Fall Is Here!




Last weekend I was still not feeling well but I was dying to get out of the house and see the world a bit. I convinced my Daddy to take me on a drive to look at the fall leaves. And while he agreed to get me out of the house, he refused to pull over to let me take pictures- insisting that I had to stay in the car, not exert myself and finally get well. OK, fine dad. So we were off. We started here in Upstate NY and headed up to Bennington, VT. These pics aren't great as they were taken from inside a moving car. But trust me that they leaves and mountains really were beautiful. Like candy!



Then we headed over to one of my favorite little towns, Williamstown, MA. If any of you live somewhere between the Capital Region of NY and Boston, MA, a stop in Williamstown is a must. It's tiny- not really a destination. But it is only an hour from the Cap Region and less than an hour to the outlets (and another adorable town) in Manchester, VT. Check out the pumpkin/veggie stand we found on the way from VT to MA. Can you read the pumpkins spelling VERMONT? Oh-my-gosh too cute!!











OK, this tacky lion thing has nothing to do with fall. But it is part of a set that are at the entrance to a trailer park. I couldn't stop laughing at such a seemingly fancy entrance to a less than fancy neighborhood. I made Dad turn around so that I could get a decent picture.


All in all, it was a great outing. We saw lots of leaves, people walking about (as it was beautiful last weekend) and pretty houses. Just what the doctor ordered!

Hope you feel better. I was admiring the change of color around the Chicago area today with my husband the colors are so intense.
