Van Cortland Manor; Croton-On-Hudson, NY

In the early 1600's, the Van Cortland family owned 85,000 acres of prime Hudson Valley real estate. Stretching from what is now the Hudson River to Connecticut and the tip of New York City to the northern counties, this Dutch merchant was ancestor to future Van Cortlands who would build a manor...

Chatham, MA

Sitting at the elbow of the weight-lifting arm shaped Cape Cod, Chatham captures some of the most magnificent light as the sun rises and sets, turning the beaches, harbor islands (not much more than sand and brush) and protected coves into an ever-changing montage of color. I was lucky enough to... Sign in to see full entry.

Rhinebeck Aerodrome

Back in the 1920’s, teams of pilots would land near barns on rural farms and request to use fields as runways from which to stage air shows and offer plane rides. Known as “Barnstormers” – these stuntmen would draw townsfolk to their performances, ever perfecting the spins,dives and barrel rolls... Sign in to see full entry.

A Clip from the Hudson Sloop Clearwater

Here's Pete Seeger (90) on his brainchild, the Sloop Clearwater during the Clearwater Festival. I was on the previous sailing when it was pouring, but this gives you an idea. Such fun. And hoisting the sails is a great working and bonding experience. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyqeULM9p54 Sign in to see full entry.

Stony Creek, CT and Linden Point House B&B

I'm writing this from the dock of the Linden House B&B - the only luxury bed and breakfast directly on the water on the southern/mid Connecticut Coast. Overlooking a series of pink granite islands called The Thimbles, this place is indescribably beautiful. Owners Joel (photographer) and Hannah... Sign in to see full entry.

1609 was a busy year for explorers

I realize that I haven't been writing in this section for awhile. I couldn't exactly document my Hong Kong trip in a New England Travel blog, and I've just been waiting to actually start traveling again for assigned stories. I'm hoping to begin again next week, after I bid Ben bon-voyage on Wed. As... Sign in to see full entry.

Windham, NY

I just noticed that I haven't paid much attention to this category; mostly because I've been writing up the places I've traveled to for various pubs. Here's one of my latest and my lazy way out of writing any more in this space today!!... Sign in to see full entry.

Harvard Square

Big bucks are not required to stay in the midst of this old University town. Last night, I paid $80 for a tiny, twin bed/shared bath room - right across from Harvard Yard at the Irving House Guest House. For that eighty bucks, I get the room, of course, PLUS breakfast and snacks till 10pm, free... Sign in to see full entry.

Inn By the Sea, Cape Elizabeth, ME

I'm writing this from my 2nd floor perch in a one bedroom "Spa-Suite" at Inn by the Sea. An icy, heavy rain partially obscures my view of an angry Atlantic Ocean. But I see some intrepid lobster boats riding out the fierce gray waves. There's a king bed, flat screen TV and bath up here. Downstairs,... Sign in to see full entry.

Woodstock, VT

Writing here from Farmhouse Inn in Woodstock, VT; a charming artsy town about 15 minutes from major Eastersn ski resorts like Killington and Okemo. This beautiful, comfy farmhouse used to be the Robinson's Farm, and that's how it will be forever known. About 2 years ago, a couple from CA bought it... Sign in to see full entry.
