A Return To Ireland - The O'Koski Clan Edition (Part 4) by Douglas Koski

The sleep I was able to get wasn’t quite enough. Fortunately, 3 drinks over 5 hours is hardly enough to warrant any hangover concerns. A cold had started settling in, but I wasn’t going to let it completely drag me down. We had plans, and Theresa had some cold meds to help me push through. Got some aid my sinuses and we started assessing our plan of attack for the day. It was going to be another beautiful sunny day and we had plans for a long journey East.

A Return To Ireland - The O'Koski Clan Edition (Part 3) by Douglas Koski

We awoke to another well received sunrise. We knew the morning sunlight was to be a short-lived surprise. Though it was scheduled to return later in the day, we were in Ireland. The morning forecast quickly became reality. As the sun rose it only made a brief appearance for the early risers. Shortly after it disappeared behind the clouds that were already looming overhead.

We were watching our departure window slowly slip away… Sinéad and I had picked up Deacon Arnold with plenty of time to arrive to Providence, but the Boston area’s ever worsening (and politically ignored) traffic crisis had flooded over to I-495 much earlier than we all had anticipated. We made it to the southern edge of Marlborough about the time our GPS said we should have originally arrived at T.F. Green.

An Autumn visit to Lost River Gorge by Douglas Koski

Sinéad and I found a great deal on Groupon for an adventure we had been waiting a long time to go enjoy. We quickly discussed the finding and determined we needed to try to fit it in to our schedule before our next big adventure (hoping there will be updates to share for that as well). Our adventure brought us to Lost River Gorge & Boulder Caves.

2018 Seek the Peak & Hike for Mike by Douglas Koski

We were gifted with the most beautiful of days for this year's Seek the Peak hike!  I don't anticipate that we'll ever see the skies as clear at the summit with perfect temperatures again.  The winds were there just enough to keep the air moving as we hiked.  For the first time, sunscreen really wasn't optional.  Though, I never did apply any.

A Spring Trip to Mt. Washington by Douglas Koski

On Sunday I had an spark of inspiration shortly after dropping Sinéad off for the bus to Boston.  She was heading down to Bean Town to enjoy a couple days of girl time with her mom.  The highlight of which was the Pink concert last night.  The inspiration was to use the rest of my free day to find a waterfall and try to capture an image worth putting on the wall.
