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

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…

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…

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!

 

 

Enjoying visiting with relatives and friends is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Nicolaus To Anderson, California

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

Most of yesterday’s travel was on U.S. Highway 99 which passes through miles of fruit orchards…much better than the alternate of Interstate Highway 5…

Approaching Anderson I spotted Mount Shasta 65 miles away. I grabbed my camera and manged to get this neat shot even though I was driving…

Arriving at Anderson, California I parked at the rear of very friendly VFW Post#9650 for the night. I’ve been stopping here for several years. They even provided me with a 30 amp electrical hookup so I could run my air conditioner to deal with the 85 degree temperature. Many thanks for another enjoyable stay…

Outside it was 85 in the shade and 94.2 in the sun. It was a comfortable 78 degrees inside the motorhome as I watch the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Yankees 5-4.

 

I’ll depart later this morning.

 

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

 

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Bostons Pizza Deli – Bremerton, 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 Mount Vernon RV Resort in Bow, Washington. I’ll depart here August 9th. 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…

A couple of weeks ago I was in Bremerton, Washington. I had just finished a pleasant walk along the waterfront. It was about 1PM and I was feeling hungry when I stumbled upon Bostons Pizza & Deli. Hmmmmmmmmmm, I wondered, could it be?

 

I spent the first 40 years of my life not all that far from Boston. I remain a quasi Boston Red Sox fan since my now 18-year-old grandson Eric has had four showcases (show your stuff) with the Boston Red Sox. The Boston Red Sox play in the 104 year old Fenway Park. I went there a number of times as a youngster.

 

Anyways, back to my question. Ask any transplanted person from the east coast and they will all tell you the same thing… You cannot find a good pizza on the west coast!

 

I just had to go in to inquire. The clerk told me the owner (not currently there) grew up in Boston and was an avid fan and hence the decor of the place. Asking if he brought the Boston recipe  for the pizza with him, the clerk replied… There’s only one way to find out!

 

After giving it the taste test, Yup! It would have been better had my one slice come directly from the oven instead of sitting under a heat lamp. Sure beats the heck out of all the franchise pizza places on the west coast!

 

The below photos show the decor of the place…
