Yankee Clipper

Spend an afternoon on the deck of a tall ship sailing around Boston harbor under wind power.  It is truly exciting and very affordable.  The crew are all fun world travelers with great insight on all things nautical.  Don’t miss this one!

Green Boston

 Last Fall we visited Boston.  My eye travels to green spaces.  Parks, trees, animals, water and gardens are picture worthy to me.   Enjoy Boston as I saw it.

Lithopolis Honey Festival

A fun weekend festival in Lithopolis, Ohio

Not just honey but bees, beeswax, herbs, art, plants and entertainment.

Ever seen a bee beard?  Imagine a man with thousands of swarming bees hanging from his chin.  Like a beard.  Truly Amazing.

As with most festivals the bee festival has plenty of junk food, most with a Honey theme.  Vendors display bee themed arts & crafts and also many different varities of honey and goodies.  A local Mead (honey wine) brewer is on hand to explain the process of fermenting Honey into wine and local beekeepers are eager to explain the beekeeping craft.

Local vendors sell anything imaginable related to honey.
