Good Bye Cooperstown

We spent 2 days visiting Cooperstown. We had grand time visiting Sharon Springs, along with the Hall of Fame, and the Fenimore Art Museum.  Just one more stop before we call it a day. The Farmer’s Museum founded in 1944 has a working farm, historic village and the Empire State Carousel. Of course we needed to…

The Coopers Hawk Has Something To Say

While I am enjoying the over abundance of pictures from a three week vacation and trying to remember exactly why I took them and where I was, I had to take a short side trip right in my own backyard. It’s funny the things you miss while you’re gone and also those things that you…

Sharon Springs, New York

Every city has its own keen personality. In less than 2 full days we got a sense of history and tradition in Boston. What makes a city tick? Could it be their sports?  You can’t argue that Boston has great fans following the Red Sox, Celtics, Patroits and Bruins. Maybe you want to explore the…

Sights in Boston

Every city has their historic sites, in Boston, they seem to be on every corner. What better way to see the city than on a 2 hour trolly tour. Then you can let your feet do the walking around some of the key places. Let’s start with the architecture of the beautiful cable-stayed Bunker Hill Memorial…

The Parker House in Boston

The adventure with my 3 friends started in Boston, known by the non-Bostonians as Beantown.  The nickname relates to the Boston Baked Beans with molasses, which gives the beans their unique flavor. We stayed at the Parker House Hotel. (Now owned by the Omni chain) The original hotel was built in 1855. Many famous people are…
