep us cool despite the pedaling. We went the entire distance and then doubled back for a total of 13 miles. With several stops to enjoy the beautiful scenery, we took about 2.5 hours to complete the very enjoyable ride.

Here’s an informational website link…

After the bike ride we went to the nearby Sandwich (name of the town in which it is located) Glass Museum. I wasn’t initially excited about going there (I mean, how exciting can glass be?)…but Mary really wanted to go…so I went with her.

I was pleasantly surprised as to the several thousands of pieces of exhibits. it hard to describe the scope and craftsmanship that went into these pieces.

The most pleasant surprise was doing abstract-style photography that I have not done in many years. Years ago I had an expensive camera and several lenses and was quite serious about my photography…which…by the way…is a lot of hard work. But once I retired in 1995, I no longer wanted to work that hard at photography…so I sold all my expensive equipment. For the most part all my photography since then has been of scenery and people…all a lot of fun…but not terribly skill-challenging.

With my limited digital camera set as always to the lowest pixel setting and an uncontrolled setting, I actually did some abstract-style photography in the glass museum.
I was pleasantly surprised how nice the 43 photos turned out. So much so, that I’ve decided they deserve to be show-cased on their own. So if you want to see them, you have to tune into tomorrow’s blog entry. To entice you to do so, here’s just one of the 43 photos you’ll see tomorrow…
