3 Days of Wonder and Nostalgia in New England’s Only National Park
New England, and certainly Acadia National Park, has always held a special place in my heart. I grew up in coastal New Hampshire and some of my fondest childhood memories center around family trips to the park. It was here, my brother and I took our first flight, soaring silently above the rounded mountains of Mt. Desert Island in a glider, and to this day, a clock hangs in my parents house with a photo of my brother, myself and our cousins atop Cadillac Mountain from a trip in the early 90’s. It was here too, that I took Bryn for her first trip to New England, before we were even dating, now 20 years ago, and here we returned two years later as part of our honeymoon. And so, after a far-too-long time away, we returned again this summer to Acadia to introduce our own children to a park that holds so many of our treasured memories.

A Waterfront Wonderland for Automotive Aficionados
This year, we again had the privilege of photographing the 2019 Misselwood Concours d’Elegance as part of the team from The Amelia. It’s both an honor and a joy to attend Misselwood, with its wandering lawns and quintessential New England views peppered with meticulously maintained and restored world-class cars.
Exploring the Craggy and Historic Sentinels of the New Hampshire Coast
Every once in a while, if the conditions are just right, we’ll get a summer’s day here in Florida that reminds me of my beloved New Hampshire childhood. Today is just such a day, with unseasonably low humidity, azure blue skies, the chirping of songbirds and a gentle breeze that transports me back to a lazy summer day in New England. It was on just such a day that Bryn and I visited the Isles of Shoals for the first time back in July of 2017.
A Walk Down Summer’s Memory Lane – Sail Portsmouth 2019
With Memorial Day marking the official unofficial start to summer here in The States, we thought it would be a perfect time to share some of our favorite memories from summers-gone-by as we look ahead to all this summer may have in store. Today, we’ll be looking back at last year’s Sail Portsmouth tall ships festival as we look forward to this summer’s event, featuring the CGC Eagle – a ship I haven’t seen in New Hampshire since I was a young child.
