4th of July New England Clambake
When I was a kid my family had a great annual tradition for the 4th of July. Corn on the cob, clams, lobsters, sausages and potatoes were thrown into the pit and then the kids got to throw more seaweed in. It was a magical time full of American flags, sparklers, hearty food and real comradery.

Boating & Pets New England Style
Here in New England, we take our boating, and our pets very seriously. Many of us see no reason not to combine the two. People often wonder about how difficult that might be, and for sure, it isn’t for everyone. I have no idea what other parts of the country are like, but here we take em with us.

Cranberry bogs are generally huge tracts of marshy, acidic lands that have been cultivated and groomed by their owners. They always have decently groomed dirt roads all around and throughout the bogs and we used them for dog & goat walking, horseback riding and ice-skating.
