Took advantage of school vacation this summer to do travel-with-kids "research" -- sailing on a Windjammer off the Maine coast, enjoying beaches at Ogunquit and Wells, exploring the White Mountains and kayaking in New Hampshire's Monadnock region. Early September took us to Quebec City and the Charlevoix and in October we returned to Portugal's Algarve to catch up on what's new since our last guidebook. Ski season took us to Quebec's eastern Townships for a week in the snow, and to the White Mountains for school vacation week. April vacation takes all of us back to Venice and Verona.
