Road trip posts interrupted…

Well, I made it home before I finished writing our adventures.  And as soon as we walked in the door, the phone started ringing!  Even though we worked during the trip, there is still a mountain of stuff to do. But I predict the Day 30 post will be published on the evening of Nov. […]

  Hold on to your hats!  I now have TWO new ones… another baseball cap and a PITH helmet!! Today, I crossed into the realm of awesomeness… I am now a card carrying member of THE WORLD EXPLORERS Club!

Taunton There are some gorgeous buildings here.  Last night, while searching for food, we were astounded to see jaw-dropping architecture through the haze of pizza restaurants and Chinese food places.  This town really loves pizza and Chinese food.  Anyway, this morning we drove through town, taking photos of buildings, churches and street signs and we ran […]

“And I thought the elevator smelled bad on the outside!*” said J as we stepped into the elevator and discovered a mysteriously disgusting event on the floor.  Today was a disaster.  It took 5 solid hours to try to find a hotel room.  We called Inns in Innsmouth, Innsburg, Inns Harbour, and Inns-R-Us, but to no […]
