Providence, RI — 11.17.15

We wrapped up our New England bell tour in Providence, visiting Liberty Bell replica number 37 — our 7th and final bell of the tour. Our first stop in Providence was the 111th Annual Little Picture Show at the Providence Art Club.

Boston, MA – 11.13.15

We left Augusta in the morning, spent a couple hours wandering Portland and arrived in Boston around 3:00. Dawn was here a year ago to see a client and I was here about 25 years ago, but we’ve never been together. This is the first city on our bell tour where we’ll stay more than…

Augusta, ME – 11.12.15

Leaving Montpelier around 12:30 pm, we powered east through Maine, mainly in the rain. Primarily on back roads, we passed though many small towns, some scary, definitely haunted abandoned lake campgrounds, saw lots of moose crossing signs and no moose. By the time we got to Augusta (4:30), it was  dark and raining heavily. We…

Montpelier, VT — 11.12.15

We arrived in Montpelier from Concord around 11:00 am. It was chilly and raining lightly, but otherwise lovely. We parked across from the old Pavilion Hotel, now home to the Governor’s offices and the Vermont State Museum. We climbed the front stairs and met a very nice lady at the entrance to the museum. When she asked if…

Concord NH – 11.11.15

We arrived in Concord NH after dark and the Bell is not lit, but I was impressed with the flash on the iPhone 6. Reminds me of NE in the snow. Beautiful town. Looking forward to exploring more tomorrow.   

Albany NY – 11.9.15

The Liberty Bell replica in Albany NY is located inside the State Education Building across the street from the Capitol. You need to schedule a tour to see the bell up close, but some very nice guards let us in and gave us a quick look around. Everyone we met in Albany was exceedingly nice….

Bismarck, ND — 7.22.14

I took a slight, 200 mile diversion on a business trip to take in the North Dakota Bell. It resides in Century High School in Bismarck. No, I’m not practicing my mime moves, the Bell is protected behind plexiglass.

Cheyenne, WY — 3.23.14

Dawn and I finally got to the Wyoming Bell (the closest one to our home) in March on our way back from birding in Nebraska. It was a beautiful, quiet Sunday in Cheyenne.
