Its a daunting sight. Well, its a daunting sight to me, who abhors the cold, the damp, the snowy. Yes, dear readers, I espied out my window, here in Burlington VT, a short line of, oh no! Canadian geese! The first Canadian geese this year, and yes, they were flying in that pattern! And we all know what that means. Time for me to vacate Vermont and drive directly south, as quickly as possible. No cold weather for this warm weather chick, no how, no way. Of course New England is beautiful in the fall-that might be one of its’ most beautiful seasons. And I am not averse to that beauty. But I prefer to look at it in a picture book these days, much the same way that I prefer to see the Grand Canyon and its’ beauty- from a comfy seat in an IMAX theater. Been there. Done that. Want sun. Want warmth. Want sandals.
Its been a fun, memory-filled three months here in Vermont. We’ve seen our kids and our grandkids, had adventures with them, shared dinners, bonded, taken a few hundred pictures to add to the twenty thousand we already have, and loved every minute of it. And we love them all, dearly. But possibly we love hot weather even more, so we’ll say our goodbyes on Tuesday, and direct our Escape towards CT and a couple of days quick check- in visit with our son, Fireman Nick. We’ve got a busy couple of months in front of us, on-the-road time, and then a 3 month stay in Arizona.
So, Bronwen, Chris, Tim, Soren, Bjork, Betty, Bernice, Henry, Ginny and Bill, all the great people at Days Inn, Colchester-thanks for the summer memories! And we’ll catch you, as they say, on the flip side! Until we meet again~
