Worcester, Massachusetts

My grandson, Theo, is at his first term and time away from home, at Worcester Polytechnical Institute. It was a great treat to get to see him and he showed me around campus. I cycled 40 miles from Pawtuckett, Rhode Island, to Worcester and stayed in an AirBnB because all the hotels were full for Parent Weekend.

Traveling again!

October 1, my four month volunteer job at Prince William Forest Park ended and I took the train north to Providence, Rhode Island. Then I bicycled five miles to Pawtucket and spent the night.

Train ride across the Potomac River, through Washington DC.
Reminds me of the Roman aqueducts in Europe.
Black Lives Matter graffiti in a train yard.
Fascinating views of New York City.
The seven-hour train trip from Woodbridge, Virginia, to Providence, Rhode Island, was very pleasant and interesting.

Cycling the Virginia Capital Trail

The Virginia Capital Trail, 52 miles from Yorktown to Richmond. I spent a night about halfway, at the Edgewood Plantation.

I started n Jamestown, cycled through Willamsburg and spent the night at the Edgewood Plantation along the trail. Then cycled into Richmond the next day and took the train to Quantico and cycled back into Prince William Forest Park. Great trip!

Williamsburg, Virginia.

Spent the day exploring their living history museum. These are the original buildings, many built around 1745, pre-revolutionary war.

Cycling in Virginia

Taking a week off from my volunteer duties at the Park, I took the train to Willamsburg and cycled to Jamestown, making a 17-mile loop. Living history museum and ships of John Smith are fascinating.
