it's always fun to plan a trip, and this post is to give family an idea of the august itinerary. ..this plan can (and will) be modified, and these ideas will be used as a starting point.
fri, 30th: driving. we are planning to arrive at night, if julie can come with me. ..if she can't make the trip, i'll probably drive all night thursday and get into rhody on friday morning.
sat, 31st: providence (let's make a plan! ..open)
sun, 1st: providence (open); probably go to church with mom & dad.
mon, 2nd: cape cod (whale watching)... we did this many years ago, and i'd like to do it again.
tue, 3rd: new hampshire? climb a mountain? (sleep in n.h.?)
wed, 4th: new hampshire/maine? arcadia? (sleep in n.h. or maine)
thur, 5th: rhody (south county? beaches? wine tasting?)
fri, 6th: ferry to block island, or nantucket, or martha's vinyard (bike around the island), everyone is welcome, but (just so you know) i'm wanting to rent a bike and explore, so pedal if you want to. never been on nantucket. no idea if this would be any fun.

sun, 8th: al's birthday
mon, 9th: new jersey
