WEEKEND IN NEW ENGLAND

Home in Port Charlotte
Forecast high of 87°, 50% chance of showers

My wife and I just returned from an eight day working vacation in New England.
We have some wonderful friends who have a winter home in Port Charlotte, FL, a summer home in Seekonk, Mass and their parents have a gorgeous 7 acres with a 3 story beach house on Nantucket Sound, Cape Cod.  They invited us for a long weekend and I followed it with a 4 day business trip.  Here's a photo tour of our weekend in New England:  (Click pictures for full screen image)
There is a brief video I shot while whale watching at the bottom on this page.

View from the huge front porch

7 acres of wetlands provides nice privacy and gorgeous scenery

The swan river divides their property from the neighboring homes, some distance away.

This shot of the blow hole shows how close they were to us

A whale of a tail

Breaching the surface

QB Kevin Kolb drives the Cardinals to an early lead

The AZ Defense harassed Tom Brady all day; here, Calais Campbell bats a  pass away.

Cardinals WR Andre Roberts dives across the goal line to give the Cardinals the lead for good!


My wife looks on from row 37

When it was over, Arizona had shocked the world and upset all of New England.  It was only the 2nd Patriots defeat in this building in the past 34 games.  My wife and I will never forget the experience of our Weekend in New England.
