Rochester, Massachusetts Day 2 (GA564)

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 July 29, 2013…

 

 

 

 

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…

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…

So, here’s my new camping spot…

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…

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…

008

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