No way to have a roadtrip without stopping in New England to hang out with my Italian for a few days. Good cooking, great wine and my favorite company. Filippo's house is slightly out of the way when one is driving from Florida to British Columbia, but I couldn't help myself (and I wanted an excuse to see Niagara Falls). Massachusetts is great in the summer time - both weeks of it. Uncle Rhettski's new flight park is under an hour away. We stopped in to see Rhett and his tandem pilot Anna (who I hope will be on our US girl team very soon). Also hung out at Pippo's drop zone and watched old men jump out of airplanes all day. Happy times.
On my last day there, I took a whale watching tour out off of Plymouth. Didn't get as close to any whales as I would have liked (although this boat did), but we got to see Humpbacks, Minke whales and Finbacks...and heaps of tails.
