New England 2006 »

[17 Apr 2006 | 2 Comments | ]

Hi guys, not much to report. We had a pretty quiet weekend, chilling out and doing some shopping.
We’ve done loads of shopping. Think we bought the USA’s entire supply of cds and designer clothing!! We went to Lake Winnipesaukee today. That is a really big lake with an even bigger name! We’ve had our fair share of dealings with plumbers too. Trust me, you don’t want the details… apologies to Kevin – who deserved to be tipped!! There is actually a plumber in our room right now!
We went to the …

Man it’s late

Hey guys, it’s time to make up for the lack of pictures, here are a load with brief descriptions below each one:

This is Mount Washington. It is a mountain.

This is Robyn at the waterfall near the bridge where I fell over

This is me at the waterfall where I fell over

This is me winning one of the 10 (yes I miscounted before) stuffed animals that will soon double of gifts for you all.

This is me holding them all. Duh.
I also added some more video footage! Whoo! Here are the latest escapades …

Hi everyone, sorry we haven’t written in a couple of days, we’re still here! No pictures at the mo I’m afraid, we’ve having trouble with the laptops so we’re using the hotel’s computer. But we have loads to tell you. I’ll tell you what I can remember and then Robyn will fill in the blanks.
First of all, we went to the memorial at the same congregation we went to on Tuesday, in Lyndonville. Everyone was so nice, and they want us to come back and visit. …

Good morning!

Just a quick little post this morning. We have had lots of requests (well actually just Robyn’s mum) for pictures of the car we are travelling in, due to its being magical and all. And we are not people who disappoint so:

Ta da! Pretty amazing huh? There’s tons of legroom and the seats are like reclinable armchairs. I could live in this car.
If anybody has any other requests for pictures or anything, we can post them. Even if the pictures don’t exist, we’ll make them up.
On a side …

Hello again. We don’t have any pictures to share with you all at the moment, we’ve not done very much today. We saw some more lakes and mountains, but after a while they get a bit samey.
We saw a Kingdom Hall today. Well actually we saw 2 but we had planned the second one cos we’re going to their meeting tonight and their memorial tomorrow (aren’t we good?). But so far this holiday we’ve seen 4 halls. One in Niagara, one in the Adirondacks and …

Greetings from Vermont

Yes, we are finally in New England. I can’t make a long post tonight cos Dad wants the computer back to watch a DVD.
We went to Ben and Jerry’s today, that was the highlight, so here are some pictures:

Also, I realise I mixed up one of the videos on youtube. If you are clever enough to notice well done. I don’t have time to sort it out now, maybe tomorrow.
Um, that’s all I have time for. Thanks for all your comments, especially Julie and Shaz, our devoted fans. Speak …

Still in NY state (we’re going to New England I swear)

Hi there, I told you I would be back. Today has been great, we drove thru the Adirondaks and saw some amazing lakes. Some of them were even frozen over which we weren’t expecting so that was a nice surprise. I’m telling you, they were beautiful. But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself:

There were of course lakes that weren’t frozen, and they were equally amazing:

Also, I had chance today to upload some video footage of me and Robyn. You can view them thanks to youtube, …

Greetings from NY state!

Hi everyone, sorry I didn’t get chance to post anything yesterday, it was a looooong day and the internet didn’t really work in the hotel we were in. I don’t actually have time now to write a huge entry cos everyone is in bed and I don’t want to wake them with typing.
So highlights, today we went to Niagara, it was the second time for all of us, but it was still amazing, very cold tho. I will post some pics if I can, dunno if it will take ages …

12 hours until the flight that is. We leave for the airport at 7am tomorrow. All our goodbyes have been said, are bags are packed, and all that’s left is a good nights sleep. Yeah right. I won’t sleep until everything I know I’ve forgotten has been remembered. And I don’t even remember half the things I know I’ve forgotten. Ooh and my Dad just handed me my US Dollars. My favourite is the one with President Franklin on it. That’s $100 …

Not much to report today, Robyn and I started packing, and if it’s possible we’re even more giddy than we were yesterday. I’ve been showing everyone my 1968 Mustang. It is my proudest possession.
Oh we also watched Red Eye tonight. I don’t recommend it when you’re going to be flying in 2 days time. At least I know the person sitting next to me on the plane isn’t evil. Or is she?… Now I’m just scared.
Tomorrow there’ll be only one more day to go! Yippee!
