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…

074

 

 

 

 

 

075

 

 

 

 

 

076

 

 

 

 

 

078

 

 

 

 

 

080

 

 

 

 

 

081

 

 

 

 

 

082

 

 

 

 

 

083

 

 

 

 

 

084

 

 

 

 

 

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…

090

 

 

 

 

 

093

 

 

 

 

 

097

 

 

 

 

 

098

I made some videos to give you a flavor of the entertainment. You can see them by clicking the below links…

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…

001

 

 

 

 

 

Then we enjoyed a 1 1/4 pound lobster…

011

 

 

 

 

 

013

 

 

 

 

 

The lobster remains…

014

 

 

 

 

 

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

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…

007

 

 

 

 

 

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

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

The motorhome is parked at the Gateway to Cape Cod Campground, at Rochester, Massachusetts. This campground is part of the Thousand Trails RV Resorts system of which Mary and I are members.

 

 

This location marks the furthest point east the motorhome will travel during my 2011-2013 two-year circumnavigation of the United States. Mary and I thoroughly visited Cape Cod in 2010. I plan to depart here later today.

 

 

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

 

 

Yesterday was another lousy weather day. Gray, cloudy, overcast, spotty rain showers and the humidity stayed above 95% all day! With the horrible humidity, I’ve had the A/C running 24/7.

 

 

I took a few photos on my early morning walk yesterday…

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 July 28, 2013…

 

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 25 miles from East Bridgewater to Rochester, Massachusetts to the Gateway to Cape Cod Campground. This campground is part of the Thousand Trails RV Resort system of which Mary and I are members.

 

 

This location marks the furthest point east the motorhome will travel during my 2011-2013 two-year circumnavigation of the United States. Mary and I thoroughly visited Cape Cod in 2010. I plan to depart here tomorrow.

Mary is back at  her home in California tending to some personal business. She has made her plane reservations and will fly to meet me in Boston, Massachusetts next Tuesday.

 

 

The weather continues lousy in New England. While the high temperatures have dissipated for the moment…the horrible humidity remains. This morning at 5:30 AM it was 90%, It’s raining right now with more on the way/ YUK!

Regarding yesterday’s Full-Time RVing Seminar… Camping USA told me they have not held a seminar in mid-summer before. Because most folks were out RVing we only had 18 attending…

My cousin Mike took the above photo with my camera. My cousin Suzie who I have not seen for many years even made it with her husband, Lenny. My camera some how accidentally got in the watercolor mode…sorry about the harsh colors…

Despite the smaller turnout folks seemed to really enjoy it. I got this nice comment from my cousin Mike…

 

 

Thanks a lot for a very informative seminar. Nice to have an experienced RV’er with your 49 years of RV’ing, including 18 years as a full timer, offering advice. Well Done!! Happy Camping. Response was overwhelming for this seminar.
We will be talking about it for some time. Stay Safe!

 

 

 

 

 

Camping USA did a nice job washing the motorhome in the watercolor mode…

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