Hampton Beach NH in the Off Season

in Coastal Trips/New Hampshire by

Robbie at Hampton Beach Wow! Did we pick the time to go to Hampton Beach in New Hampshire! Not only was it off season but it was the first snow of the year! Brrrr! But So. Much. Fun. If you haven’t stayed at the Ashworth by the Sea, DO IT! Some of the rooms, like the one we stayed in, are ocean side and the view is incredible, especially in the middle of a storm!


When we booked this room through Groupon, we were thinking, “The weather will still be warm so we’ll walk the beach, check out the few shops that will surely be open, swim in the pool and just relax…” Sure, great idea if Mother Nature hadn’t decided to interject. But she always has a way of shaping how our trips go. This was no different and I have to say…


It was even more fun than if we had done the predictable… Predictable is too boring for these Wayward Wanderers!

Magical Moments on the Cape

in Cape Cod/Coastal Trips/Hiking/Nature/Massachusetts by

Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz at Sandwich, MA public libraryOne of the best things about traveling together is we can do what we want, when we want, and when it’s just the two of us, we are in our own romantic world. And together, we are unstoppable. This is how this last trip to Cape Cod was.

We have a lot of people ask us how we do it.

“How can you travel together and never fight?”

“How can you travel together, spend every minute together, and always have so much fun?”

It’s an easy answer. We GIVE as much as we take… actually we give more than we take. Our trips are never about our personal needs and when you put each other first, well, how could it go wrong?

Rhode Island Waterfront: Hidden Treasures

in Rhode Island by

I never went to Rhode Island until I started dating Bill. Now, it’s one of my favorite destinations! The first time we went was in January 2014 and we stayed at the Newport Harbor Hotel & Marina in downtown Newport, RI.  You can read more about that trip here. This trip, however, we took with his mom, sister, and daughter and it was magical!


We stayed outside of Newport in Tiverton, Rhode Island. Bill, Sarah, and I got a late start on Friday due to work and dropping off Robbie at a friends so we didn’t get there until 7:30. As we got off the highway, wound our way down and through an old railroad bridge that formed an entrance to a road, Bill and I both were thinking, “Where does Kathleen have us staying?” LOL, the thought only lasted a minute though as we found ourselves on a narrow, private road along the Sakonnet River. As we drove down the road, Sarah, Bill and I got so excited about seeing Bill’s mom and sister and about the adventures the weekend would surely bring!

Maine is For Lovers: Portland and Other Maine Coastal Towns

in Maine by

Of all the places Bill and I have visited, Portland holds a special place in our hearts. It’s WHERE it all began and why we decided to go back there to celebrate our one year anniversary. It was so much fun! Don’t get me wrong, the first time we went to Portland was a lot of fun and incredibly exciting. Sparks flew! And this time sparks flew as well, lol, but this time we had the security and comfort of knowing one another. This time we experienced everything with our best friend. Ah, this love is amazing!


1545761_10203074488678725_7667970225891300646_nWe knew months in advance we were going to spend our anniversary in Portland, Maine so it gave us a lot of planning time. Thank God for LivingSocial and Groupon! Those 2 sites are all I used to get awesome discounts for almost everything we did over the weekend! Our hotel, the brew tour, and 2 of our dinners were purchased ahead of time through those two sites so we basically just had to show up! And because I went through them, we saved about $400!


What we didn’t know is we would have a loaner vehicle for the weekend. Bill Dodge BMW offers me a replacement BMW normally when I have routine maintenance done, but this time all their loaners were out. That’s okay though! We got to buzz around in a little Mini Cooper all weekend. It was a big difference from the bimmer but what a blast! And you can’t beat free! It was so darn cute and added to our trip. You’ll notice many photos of it throughout the album on Facebook.
