Last year, Maine was the target destination. We had a great time exploring from Bangor to Portland and places in between. So, we decided to return to New England for the fall colors once again. This year we will be touring throughout New Hampshire for our first-ever visit.
Original plans included travel in Vermont as well. But in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, which left many roads severely damaged or closed, we opted out this year. But, we may still try to see a little, since we will be close by.
Of course, just like last year, we’ll blogging along the route whenever we have internet access. There will be lots of places to explore and learn about, and share.
If any fellow bloggers have been through these states, please post any comments on suggestions. We’re spending the first 2 weeks at an extended stay in Nashua, NH and will be taking day trips from that base location.
In mid-October, we’ll be going to RI for the christening of new (as of July) granddaughter Elizabeth – at 3 months old she is quite the celebrity.
A benefit of being in NH is that we’ll be a lot closer to her RI home then travelling from the VA eastern shore, about a 10 hour trip.
