Things You See While…Driving to Boston

By Brian | August 15, 2008 | Share on Facebook

Hello and welcome to what I hope will be a regular feature here at I Should be Sleeping, “Things You See While…”  I’ve got a few photo collections that are two small to be Flickr photo albums, but would make interesting blog posts, so I’ll try to group them into categories and post them with commentary.

This edition of “Things You See While” is brought to you by my family’s recent trip to Boston, MA.  It was an eventful drive.  First, there was the rainbow that followed the rather impressive sun shower:

To pass the time on the trip, I gave the kids maps of the United States and magic markers, and told them to color in the states they saw on the license plates we passed.  Imagine my surprise when we passed this bus:

It’s a little hard to see, but that’s one vehicle with two license plates – one from New York and one from Connecticut.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that before, leaving me rather unprepared to explain it to my kids.

And speaking on unexplainable, I told them from the start that there’s one license plate they definitely wouldn’t see – Hawaii.  We talked about how Hawaii was a series of islands, and how the only way to see a Hawaiian license plate is to find someone who had their car shipped to the mainland, which is expensive and rare.  Of course, by the end of the trip…

Sorry for the fuzzy picture (Hawaiians, apparently, drive like maniacs), but I did the best Photoshop job I could.  If you can’t see it clearly, you’re just going to have to trust me – it was an honest to goodness Hawaiian license plate on the Garden State Parkway!  Needless to say, there was much excitement and coloring with magic markers!
