Ice Castles, NH February 2020

In February 2020, during school vacation week we drove up to Lincoln, NH for a visit to the “Ice Castles”. These structures are formed every Winter with different shapes each year. They contain slides, tunnels, staircases, sculptures, fountains, overlooks and even a cafe with ice tables and chairs.

New York City – July 2019

Plymouth, MA – Sept. 2020

2020 marked the 400 year anniversary of the Mayflower arriving in New England, and they spent years planning a whole host of activities and festivals which all had to be cancelled…we decided to visit and see how many clamshells we could find on their scavenger hunt. It was a dreary day but we were stir crazy and needed to get out of the house!
