wicked cool new england trip


Jeff and I took a trip to Maine and New Hampshire in mid-October. Geographically, the New England area is everything we love...mountains, ocean, lakes, rocky coastline. I am definitely dreaming of living there someday, but that's been a dream since I first visited as a kid. Maybe it's meant to be?

While we were there, we attended a family get-together and 90th birthday celebration for my Great Uncle Howard and Great Aunt Trudie (his wife)...this is the 3 of us together. I haven't seen them, or much of this side of the family, for 10 years, so it was a reunion I will definitely treasure, especially since Uncle Howard is the only one still living from my Grandma's generation. Also, my Uncle Don and Aunt Karen live in Maine, so we spent a lot of time with them. 

Here are some photo highlights of the trip:

We stayed in the White Mountains for a few days...






some views of Mt. Washington...




coastal Maine beachcombing...




so many snails!

Gorgeous photos, love those rock colors. My hubby grew up in Maine and we both lived in Boston. New England is the best!! We hope to return. Maybe we'll be neighbors one day :))

OH wow... These took my breath away! Made my heart pound in that, "You have got to do this" way. Thanks for sharing, Bets!
