I'm Still Here...!

Well, actually I'm there - travelling the backroads of New Hampshire. I wish that darn RV wasn't in the photo, but I can't have everything. And no, the RV is not ours. Some interloper. Blogging has proved to be a challenge on this trip. We're often working with a 56K Internet connection or none at all. Thankfully for the moment we've got a fast wireless connection, enabling me to post this.

We arrived on the Atlantic seacoast yesterday and are in a little bed and breakfast in Portsmouth, NH called The Inn at Strawberry Banke. A very old house full of narrow stairs, sagging floors and charm. (I'll have photos to show and stories to tell when I return home.) Today we'll explore Portsmouth and then head off for Ipswich, Mass, makng our way out to the coast to Rockport and then on to Salem, where I swear my witchy roots are. I'll find out.

I just had to let you know that I'm still here, or rather there...

Hi Christine!

Good to hear from you. I am looking forward to hearing more about Strawberry Banke — I'd heard of it before but saw photos two years ago in Yankee Magazine that really enchanted me.

What a lovely picture! It reminds me of Fall when I was living in the Midwest. I sure miss those color changes. It sounds like you're having a wonderful time! I look forward to seeing all the pictures of your exploits. I envy you--a road trip is the best fun! We miss you--but it's good to know that you're having so much fun.

Thanks Mimi and Sher, It's so nice to hear from you all. I feel like I've been gone for such a long time!
We're in Salem, MA now, leaving tomorrow for Vermont again (wait until I tell you all about Wilcox's ice cream!) before heading over to Albany to catch the train home. I have so many things to share!

I hope you're having fun. I hear fall in New England is beautiful. I've only been there in the summer.
