New England… I’m way behind on blogging already!
I don’t have a lot of time to tell stories today, so I’ll just post some bullets & pics to highlight what we’ve been doing since Thursday.
Friday was a rainy day so we went to the Basketball Hall of Fame where we saw honors and memorabilia for all the greats, including Jerry Colangelo, Shaq, Steve Nash, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, and so much more.
Then we stopped at a cute little roadside stand & bought some gorgeous and delicious apples.
Friday night, Terry went to a Red Sox vs. Yankees game in Fenway Park – it was rain delayed twice, but finally ended in a blowout by the Yankees after midnight. Most of their normal starters didn’t play because they didn’t want them to get hurt on the wet field. All in all, not the game that Terry had dreamed of seeing, but he says the ballbark is really awesome and has a lot of character. He sent me a photo from his cell phone, but we haven’t had time to get it to the blog.
Saturday we hung out in Lexington and Concord. Off and on rain again, so couldn’t do nearly as much as we wanted. We saw these geese at the National Heritage Museum in Lexington. I’m assuming they were on their way from Canada to their southern home.
We also stopped at The Wayside, which is a home where Louisa May Alcott (author of Little Women), Nathaniel Hawthorne (The Scarlet Letter) and others famous authors lived over the years. It must have been an inspiring place to produce so many well known writers.
We visited a few locations where the first confrontations in the Revolutionary War occurred too.
In the late afternoon, we drove thru the pouring rain to our new home base in Lincoln, New Hampshire, got settled in and relaxed a bit. The weather forecast for today didn’t look promising so we stayed nearby.
We drove along the Kancamagus Highway today, with intermittent rain, some fog, and heavy cloudcover at times leaving the “scenic overlooks” not very scenic. We did get to enjoy some nice sights, and even stopped at a “barn” sale along the highway. Linda, you would have loved it! And Andrew would have loved the boxes of albums and 45’s. Wish you were with us to enjoy it all! That’s where the snowshoe pic came from.
The colors are turning nicely, but with all the clouds, mist, fog and rain, I wasn’t able to get too many landscape shots. You can see from the top photo that the leaves are quite gorgeous though!
Well, gotta get to bed. Tomorrow we’re headed for Vermont. The weather forecast is for no rain and just partly cloudy skies Monday and Tuesday, so we need to make the best of it before the rain comes in again.
We miss you all and wish you were here. We have two extra bedrooms that we’re not using if you want to drop by.
