Going through my photos this evening I came across a set from outs honeymoon in 2008. We started in Japan, then Australia, and finally stopping off in China on the way home. It was a great holiday that seemed to be over far too quickly. Hopefully in the future we will get to go back to Australia but now that we have 2 children it’s going to be one expensive trip!!
One of my favorite places to visit in New York City is the Rockefeller Centre. It never seems to be as busy or manic as the Empire State Building and the fact you get views of the ESB and Central Park win me over every time. The shots from this visit were taken at completely the wrong time – midday – and the light was harsh. This coupled with the haze and smog didn’t make for great pictures, but after some jiggery pokery in Aperture, a few of them have turned out OK!

As promised, here is a selection of shots taken during our weeks stay on the Cape! Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great for our stay and the temperature only really got up towards the end of the week. Despite this we managed to get to lots of places including a clam bake boat excursion! Overall, I was impressed with Cape Cod but had the weather been that little bit better then it would have been even more enjoyable.
Last summer the Johnson family took a trip over to the USA. The primary reason for going was that Lou had a work conference to attend in the beautiful Cape Cod town of Chatham. This meant that we could all go and enjoy a little bit of luxury for a few days. We flew from Manchester to Dublin and then on to Boston. One major advantage of going through Dublin, despite the extremely early start, was that you are cleared through USA immigration and customs this side of the Atlantic. This means that on arriving into Boston all we had to do was gather the troops and go off in search of our luggage- unlike at JKF (which is where we usually fly to), where we tend to have to wait for ages!
We stayed in a nice hotel on the Cambridge side of the river that was within walking distance of all major attractions. Unfortunately the weather for our time in Boston wasn’t great, mainly cloudy with some rain, but this didn’t dampen our spirits. The kids seemed to enjoy themselves (as one pic shows!) but I think they were secretly looking forward to getting to Cape Cod so that they could enjoy the sunshine and the pool at the beach resort.
These photos will form the first in the series of snaps taken during our summer vacation. The 2nd and 3rd sets coming from Cape Cod and NY, NY! Enjoy…
