New England


We love to travel and we love the west.  We have made many trips west of the Mississippi, so we thought we should go somewhere different this year.  We set out with a plan to see the New England states.



In 1993, I received a fellowship to do some research at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.  So we had seen beautiful Boston and Cape Cod, but nothing else in the Northeast.


One item on our bucket list is visiting all the states, and we wanted to mark some off with this trip.


We went to Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia,  Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Kentucky. The ones in bold type are states we had not been to before.



It was all beautiful.


How many miles did we travel?  Good question.  Just for fun, post your guesses in the comment section below or on Facebook.  When I finish writing about the trip, whoever guesses the closest to the correct answer will get a $15 iTunes card.  You can guess once every day that I write about the trip.  Watch for hints, but be aware that we are not known for traveling the most direct route.



I hope you enjoy the trip as much as we did!
