“but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
As 2016 comes to a close and 2017 quickly approaches, we hope that the New Year brings much health and happiness! Thinking back over this past year and all of the exciting things that happened, I am reminded of how much I have to be grateful for. If you have been following our blog this year, you have joined us on many adventures as we traveled from coast to coast in our beautiful United States! We also ventured out of the country for a little trip into Victoria, Canada to visit the amazing Butchart Gardens! From our first trip of the year, not too far away from home…to sharing the beautiful European cities of Edinburgh and Dublin…an opulent palace in St. Petersburg, Russia...to Pike’s Place Market in Seattle…and our final trip of the year to New England, you, our sweet readers, came right along with us! We took ferries, hopped in with personal tour guides, boarded flights, and laced up our shoes for many walking tours! As you will see, New England was extremely popular with you all! And we agree…it was a lovely trip! Join us today as we take a little trip here, there, and everywhere! I hope you enjoy re-visiting our most popular travel posts of 2016!

On our trip to New England in late September we stayed three days in Boston. We packed in a lot in those three days! On my agenda was to take a walk along the streets of Beacon Hill, a historic neighborhood of Federal-style row houses with brick sidewalks and narrow gaslit streets. It was beautiful, and you all agreed! No one invited me in, but I loved viewing the architecture, the unique doors and window boxes!
