the drive up (approx. 8 hrs) was wonderful...
as I was driving It was a beautiful October day, blue skies & warm afternoons...
the drive brought me through VA, West VA, Maryland, Pennsy., Nj, Ny & finally CT...
each state has it's own rate of change for Autumn colors and the further North I headed, the more color of course...
I have my camera with me, and have snapped lots of pics, but my Mom's computer is an 'oldie' and doesn't have a card reader, so I can't download pics till I get home ~
here is what I'm experiencing on my daily journies and walks :
~stately OLD saltboxes lined up neatly on oak & elm tree lined streets ~
~winding rock walls that meander through fields of golden grasses~
~wild geese honking overhead~
~crisp white church steeples pointing to the heavens against azure-blue skies~
~trees on fire with the blush of Mother Nature ~
~crunching leaves underfoot as I walk through the town green~
~pumpkins, cornstalks & decorations of every medium on porches to greet the Harvest~
~ clear ponds sprinkled with gemstoned hued fallen leaves ~
~ apple stands ~
~ saltwater breezes with a touch of summer still lingering ~
and so much more...
...my family & I are enjoy each other's companies ~
it's so strange to be 'home', but so comforting too...
I feel welcomed & loved, safe in my Mom's warm home.
I'll chime in again soon ~
(well, from CT right now!!)
