This is my vacation, and you're welcome to it.
These pages will endeavor to share with you my journey through the northeast United States. This was my first trip to New England and the colors were spectacular. The pictures obviously don't do justice to what I actually saw, but I consider myself a reasonably good photographer, therefore you should get a reasonably good idea of my trip. The descriptions will be paraphrases of the journal my mother kept.
Speaking of these photos, I should point out that there over 120 totaling around 5 megabytes. I have not, however, placed every single image on a single page (whew)! The images are, typically, only about 50-60 kilobytes each. The pages are divided up by day. On a 28.8 modem, a page with photos should only take a minute or two to load.
Feel free to see pictures of the next vacation I took through the northwest states at http://www.dtpbylee.com/vacation/ These pictures are much better quality since I had them put on Kodak Picture CD when they were developed.
Before we start, enjoy this tidbit of humor we found at the Reversing Falls Restaurant in St. John, New Brunswick, Canada:
Ten Commandments for Tourists
- Thou shalt not expect to find things as thou has them at home, for thou has left home to find things different.
- Thou shalt not take anything too seriously, for a carefree mind is the beginning of a fine holiday.
- Thou shalt not let other tourists get on thy nerves, for thou art paying out good money to enjoy thyself.
- Remember to take only half the clothes thou thinks thou need--and twice the money.
- Know at all times where thy passport is, for a person without a passport is a person without a country.
- Remember that if we had been expected to stay in one place, we would have been created with roots.
- Thou shalt not worry, for he that worrieth hath no pleasures--few things are ever fatal.
- When in Rome, thou shalt be prepared to do somewhat as the Romans do.
- Thou shalt not judge the people of a country by one person who hast given thee trouble.
- Remember thou art a guest in other lands, and he that treateth his host with respect shall be honoured.
So without further ado, sit back with mouse in hand and come along for a virtual trip through New England through my eyes. "Are we there yet!?"
