Boston Common and the Public Garden. The rose was given to us by two of the Public Gardeners after we helped one of them find her mobile phone, which she'd dropped in the rose bed.
The first ironworks in the USA. It was a commercial failure but seeded the industry. The buildings are post-war reproductions.
The shots after the first are from the New Hampshire welcome centre in Seabrook. I found it ironic that a “welcome centre” would have so many signs telling you what you're not allowed to do...
The beer is four quarter-pints and the one at the front is Sea Dog Brewing Company's Blue Paw, a blueberry wheat beer that is, basically, a blueberry muffin in a glass.
Still to come: Acadia National Park.
The Connecticut State Capitol and its environs in Hartford.
The Rhode Island State House in Providence.
Night photography in an Atlantic fog.
Hartford, CT, and Providence, RI.
Most of these are of the National Monument to the Forefathers. Notice how many of the women on the Mayflower are described as “and wife”.
Birthplace of Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams. Pronounced KWIN-zee.
The blanket was supposed to keep the cats off the clean laundry underneath. Who'd have thought Cupid would want to be under it on such a hot day?
We tried to go to the zoo but the road was jammed solid because of an event at the baseball stadium next door. We aborted, had lunch and went to the Durham Museum, in the old Union Station, instead.
Wildlife on the lawn.
The city display was cancelled because of a bad weather forecast and there wasn't much else on offer...
... so we goofed around in the park with long exposures and LED torches.
Today's forecast was actually worse but turned out to be wrong.
The first four were taken using an office chair and a blanket as a mini-studio.
Second attempt at the zoo. This time, we made it.
The plane is by the Interstate between Lincoln and Omaha. The other three were taken on the way to dinner, which we had just across the state line in Iowa.
The principal ingredient of apricot sorbet...
Another evening in Omaha; another shot at that plane.
Goofing around with a cat and a wide-angle lens.
I-70 through Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri. Most of the shots (all but one) are taken from the former but (just over half) show the latter.
We stopped here on a whim, having seen ads by the road. Access is via an incredibly steep road and, on the way back up, we discovered that the Subaru's fuel economy display bottoms out at 1.5mpg. I wouldn't be at all surprised if we were in gallons-per-mile territory.
In 1995, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City was blown up by a truck bomb, with the loss of 168 lives. The site is now a memorial garden. The Gates of Time display the time one minute before and after the bombing. Each chair in the Field of Chairs represents a victim of the bombing, arranged in rows according to the floor of the building the person was on. The children who died in the daycare centre have smaller chairs. The chairs correspond to the empty chairs at family dining tables.
We arrived rather late at our hotel in Guthrie so we stopped for a drive-through burger before checking in. While we were eating, a huge locusty-grasshopper thing flew in through Kita's open window and landed on our ice-cream. We were surprised. (And more concerned with ejecting it than with producing a photographic record of its exploits.)
I should point out that the last one was taken through a telephoto lens so we weren't quite so close to doom as it might appear.
Site of the Eisenhower Presidential Library. Also site of Kuntz's drive-in. And, yes, we drove around the block an extra time to get the photo.
With a brief stop in Marysville, KS, so Lobstah could stretch her claws.
The Haymarket district of Lincoln.
C and L Dairy Sweet, near Pioneer Park. Purveyors of fine lemon ice-cream.
Once more unto Omaha, though the photos are all from the journey home.
Two cats. One wide-angle lens.
Off to Omaha again.
The Haymarket is the area around the railway station and is full of restaurants, bars and artsy shops. Not including Village Inn, which isn't downtown.
The shadow of Kita's KitchenAid mixer. Looks like an alien, to me.
A tour of the State Capitol
The crossing point under the tower.
Commemorating bravery in public service and also the ideals of Nebraska and America.
Another visit to C and L.
Flying home across Iowa and Minnesota.
Sunrise over Northern Ireland
