Leaving on a Jet Plane

Actually, we're already back. We just spent a week in New England, visiting Cape Cod, Boston, Salem, Jamestown and Mystic. I need to do some major editing, but I managed to take over 800 pictures. It was a pleasant change to be in the 60s and 70s when we're still over 100 degrees in Phoenix. I wore sweaters and socks and big girl shoes (flip flops are my shoe of choice most of the time).

I told Hubby the night before we left that I needed a new large handbag to accommodate my camera. We started looking at some at Kohl's and when he realized that the bags I was gravitating to were in the $80 range, he suggested we just go look at new smaller cameras instead. I was hoping to get a new camera for my birthday in December so moving the timeline up a few months had me grinning from ear to ear. I ended up with a Nikon Coolpix S3000 that I simply adore. This thing is so tiny, easy to use and takes great pictures.

I was learning how to use it on the plane and took a bunch of pictures out the window ...


The clouds were so thick it looked like you could just step out and walk on them. The last four were taken as we were preparing to land at Boston Logan.

During the week we took some fun tours and did things like visiting an alpaca farm, the Salem Witch Museum, Harvard, Plymouth Rock and a cider mill. I'll be sharing pictures as I get them organized.

I think a point and shoot is great for travel. (of course I don't have a Big Girl camera yet anyway)
Sounds like a great trip, I have never been up that way and would love to see what you saw. We were well over 100 today!

Those look great! It looks like you could just flop back and take a good nap on those clouds.

Love it...look for a handbag, get a camera instead! I bought a little Kodak for my last trip to Cabo, but I was completely unsatisfied with it. The pictures come out blurry - waste of money. I was planning to return it, but missed my 30 days to do so.

I should check out the Coolpix, I hear great things about them!

Wonderful! I hope you guys had a fabulous time! I'm sure you're still playing catch-up - I am, lol. I love your way of getting a new camera. :) Oh and you got to fly! My husband is scared of flying so we always drive.
