My Odyssey

My Odyssey

A photo journal of my trip through New England, across to Nova Scotia
and down the East Coast to Delaware, Maryland, Washington, DC, up to Gettysburg
and Harrisburg, PA, and home to Erie, PA.

Up to this year my travels had taken me through 28 of the 50 states, so I decided this year to start seeing the remaining 22. This year I decided on the 6 New England states and Delaware. I also wanted to revisit Washington, DC in order to photograph the name of my third friend engraved on the Vietnam Memorial. Mission accomplished. When I was telling people about my plans, several suggested taking the Cat Ferry from Bar Harbor, ME to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. They told me this was a MUST. It sounded like such a great idea, that I decided to do it. They were right, it was a great experience. My travels took me through eleven states and into Canada twice. I hope you enjoy viewing these pages as much as I did making them.

Me at Niagara Falls. U.S. Falls in the background. Photo by an
Oriental man, kind enough to take it for me.

The sunrise over Sackets Harbor, NY on the east end of Lake
Ontario. More on Sackets Harbor and sunrises inside.

Port Kent, NY from the back of the car ferry crossing Lake
Champlain to Burlington, VT. This was my first trip on a car ferry.
Very satisfying.

Burlington, VT on the east side of Lake Champlain. I'll say it here.
Vermont was the place I loved most. I could easily have stayed
both weeks there.

Robert Frost's Vermont:
This was the most inspirational part of my
trip, and it was unplanned. I was sitting in the library waiting for a
computer. I saw this book on Vermont history and came across an
article on Robert Frost. He's always been my favorite, so a few
questions and I was off to Robert Frost country.
I had miles to go before I slept.

Downtown Bangor, Maine, former home of Stephen King,
my favorite author.

Canada's Ocean Playground, Nova Scotia, It is truly beautiful.
Dee, you are lucky to have grown up there.
