New England USA ~ Out & About


Sunday 10 August, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Mid 80’s and I was out and about in New England in the northwest United States. So far we’ve had some snaps from downtown Boston, then a day of whale watching, some residential palatial palaces, and then a weekend seeing how rich boys played, followed by a few shots of the beautiful rivers and lakes from that part of the states.

For the last post in this mini-series, here’s a mix that I’ve called “Out and about” – a few shots that summarize much of my time ‘over there’…


Covered Bridges are very common in the northern states and something I don’t recall seeing in other countries. Are they a feature in your homeland too?

The Green Mountains of Vermont – if only I had had a bike over there…

Ice cold rivers roaring over huge boulders, managed forests and natural woodland as far as the eye can see… this area of New England has an abundance of natural beauty that one would be hard pushed to tire of.

I went camping in Jamaica!!!

Ok, sort of…. I spent a weekend in Jamaica State Park, camping with my cousins friend, Fred. Great memories of shark steaks on an open fire, supping a few tinnies in the firelight late into the night as we put the world to rights.

Hailing from distant shores (Britain), the name Manchester doth mean something a little different to what you see below…. yes, this was the beach at Manchester-by the-sea (Massachusetts). 

Couldn’t get more different to the northern UK city of Manchester if you tried!

P.S.:  As with all these ‘blast from the past’ series, please note, and excuse, the quality of the images. All are scans of low quality 6″x4″ (15x10cm) prints that were stored away in an attic for a long time.

  5. New England is a beautiful American region. Thank you again for the photos, as old as they are, some things never change. The beauty of the New England states is still comparable. More people in Boston and its surroundings suburbs but still gorgeous.


...waiting to hear from you...
