Well Vinnie there is an uneasy feeling when you drill holes in your coach and in spite of all the magic goop each is a potential leak. And yes the old oil burners do just keep rattling along leaving a little trail of smoke behind.

Thanks Mike and Khaosinc for the kind words, glad you are enjoying or little adventure.

It rained all day Sunday and Monday at Sandy Hook so we escaped an had dinner at a little waterside café in Norwalk. We were joined by cousin Jim, the little guy in a previous pic, his wife Claudia and young son Jimmy. It was so nice we ate outside on the deck and Irene had her first fresh New England lobster in many years.

Tuesday we fled Sandy Hook and had a leisurely drive to New Haven and then on the interstate to a camp ground in Niantic. After an early check in we drove to Mystic for a lovely evening and lobster roll for dinner. It's a beautiful area for those of us who enjoy travel on the water as well as on Terra Firma. We were stopped by a owner of one of the many beautiful waterfront mansions and ask where he could purchase a motor home like the Hagarstream as he had always wanted one. Of coarse I referred him to Airforums.

I tried to upload some pics but the connection is just too slow. I'll try some later.

Cheers, Dan

Thanks for following along with us Julianne. I'm sorry about the Dane cravings but we all know there is only one cure. In the mean time I will keep posting Hagar pics as he is enjoying the trip along with us.

Today we went to the Submarine Force Museum at Gorton, Conn. A very interesting part of Naval history with the first nuclear powered submarine, Nautilus open for touring. From there a pleasant drive on Hwy 1 to Neport, Rhode Island.

Last nights camp site at Niantic
Hard to see but that is General Dynamics the people who build many of our submarines

Yesterday we headed to Bristol for a visit to the Herreshoff Marine Museum. The Herreshoff Manufacturing Co. opened operations in 1878 and by the time it closed the doors in 1945 had produced over 2400 boats. It is a must stop for anyone who appreciates fine boats. Nathaneal Herreshoff also designed six consecutive successful America's Cup Yachts between 1893 & 1920 and the company build built eight consecutive winners by 1934. There are more than 60 boats on display at the museum.
Next we headed to East Providence to the Crescent Park Carousel built in 1895. Irene took a ride while Hagar and I watched. Afterward of coarse we had to have an ice cream cone. We then hit the highway for New Hampshire and dinner with a friend. We stayed at a campground a couple of miles outside of a town call Lee and about a mile down a dirt road. A nice park but by far the most secluded place we have been so far.

A few pics,
Mt. Hope Bridge over the East Passage of Narragansett Bay. No we didn't go to England, they are paving the bridge and the one lane traffic was very slow.
Some of the 60 boats at the Herreshoff Museum
There were more than 500 half hull models on display. These are the actual vehicles of conception and design of hull shapes.

Bristol is so patriotic that the center lines in the streets are red, white and blue

A beautiful carousel

Today we headed into Maine. As soon as we crossed the border we encountered a must stop recommended by my cousin. A lobster roll at a small stand next to the Kittery Trading Post called Bob's Clam Shack. He said look for the long line of people and he was right, a must stop. Next we drove through York and out to the Neddick Lighthouse. On to Kennebunkport and a look across the cove at the first President Bush's home. We are camped at an "Adult Park" called the Wild Duck in Scarborough just outside of Portland. I must say I've gotten more recognition and thumbs up for the Airstream in the last two days then anywhere else on the trip. I guess the people here just have good taste.

A few more pics.

Hi, Dan. I hope you cooked them live lobsters before having them for dinner.

Go for it Sal. They say sea food is good for you. One of the few things good for you that actually tastes good.
Bob I do like my meat rare but those pinchers can get you so it's best to take the edge off with a little boiling water.

Cheers, Dan

You drove by my godfather's house if you took Shore Road up from Cape Neddick Light. There is a small road that runs up the coast (that's Shore Road) and it's very narrow in places. I have driven it many times in my 345 and it requires some honks on the blind curves that have overgrown rose bushes.

My godfather's place is just after you come out to a point overlooking the North Atlantic and have to take a 150-degree turn to the left (heading north). After the turn, we are the 3rd house on the right.

How I wish we were up there now instead of working on the schooner we just bought in the hot Stock Island boatyard. I love the boat, but it is just bad timing. We are just about 2 weeks away from finishing the Airstream project, but that's now on hold 'til the wood boat goes back in the water (so that it will not dry out).
