Spent the Thanksgiving long weekend up in New Jersey with Amy’s folks. There was turkey, of course. I also learned about how olives and celery as traditional American Thanksgiving fare. (You can see it on the plate at upper right.) On Saturday we ran up to New York City for a bit to see El […]
We hopped over to Shenandoah National Park* on Saturday for some hiking and scenic vistas. It was a bit late for Fall color but the views along Skyline Drive were still lovely.
Went to Chincoteague again over the weekend for some hiking and seafood and ponies, to see the island in the Fall and hopefully see the Antares rocket launch. Sadly launch got delayed to the Monday and then the Tuesday after — and even more sadly, the rocket then exploded. We at least got to see Antares […]
BIG Maze (designed by Bjarke Ingels Group) is just that: a giant maze of high wood walls, but with a twist: as you go deeper in, the walls gradually descend towards the core, revealing more and more of the structure as you approach the center. We visited last weekend and I got a POV traverse […]
We went to Kings Dominion for a Saturday day trip. No roller coaster Glass videos this time as I forgot my head strap, but here’s the view from the Ferris wheel:
Photo album Video playlist They call it Sin City, but we weren’t in Las Vegas for gambling or sex: my primary mission was to get the nerdiest possible photo I could with William Shatner at the Star Trek Convention. Mission accomplished.
Amy and I met up with her dad in Hersheypark on Saturday for roller coasters and animals, and I brought along the Google Glass to see if I could get some good POV coaster videos. I was not disappointed.*
Been a year since our last trip to Chincoteague, so we drove to the shore over the weekend to bask on the sand, kayak around a bit, eat some oysters, and see the Orb-2 rocket launch from Wallops. Also brought along the Google Glass to get some POV video of our adventures.
Fourth of July in New Jersey presented an opportunity to test out how well Google Glass captures fireworks. It was pretty fun to be able to record video while also looking at the explosions rather than checking a screen constantly. (With thanks to brother-in-law Bob for driving us to Nomahegan Park to see the show.) […]
We hadn’t been to Harpers Ferry since our honeymoon, so we made a day trip of it to hike the Maryland Heights Trail. Never an easy climb, but we made it up to the overlook.
