This past summer I had the opportunity to spend some time in parts of the northeast United States I have never seen before...and I was very impressed! The New England states are such an inspiration for me...I just love the classic look of the homes with the bright white exterior accented with the black, dark green or blue shutters. On the Cape the siding is typically cedar because it stands up well against the elements...particularly the salt air.

The beautiful gardens with the unbelievable hydrangea which grow effortlessly in the acidic soil are simply breathtaking. I never tire of the coast and all its light houses and beautiful harbors. The water is a crystalline blue and as clean and clear as that of the tropics. The New Englanders are also very friendly and welcoming people. They take great pride in their history and possess the desire to share it with all visitors who express an interest. I plan to visit Cape Cod and the New England states again and again...there is so much beauty to see. Time in New England is always time well spent!
