I got an environmental education in the foods of the forest with writer and educator Sarah Courchesne.  Along with a similar group of interested individuals we traipsed along the quad area of Northern Essex Community College where Sarah works as a teacher.

In a short amount of time she pointed out the importance of cattails, sumac berries and other plants and their usage.

Thanks to a friends gift, Janet and I spent a wonderful evening with dinner and a sunset at the Newburyport Range Light House at 61 1/2 Water St. Newburyport MA.

We were first met by Lighthouse Preservation Society proprietor Jay Highland. We then proceeded five flights of stairs to the top of the lighthouse. After a little history lesson Jay took our dinner orders and we explored the view for the next few hours.

Enjoying my coffee and dessert we made our entry into the log book and relished the quiet and serenity of the night.

National Ice Cream Day is Sunday with more views from the Merrimack Valley Magazine article “Beyond the Cones and the Cows” by writer Dean Johnson.

I headed to Jay-Gees Ice Cream at their Methuen MA location.
I got to work behind the counter with the staff and capture all the action making my favorite banana splits, cones and cups with the latest flavors, color combos and all with jimmies too.

But lots more can be done there, and the batting cages, go-carts, bumper cars, arcade and mini golf are all there waiting for you.
