Greg's Version We started the day by visiting Battleship Cove. There are four ships at the museum: USS Massachusetts (BB-59), USS Lionfish (WWII submarine), USS Joseph P Kennedy (destroyer), and an East German Missile Cruiser. I spent about a hour wandering around the main deck and lower decks of the USS Massachusetts. I was surprised to see how crowded life was on a battleship. I had much more room on the USS Chicago (CG-11) guided ...
... the mansion that Great Gatsby was based on and a source of inspiration. Newport is most famous for its mansions, of which I think there are five. Newport was almost like the Brighton of Victorian England, the region was known for fresh air and health benefits. The rich plantation owners would all travel to their holiday homes in Newport to get away from outbreaks of typhus and disease in many of their South Carolina plantations. Many of the other wealthy home owners ...
As a typical 20 year old, being home on winter break is a lot more stressful than I remember while I'm at school. At school, all you can think of is the warmth of your own bed, the familiarity of your surroundings, your close friends you've known since you were in diapers, your mom's homemade dinners, the sound of your dog moving about the house, etc. You never think of the nagging that comes with it...and if you're a girl it's usually from your dad.

... getting up to Massachusetts. We are heading to a place at Foxboro which Sauli found for us….. the only RV Park up in that area open for winter. We had other options up in these Northern States but we liked the idea of staying reasonably coastal (it is inland, but not terribly so) and just south of Boston plus Plymouth where the first pilgrims arrived on the Mayflower. Perhaps we might be able to see these places while we are in Foxboro which is only ...

Thanks, Uncle David, for dinner! It was fantastic, and Kelsey got a free dessert!
So, Kelsey's birthday started by her waking up in Knight's Inn by herself and doing a show by herself with the "help" of about 20 tiny middle school girls.

I do not care how nice the person is at the front desk or how nice the room looks hotel housekeeping can make or break your stay in a hotel. I do not know what we did to make housekeeping take offense but when we returned from our day's adventure we found that the door to our room was locked! The door mechanism recognized our key and tried to unlock the door but was unable to. The person at the front desk seemed to know exactly what had happened and did not want us to see how she fixed the lock.
