New England Trip (Part 5)

(12/12/09) - It's taken a while but here we go with more of our New England excursion. On this part of the trip, we leave Boston for Cape Cod and then north to Maine and New Hampshire.

This has to be one of the most eerie, but most beautiful pictures I've ever taken.  As we're about to leave Boston Harbor, a dense fog was breaking and a huge cruise ship was coming into port (look to the right in the distance).

Aboard the catamaran, we leave Boston Harbor and head south into Massachusetts Bay.

About 90 minutes later, we dock at Provincetown, Mass. under a thick fog.

Just outside of Provincetown, we take a tour of the sand dunes of Cape Cod.

Here is our tour group along with the sand dune guides.

Back in Provincetown, it's time for a break for ice cream!

Up the road from Provincetown is Plymouth Rock where the Pilgrims landed in 1620.  The famous Plymouth Rock is located in the columned monument.

Looking up at the mast of the "Mayflower II" replica.

This is the "Mayflower II", an exact replica of the original Mayflower.

This is the National Monument of Forefathers, also at Plymouth.

Back at our hotel in Charlestown, Mass. we overlook the Charles River looking at the Boston skyline.

From Boston, we head north to Gloucester and the Fisherman's Memorial.

This is beautiful Rockport, Massachusetts.

It almost looks surreal.  This is a lighthouse at Cape Neddick, Maine.  Simply unbelieveable!

Our tour group was ready for some authentic...and very fresh Maine lobster in Ogunquit.

I got up one morning before the sunrise in Ogunquit, Maine.  The next set of snapshots have become my personal favorites.  I have never experienced air so clean, crisp and invigorating - or a sight more beautiful than capturing this sunrise sequence.

The sun is almost up.

Pure perfection...painted by God.

In Part 6, we leave Maine for New Hampshire and see the beautiful fall colors along the Kancamagus Highway and into the White Mountains.

TRIP ALERT!  Be watching in January for the announcement of our next big adventure.  Here's a hint...our 2010 trip will involve planes, trains and cable cars!  You will not believe where we're going next - and you can come along!  Stay tuned to find out more.

    I grew up in NH...spent many summer days on the coast of Maine. I am glad you got to see Nubble Light, lots of fond memories for me, climbing the rocks, turning them over to find starfish and baby crabs!!! We lived in KY for 17 yrs and got the call of the 'sea' again and moved to the gulf coast...thanks for sharing your trip!!

    We just got back from a week trip, including a stop in Gloucester, Mass. It is an entirely different "world" up there! We are planning to go back very soon!
