“Tiny House, Giant Journey”…maybe we should start “downsizing”..
Home in time to the see the sedums last hurrah. Hopefully it will continue for a few days to come. A lovely trip south of the border, has come to an end. Now to “settle” into our “regular routine”…funny.
A foggy morning on our way to a ferry to begin our trek homeward.
Fog lifted..on board the Champlain as we crossed Lake Champlain from Port Kent , New York State, to..
..Burlington, Vermont. On our journey we have crossed six states, all with wonderful fall scenery, quaint American small towns..
Taking a late lunch break at a brew pub, as it had outdoor seating, and the day was too beautiful to spend all of it in a car or indoors. I didn’t finish this huge portion of beer, by the way. Off the road in Bangor, Maine for the night.
After leaving Laura and Cody 😦 , we then drove for 7 1/2 hrs. through beautiful mountainous terrain towards Lake Placid.
I felt as though we were in Cape Breton, but rather than ocean views we had mountain views..
Arrived at our destination at a lovely hotel near the former Winter Olympic site at Lake Placid. Met up with Paul and Anne Marie, with whom we’ll spend a few days in this lovely setting. Fun to be getting together like this.
More lovely countryside travelling today, to quilting and knitting and hardware stores. Something for everyone..well, not Cody, the working man.
A coffee shop break in State College. Cafés are a great invention…
..followed by dinner and a movie with the working man. Our three days are ending..but guests, like fish, go off in three days, or so the expression goes. Time to let Laura and Cody get back to their busy lives. When next we see them they’ll be busier!
Laura made home made bread and croissants this morning.
Being pregnant isn’t slowing her down!
A lovely country drive found us at a sweet place…lovely to spend the day with the sweet couple..
Frank developed a new skill..rock carving..he did this to set in the house numbers onto this rock, as conceived by Cody.
Such an idyllic view from the backyard. Earlier we picked fresh raspberries here, and greens. A small feel of country right within a town. Heaven.
