February 2019 Edition Newsletter

Is it me or is this winter going by pretty quickly? It is already the last week of February without much snow. For me, time seems to be flying by as I take in these first couple months of retirement. In retrospect, I probably overbooked myself with travel, but all in a good way.

Speaking of travel, I am writing this on a flight to Venice, Italy (Swiss Air wifi for the win!). I have always wanted to see and photograph Carnevale di Venezia so this was one of the first trips I booked this year. 

Since my New Year's 2019 newsletter, I took a course in the frigid, but beautiful Catskill / Hudson region of NY. Fortunately, a cousin in Florida invited me down for a break of warmth in the Ft. Myers / Sarasota / Naples area. February brought the Tunnel of Love here to the North End and of course, we had yet another Super Bowl parade to cheer.
Hudson / Catskill, New York
Winter scenes from the Catskill / Hudson region of New York. The Hudson River was iced over and the snow covered the scenic landscapes. It was also interesting to see the revitalization of the Main Street district. View the photo gallery here.
Ft. Myers / Sanibel / Sarasota / Naples
My first time on the west coast of Florida, which was quite beautiful. Sunsets galore and a cool mix of urban and nature. The days were perfect, 80 degrees high and with the teal water beaches, I can see why the west coast has become so popular. View the photo gallery here.

Patriots Super Bowl LIII Parade 2019

Over a million Patriots fans swarmed downtown Boston for the parade to celebrate the Super Bowl LIII championship team. The rolling rallies have become a consistent experience in Boston. For the New England Patriots, it was the 6th Super Bowl victory after beating the Los Angeles Rams. And, it was just 3 months ago that a parade was held for the Red Sox to top off the 2018 World Series. View the photo gallery here.

Tunnel of Love

St. Valentine's Day brought the Tunnel of Love to iconic trellis, sponsored by the Friends of Christopher Columbus Park. View the photo gallery here.

Great Molasses Flood - 100th Anniversary

Bostonians formed a human circle on the site of a 90 foot wide molasses tank in Boston’s North End. Twenty one people were killed and another 150 injured when the faulty tank ruptured and exploded on January 15, 1919. View the photo gallery here.

Yes, that's me taking a selfie while waiting for the sunset on Sanibel Island.

Stay tuned to for my latest photography, including Carnival from Venice, Italy!
