I'm Thinking of an M...

Our dear Holly (the blogger formerly known as Penniwig) left a comment asking where I was traveling to next. Like a juggler I had several balls in the air and not sure if I would catch any of them. But three of them -- one long in thought -- have come to some fruition and oddly or fortuitously all of the place names begin with the letter "M." Besides these three places I am planning another trip in November to another place that also begins with an M.

I'm very excited about all three. I will be with different groups of friends in different corners of the United States and Canada, and I will be adding two new states to my list and two new provinces. The states begin with M (though there is an "I", too) and the provinces are part of an M group.  

The first trip is next month, just about a month away. No clues yet -- and if you know, please don't tell -- but it is to a very historic part of our country, with a history stretching back well into colonial times. I am starting to read about the area and am learning a great deal.

No pictures yet, but no need to worry,there will be pictures!

HI!!!!
I'm guessing Massachusetts!!!!! Boston is to exact!!! But then that is so dog gone close to New York, surely you have been there many times!!!!Haha Or maybe Mississippi!!!!
The Canadian province would be Manitoba?????
Sorry if I gave it away, I'm terrible at keeping things quiet!!!! Unless you beg me to keep it a secret!!! But since I really have NO idea, it's just a Guess!!!!!

It is so great that you get to travel like that. I rarely leave Ohio but occasionally I do get to visit with some of my out of state children. I'm mostly an armchair traveler and will appreciate your trips through pictures.

I'm guessing Mass. but I really don't have a clue. I just know the pics will be wonderful. They always are, dear friend.

Oh, how I wish I could go with you. I'll be with you in spirit though, won't I? =)

So travel safely dear lady. I can't wait to hear all about it. (^_^)

Manitoba or Massachusetts..? I'd be heading to Cape Cod if it were me! My daughter told me that when I turn 60, she'll take me on a trip there. I'm 58 now, and can't wait to go!

Well, MIDLAND TEXAS, voted The Most Beautiful Spot in West Texas by Midlanders, starts with an "M" but I am guessing you want to save up and spend an entire year admiring the dust, tumbleweeds, and rattlers, so it isn't one of the M's yer going to visit...yet...

I really miss traveling! We got to do that more when I had a job and income. I'll just live vicariously through you! Since you said very historic, I'm thinking your going to Mass.!

I've visited Winnepeg, Manitoba and it was a great place with a wonderful museum and zoo.
