Chelo's in Warwick, Rhode Island

It's time for another road trip and this time we take you to Rhode Island. My wife and her family lived in the Providence area for a time and they frequented Chelo's quite a bit. Having flown out of Providence recently we decided to check out the location directly across from the airport. We normally visit the Providence restaurant.

The Waterfront Restaurant, Anna Maria Island, Florida

Unlike a road trip this was more of a joy ride where we jumped in the car without any idea of where we were going or if there would be anything worthwhile to do or see when we got there. It could have been an oasis or a disaster. So one afternoon we decided to head south from Tampa towards the water thinking that there must be some nice beaches along the way.

Parlee Farms, Tyngsboro, Massachusetts, the best apple crisp

Back when I first visited Parlee Farms in Tyngsboro, MA several years ago it was just a small family operation with a tiny retail space as well as a petting zoo. Boy, have times changed. Today, the crowds are large and they keep adding more including apple picking (complete with a hay ride out the orchards) pumpkins, barn animals, and a bakery. Over that time we have seen them grow significantly and one thing has remained constant in the fall, our hunger for their homemade apple crisp.
