The Things You See Along the Way: Why I love New England…

Earlier this week, Greg asked me and Olive, the pug, if we wanted to go for a ride to do a little Leaf Peeping.  We both said yes, of course, and off we went.  I let him decide where we would go and Olive and I sat back and enjoyed the ride.


We headed up north toward New Hampshire where the leaves are nearing peak.
  Here are a few things we saw.

Let me live in a house by the side of the road and be a friend to man...



Was there ever any doubt?
When we got close to Hillsborough, New Hampshire we saw a sign indicating that the Franklin Pierce Homestead was close by so we stopped to admire his beautiful house on that fine fall day.  For those who don’t know, Pierce was the 14th President of the United States from 1853 to 1857 and the only President from New Hampshire.


Moving on, we finally made it to Keene, New Hampshire where we had a nice lunch outside with Olive at a local establishment called Local and then a little after two o’clock, we turned around and admired the leaves all the way back to Massachusetts.


I love fall in New England!  It simply sings and dances with color.
  What can be better than that?
Nothing, in my book.

Bumper stickers of the day:  Do you think this woman likes horses?

Such beautiful fall colours down there. Thanks for sharing your pics with us. Ours are faded and dropping like rain. We bagged another 6 bags today and there's still more to drop!

Your photos have made us that much more anxious to be living in New Hampshire, which is our future destination, Barbara. The only drawback is that we first need to sell the home we currently live in on the Va eastern shore. We have been to Keene, NH and the big pumpkin fest there is not to be missed,

Gorgeous colors! We don't have this yet. I'm hoping the leaves don't go straight to brown and fall off.
