Roadtrip: A Bulldog, a Motorcycle and a Diner

It has been two years since I visited the USA. There is nothing like hitting home territory again. It starts when I leave JFK airport in New York, inching up thru the traffic in Queens, passing the enormous globe from the old World's Fair site and Citi Field Stadium, (home to the Mets baseball team) and then onto the leafy highways of Connecticut. 

Once settled we dawned our big white bibs and tucked into a delicious meal of  lobster and shrimp alongside freshly steamed corn on the cob. We cracked, we split, we nipped and enjoyed every last bite, just the way New England lobster should be eaten. All this followed by a tray of several different flavours of local ice cream. It was all so familiar and it was a great feeling. Family around the table, enjoying a meal and catching up on all the latest news. We all tottled off to bed happy for the opportunity to be together again.

Miss Claire and I started our two week road trip today. We farewelled child #4, Connor, and his grandmother and went on our merry way. We are off to visit ten colleges across six states along the East Coast. First stop Pennsylvania.  Claire was my co-pilot, taking photographs along the way. We had fun and decided to post our favourite photos from each day of our trip.

Without further adieu...I would like to introduce our favourite pics of the day.


For the love of Mack....


It's all in the ride....



A New Jersey moment...



As humble as apple pie..


A college campus quad in reflection...


While I was taking in the serenity of the campus on a Sunday evening, Claire was still thinking about the football team she glanced upon during a practice session. I can see I will have my work cut our for me with this one. :)

Best wishes to one and all for a fabulous week!
