Cider, Antiques and Cheese-To-Share…

One of my favorite Early Fall/Late September traditions is visiting one or more of the multiple Autumn/Harvest Festivals we have around various towns and counties in New England. There’s something really fun about meeting and supporting local vendors, artists, etc. and I often walk away having discovered really great products, food, gifts, so on and […]

Local Loves: Captain T’s

Is it truly Summer in New England if I haven’t had some fried clam strips?

Clambaked…

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been down by the Cape, where community clambakes can be a pretty common event throughout the Summertime.

Hurricane season takes up a significant amount of the year, […]

A Month to Remember: August 2021

I don’t think anyone is more excited and ready for the beginning of the Fall than I am. Growing up in New England, it’s always been my favorite season for a variety of reasons I’m sure I’ve detailed at length on this blog in the past- the scenery, the smells and tastes (apple everything and […]

Reunion at the Farm…

One of the biggest and most important silver linings to my post-vaccination status- even as we continue to struggle through this pandemic and it’s variants as a Nation- is being able to reunite with friends who have also been vaccinated and who I haven’t seen in a very, very long time. Case in point- this […]
