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 5, 2013…

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at my cousin Bob’s and his wife Donna’s home at North Dartmouth, Massachusetts. We are planning to depart tomorrow.

 

 

Yesterday was a somewhat decent day. With a light cloud cover the high temperature was 79 degrees with 63% humidity. Still too humid for my liking.

 

 

Yesterday we drove the Bronco the about five miles to New Bedford. Our first stop was Saint Anthony’s of Padua Church where my mother and father were married in 1938. I wanted Mary to see this beautiful structure built 101 years ago. It’s spire is 256 feet…making it the tallest in New England.

 

 

You can read all about this beautiful church by clicking this Wikipedia link… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Anthony_of_Padua_Church_%28New_Bedford,_Massachusetts%29

 

 

I really recommend you view these church photos in full screen!

Then we drove a couple of miles to downtown New Bedford and went to the New Bedford Art Museum which is rather small and does not allow photography…Boo on them!

 

 

 

 

 

In this part of Old New Bedford, a number of cobblestone streets are still in existence…

047

 

 

 

 

 

A couple of blocks away we arrived at the Old Star Store. Once New Bedford’s leading department store for many years, it apparently fell victim to today’s modern malls. My grandmother worked at the Star Store for many years as a saleslady in ladies clothing…

Today the old Star Store houses an extension of UMASS-Dartmouth and has a few old photos and paintings…

We visited New Bedford extensively during our visit here in 2010. You can see those Blog entries in our archives during the summer months. In the mid-1800’s, New Bedford was the most famous city in the world because of its whaling industry. It was known as the City That lit The World. You can read this history on the official government New Bedford Whaling National Historic Park which we visited in 2010… http://www.nps.gov/nebe/index.htm

Enjoying beautiful old buildings is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The motorhome is parked at 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 81 degrees with 79% humidity. Still too hot and humid for my liking.

 

 

My cousin Bob’s mother, and my aunt Yvonne…long deceased…had a fantastic talent. In addition to being a school teacher and a world traveler…she was a fantastic artist. I remember, as a youngster, being barely able to walk through her home because she had so many huge paintings. Here are four which are in Bob and Donna’s home…

When you visit Bob and Donna’s home…no one goes hungry! Yesterday we enjoyed a New England Feast!

 

 

 

 

 

We started with large shrimp and cheese and crackers…

Then we enjoyed a 1 1/4 pound lobster…

011

 

 

 

 

 

013

 

 

 

 

 

The lobster remains…

Then a New England Clam Boil. In this pot are clams, hot dogs, linguisa, sausage, potatoes, and onions…

This afternoon we will drive the about five miles to attend the 99th annual Feast of the Blessed Sacrament…the world’s largest Portuguese Feast! You can read all about it by clicking their official website link…

New Bedford remains a large fishing port and has always had a large Portuguese presence. You can read about this presence by clicking this link…

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…

005

 

 

 

 

 

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…

006

 

 

 

 

 

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…

009

 

 

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!

Yesterday was 84 degrees with humidity in the 70% range. Still too hot and humid for my liking.

 

 

Yesterday afternoon I drove the Bronco the about 65 miles to Logan Airport at Boston, Massachusetts. Mary has returned to me. It’s nice to have her back…

Today we will be visiting with long-time friends of mine in Revere, Massachusetts, so we stayed in a hotel here last night. I lived in Revere from the ages of 10-18. In the afternoon rush (?) hour drive, the 7.5 mile ride from the airport to the hotel only took one hour. I wonder why it’s called rush hour?  🙂

 

 

This afternoon we’ll head back to North Dartmouth.

 

 

Enjoying meeting up with old friends is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

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…

001

 

 

 

 

 

They have a great menu of fresh seafood…

004

 

 

 

 

 

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

The interior dining area. They also have an outside eating area…

Ivoryton, Connecticut – Day 1

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 100 miles from North Dartmouth, Massachusetts to Ivoryton, Connecticut. It’s parked at my son’s home.

Upon arrival yesterday, I could not get an Internet signal. After an hour on the telephone with Verizon technical support, they decided I had a bad SIM Card. So I drove the Bronco the about 10 miles to the local Verizon store. After about one hour there, I finally had an Internet signal. Back to the motorhome where once again…no Internet signal. Another hour on the phone with Verizon technical support to no avail…back to the Verizon store. Another hour and it was finally working once again. By time I got back to the motorhome it was 8:00 PM, but at least we now have an Internet signal. Computers are great when they work correctly, but when they don’t, they can be a real pain!

By then it was too dark to take my arrival photos. The first photo is of when I first arrived here in early June. Since I’m in the same exact position, it’s just like it would have been if I took it yesterday…

The usual dinette photo was also taken on my arrival here in early June. It wasn’t raining yesterday…

Enjoying family 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!

Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
