We started the day by meeting JE and friends at Maxi’s in Waterbury for a delicious breakfast. Have you ever heard of stuffed pancakes? And a tour of the T@B while it was parked at curbside. Then in the company of Jean Elizabeth we drove just a few blocks to Ben & Jerry’s where under the guidance of Miles we took the factory tour. Our choice of days was not perfect. They were not making ice cream since today is a holiday. Guess that means we will have to come back another time. But we did get samples of Triple Caramel Chunk although Steve thinks Cherry Garcia is still Number 1. Of course we had to have our pictures taken by the Ben & Jerry’s bus, and we had to visit the Flavors Graveyard and pause while JE mourned at the graveside of Cool Brittania, her favorite but no longer available flavor. From there we proceeded east on US-2. Across Vermont, then New Hampshire, and on into Maine. We paused in Rumford to look at the falls, the Native American tribute sculptures and the Edmund Muskie memorial. Our first night in Maine is at the KOA in Canaan, just east of Skowhegan.

Cobh on Our Own

For our first adventure together on the Emerald Isle, we walked the streets of Cobh, County Cork, explored St Colman’s Cathedral, and visited the Cobh Heritage Center.
