There’s a certain nostalgia and romance in a place you left. ∼David Guterson
Ah, home again! Just barely getting caught up after 16 days in New England. On the plus side, there are new adventures to tell you about, but way too much to share in one post, so this is Part One.
We left Colorado on October 1st, with traveling companions Tom and Lexi. The plan was to spend a few days, before heading to Sunapee, cruising up the coast from Boston, visiting various landmarks of their time living in the area.
On the tour, Tom’s seminary (see him waving?) . . . ↓
The next day we did a bit more touring, including Rockport and Newburyport, but it was so cool and rainy, we decided to head to Sunapee a day early.
Here’s Tom trying out my favorite reading spot (especially when the fire’s going).
Of course a main draw of New England in the fall is the glorious foliage . . . We generally plan a longish stay in the fall to help close down the house for the season, but also to be sure we don’t miss the peak colors. This year they didn’t really get going until around the eighth, but then they were spectacular.
Things may be beginning to decay down below, but they’re glorious on high!
By reading the scriptures I am so renewed that all nature seems renewed around me and with me. The sky seems to be a pure, a cooler blue, the trees a deeper green. The whole world is charged with the glory of God and I feel fire and music under my feet. ∼Thomas Merton
Wishing you minimal disappointment when revisiting old haunts and a wonderful colorful fall! Part Two coming soon . . .
