Today, we walked the about 4 miles around the edge of Peaks Island. It was a really beautiful walk, and I’ve got a few posts worth of pics. It was great, as always to spend the day with Megan and John, and walk side-by-side with them. We had a great left-over picnic with amazing views.
Mr. John Jackson, aka Papa John, road into to town this week. Today I took the day off so that Megan and I could give him a lighthouse tour. Here are a few photos.
Megan and I completed our first camping trip today. We spent a night at a campground 2 miles from our apartment. Our goal was to get our new tent out its box and make sure we could set it up. Also, as it had been a while, I wanted to make sure I could still light a fire. Success! The tent was easy and breezy, and I made us breakfast on a campfire!
My father-in-law, Mr. John Jackson, is hitting the road. For the next few months, it will be him, his motorcycle, and the open road. He’ll go where ever his fancy takes him. He’ll visit old friends and family, see places from his past, and visit new places as well. He may even go to the arctic circle! I hope that when I’m in my sixties, I can go on adventures like Papa John does.
Here is a #tbt pic of him from the early 1980s. Ride on John, and I wish you the happiest of trails:
We drove into Fitchburg, MA the night before Thanksgiving. We departed from Portland, ME at around 10 am and made our first stop in Boston. We had about 2 hours to kill before meeting up with the mommy side of Megan’s family at her grandmother’s home in Chestnut Hill. We decided to try to find the Garment District in Cambridge, and our goal was to find it without using GPS. I’m proud to say that it was a team effort, and that we found the shop after about a half hour. :highfive:
