Mission Liberia 2012

Sep 27, 2010 - Start-New Haven, CT

We arrived in New Haven and started our visit downtown. New Haven is on the New Haven Harbor in Middlesex County. New Haven is the first city in the United States to have the streets built along a square grid, so it was easy to find our way around downtown. We went to Pepe’s for lunch and had some of their world famous pizza, which they call apizza in New Haven. I had the white pizza which didn’t have any tomato sauce on it. After lunch we drove by Yale University, where President Clinton went to school. Afterwards we visited the Eli...

NEW HAVEN Travel Tips are bolded Our first stop was in New Haven, home of Yale University, with George W. Bush being one of its most illustrious alumni’s. One day there is enough to tour the University. If you plan ahead, you can even have a tour given by a resident student. Check Yale University’s website for details and reservations. If you stay overnight, the Marriott is an excellent place to stay as it is right on the edge of the campus so you can park your car and leave it there while you explore the campus on foot.

New England 2009

Jul 24, 2009 - Connecticut

We woke up to a heavy rain today. I guess it’s time to leave for a new destination! We said goodbye to Richard, Amy, Jacob & Jimmy today and headed south to Connecticut. It rained most of the drive. At one point in Maine the outside temperature was 55 degrees! In July! The middle of SUMMER!!! I’m not sure I’d want to be here in the winter! I have decided my favorite feature of our RV is the washer & dryer! With all the tide pooling, the rainy weather, and having a boy, it has come in very handy on this trip! We didn’t pull into the...

Jul 20, 2009 - A visit to Yale University

It took all day for the work to be done. And so we rented a car and went to New Haven to see the sights. The first stop was ivy league university, Yale. At the visitor's center where our tour began we saw the mascot for Yale (the bulldog). There he was - stuffed just like a fish or a moose. I'm not sure I liked that. Sebastian, a junior at Yale, gave us a great tour. And yes, there was ivy all around. We walked to the oldest part of the campus and stopped at a statue of a man named Nathan Hale. It turns out he was America's first spy....

Jul 23, 2008 - New Haven, CT

On Wednesday we moved further west in Connecticut to Thomaston, which provided a central point for visiting New Haven, Hartford and Litchfield. After settling into our campsite and resting for a short time (Mark is still recovering from his summer cold and I pulled some muscles which are making it difficult for me to sleep well) we scurried over to New Haven for a quick visit to Yale University. Now here was an Ivy League school whose beautiful, old, gothic buildings made it worthy of its inclusion in this prestigious group of schools. The...

Jul 7, 2008 - New Haven, Connecticut

Today was an adventure which all started in the morning when Dad tried to drive under a low train overpass. Our RV being very tall would not fit, so we had to drive into a parking lot to turn around. When Dad couldn't make the turn in the parking lot we found out that we were stuck in the way of the Fire Dept. at their station. So we had to unhitch the Honda from the RV and turn everything around. After all that we finally made it out alive after trying many street and country roads making sure we didn't find anymore low bridges. Driving to...

Jun 7, 2008 - Gardens and Friends

After a very restful night in our cozy home, it’s time to attack the gardens. David gets his blower and begins to remove the layers of leaves from the gardens. I work carefully around our irises and other perennials. David will continue to work on the gardens while I’m gone to NY. At noon it was time to get cleaned up and head to Jeremy’s home to pick up Amber for our NY adventure. After we played with Alex for a bit we loaded Amber into the car and headed to New Haven. We stayed at our friend’s home, John and Reen, who live near the train...

Jun 28, 2007 - The first two days

Wednesday June 27, 2007 The alarm went off at 3 am this morning. I went to bed about 11 last night, but couldn't fall asleep right away. OMG...am I going to attempt to drive on four hours of sleep...yep. I finished packing up the rest of the car, consciously aware of my surroundings. Someone was mugged right outside my door two weeks ago. At 4 am, there was no one around if I needed help. New Haven is dead at 4 am. There wasn't a car in sight. I stopped at Dunken Dounuts to pick up a bagel, and then I headed for I-95. I felt like I was...

Summer Travel 2007

Sep 29, 2006 - Dale's House, Middletown, Connecticut

We drove to Dale's house today. Dave and Christa got their motorhome fixed and they are heading for home so we parted ways somewhere in Massachusettes. We turned south to go to Connecticut and they kept going west. It was fun being with friends for awhile and we'll miss them. We are able to park next to Dale's house and plug into electric. His neighbor downstairs in the duplex has wireless and she said we can connect to her system so that is lucky for us. We'll have internet while here.
