Reflections on Northeast travel

In a little more than a week, I turn 52. Birthdays are a good time to reflect on what we've done and our observations, Today I'm going to remember places that I've seen in the Northeast.

Maine: I just love it. We've traveled from the New Hampshire boarder up the coast to Lubeck. I love the little coffee house. The lobster rolls that you can get as easily as a Hostess Twinkie (and much better). Most of all the lighthouses. Whether it's Nubell, West Quoddy, Portland Head, etc... they all have their own personalities and make you feel like you're in an Edward Hopper painting.

New Hampshire: I love Portsmouth. It's where Teddy Roosevelt met with the Russians and the Japanese to end their war.

Massachusetts: If someone told me that I had to leave NY, I'd move here.
The beauty of Cape Cod and Cape Ann. The trees in the Berkshires. And Boston, my second favorite city.

Vermont: Nothing compares to the colors of a Vermont Autumn.

Rhode Island: Newport has the oldest temple in America. It also happens to be the only Temple that I belong to.

Connecticut. My home away from home.

New York: It's home. It's Central Park. It's Cooperstown. It's the sunsets behind the skyscrapers. I'll visit elsewhere, but I'll live in NY.

New Jersey: "The curtain rises on a vast primitive wasteland, not unlike certain parts of New jersey." - Woody Allen

Lovely! I think it is important to appreciate where we live! I love New England too and Manhattan, Boston, and Central Park. I, too, love lobster rolls found easily as Twinkies, and the drive from Boston up into Maine and the boat ride to Monhegan Island. Oh, I love Nantucket, too. Oh, Oh, Oh!!

we went to Nantucket last summer. We got this great tour guide (originally from Queens) who with dog, wove in and out of the narrow streets, showing us the New England charm. It was wonderful.

I was there the summer before this with my brother and his family. They rented a house with a pool and it was great!!

We lived in CT for 24 years, 5 in two places in Danbury, 19 in New Fairfield (next town north of Danbury (and the Danbury FCI).

But the wasteland Woody was referring to is Passaic, NJ - or maybe the refineries south of Newark Airport!

I should never comment negatively about NJ, having lived 4 years in Bridgeport, Ct.

On your birthday, check under your birthday tree. I bought CT from Joe Lieberman and wrapped it up for you. Merry Birth!

Would you mind if I returned Bridgeport?

Not at all, but be aware that Lieberman said proceeds will be dedicated to the Sarah Palin Bust Fund.
