N. H., R. I. and CT. 8/30/12

N. H., R. I. and CT. 8/30/12: On the Road Again Thursday Aug. 30

Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. We have a few states that we haven't experienced yet. We have driven through New Hampshire on our way to and from Maine twice. But never really done something.

It was a beautiful sunny day for a stop at Hampton Beach. Tire tracks....dune buggy? We drove through blocks of beach houses. It was quiet. Bet it will be a busy place this weekend.

We stopped at the Museum of Work and Culture in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. We learnt the story of French Canadian immigrants who left Quebec to come to work in the mills and factories.

Church of the Precious Blood built in Woonsocket in 1754.

Last year when we were at the Bismarck, S.D. Museum we saw a "Thank You for the U. S. assistance during WW I boxcar train" from France. We learned a boxcar was sent to every state. This boxcar sent to Rhode Island.

Again I found the seal for my ancestors homeland.

No longer seeing salt box houses.

Leaving Woonsocket, RI.

We went out to eat with our friends, Mike and Carol in Cromwell, CT. We stayed overnight in our RV in their driveway. They treated us to a fantastic breakfast in the morning. It was so good to visit with them.
