I was feeling up to another drive.

It was early Friday and we thought for sure there would be no rain if we went far enough north.¬† We packed the dogs water and food for her and some fruit and sandwich fixings in case we got hungry as well.¬† We have not seen rain for two weeks and are due to have some and yesterday a few light showers passed through the White Mountains of New Hampshire but it did nothing to dampen our day as we are determined New Englander’s(wait is that a real word, lol?)

We headed up the highway till we hit the notch and the travelled across Route 112 West in search of a spot to get some panning done in the river and swing the metal detectors.  JT had her agenda as well simply just to PLAY!

We dropped her daddy off at the river while I took a familiar ride to most of you,

though this time the color was not so brilliant I was either a few days late or maybe early.  It was still a nice 20 mile ride to get a hot cup of coffee and for me and my girl to have some alone time.  She loves riding shotgun with me two chicks in a black truck yes you know we turn heads lol.

Some of you already know I have a shoulder that has been hurting badly and having just had an injection by the surgeon I was up to getting out and since I can not see him till Halloween why not celebrate by spending time out in nature with my two favorites.

 

Now for a few shots of color I captured along the way.

This shot I took beside me while I was at the gas station fueling up.

No fall color to steal the beauty of the covered bridge this year.

JT and I may not have found a lot of color along the stream but we found a little Zen and her daddy found some color in his pan!

Clearly some of the trees were more like me holding on to Summer for all it is worth.  Fall may be pretty to look at but next comes cold and snow and that is not welcome in my world yet.  Poor folks in WY and SD just got hammered with a nasty blizzard and all-weather marches our way thankfully it is 2,000 miles away.

We left the river and climbed up to capture a pretty view which you can find even if the weather is not perfect.

As we traveled southeast I stopped to capture a few shots of a lake and to let the dog stretch her legs it had been a long day of riding and walking so I will add a few more photos of the lake as I end this post and get back to catching up on as many of yours as I can with the sun showing up I maybe pulled away again .

Have a great weekend!

I forgot.¬† Yesterday was a day I listed to some Janis Joplin tunes as it was the day she died so long ago and as I traveled down 16 S I saw a place for Old Hippies and I needed some¬†perfume, ¬†that¬†I have worn as my signature scent¬†since the late 60’s, yes Patchouli Oil¬† ¬†lol “old hippies” ¬†(well I was just a tad too young to be a real one thankfully or I may not have made it either) I am told by the young girl inside come in for it all the time.¬† This was the decoration outside their door.¬† Now what a way to end a perfect trip for COLOR!

We attended a PUMPKIN Stroll

The recreation department in our town held their  Third Annual PUMPKIN STROLL

The children came in beautiful costumes

They brought Carved Pumpkins for the contest

Vendors set up tables  with items for sale but they all had candy to pass out to the children  who also were Trick or Treating(dress rehearsal for the 31st)

We had a table with lots of candy as well and our raffle items for the Garden Club fundraising effort.

We donated 3  house plants for the Recreational Departments SILENT AUCTION for the many things they do for the towns Children

Have a look, after the heavy rains all night we were blessed with a beautiful day!

Thanks for coming on the Pumpkin Stoll with me

I really rushed photos and didn’t use a tripod as you can tell

I had to dash quickly as we had our table set up with a TV for a raffle prize

Goodbye till next year!
