Celebrating Away From Home

Today is the 4th of July in the States. Even though we live in London, we still try to celebrate all the American holidays. Tonight we’ll lift a glass in a salute to the US. Instead of having one travel photo today, here are some photos from our trips in our home country. Scroll over the photo to see where the pictures were taken. Happy 4th of July!

      When we lived in Boston we would drive up and stay for a weekend. Miles loved running on the beach and Att loved that the hotel was close enough to the water so he could see and hear it from our balcony. We would sit on the balcony, have some beers, order pizza and Chinese and watch the ocean. We always went in the off season so it was colder, but we had the place to ourselves. I miss those weekends.

    Wow, what a lovely set of photos. All of Your photos are so admirable. I tied to select one of my favorite among them – New York City skyline.

  13. Hope you had a wonderful 4th!

    A big salute back to you!
    You have posted a great tribute, and I especially like the sunset photo!
    It’s awesome that you still celebrate the U.S. holidays!

    • TBM says:

      We do our best. We have a few American friends who also do the same thing. Sometimes it’s hard to be away and celebrating these holidays helps us feel connected.

    Beautiful pictures, TBM! I thought I will say that I liked the pictures of Mark Twain’s house and Harriet Beecher Stowe’s house, but then I saw pictures of Louisa May Alcott’s house, Walden pond, the House of the Seven Gables, Sleepy Hollow πŸ™‚ All of them are beautiful! Hope you had a wonderful July 4th!

    • TBM says:

      We’ve been lucky and seem some beautiful places in the US. Since I’m partial to writers we spent a lot of time hunting down homes to visit. Now I track down writers in London.

  16. Caroline says:

    How I would love to visit all of these places.
    Hope you had a great 4th of July.

    • TBM says:

      I hope you do. If you ever go to any of these areas let me know so I can share some tips. I’m not an expert, but I love some of these cities and can share some stuff. We had a lovely day. Thanks, Caroline.
