Good Morning Foodies! I thought I would take a few moments to give a little summary on the New England Boat Trip. If you ever get the chance to see the coast like this, by all means, do it. It is a most unique way to see these lovely places. You get to see a great deal of the local customs, life-styles, amazing ways to prepare food in different ways and just rub elbows with all the locals. I was sorry that we did not get a chance to spend more time at our last docking, the town of Newport, Rhode Island. It is quite charming. It appears to be larger than the towns of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Every place has its own unique attraction. No matter where we were, the people were so friendly and helpful. I think being away from the big-city, hustle-bustle tends to calm people down a bit.
So you know I have to share a little “funny” with you. When we were approaching the airport, I realized something that I have seen a hundred times and never paid much attention to it. When you are entering the airport to drop off your luggage, the sign says—“ATTENTION ENTRANCE IS TERMINAL!” YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF YOU ARE NOT TERMINAL, EXIT HERE QUICKLY!” Okay, that got my attention! Then, when you are preparing for take-off, you are listening and watching the stewardess give all the instructions for safety! The stewardess was explaining the proper way to put on the oxygen mask. I have always wondered about how you get children to keep that mask on. I really think the whole purpose of the mask is to muffle your screams!!!!!! So there is my take on airplane safety and adventure!
One of the most beautiful sights on this trip, was the sky! I have always found that there are three places where the stars shine the brightest—IN OPEN WATERS; IN THE DESERT; AND ON MOUNTAIN TOPS! Have you ever noticed that? PERHAPS, THEY ARE NOT REALLY STARS IN THE SKY, BUT RATHER OPENINGS WHERE OUR LOVED ONES SHINE DOWN TO LET US KNOW THEY ARE HAPPY! Now, I can live with that! Have a great weekend and be safe!
