On The Road Again

Well, it is way past time for a new blog so I thought i would take you on a trip------

It was last year when my sisters, my brother and I had a great idea -- The last time we were all together for any length of time was too many years ago so what would it be like if we all went to visit our sister who lives in Vermont. After planning and adjusting our schedules and readjusting our schedules we were just like Willie Nelson's song On The Road Again. The only thing we had to leave behind was our brother who was unable to get away. Join us as we travel to East Haven, Vermont.

Leaving Mountain City In The Broad Daylight

Traveling through rolling hills of Virginia

we used our handy GPS whom we affectionately call "Rover"

along with our trusty map

and printed directions from the internet

we traveled through Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.

As we traveled through the night and into the morning some of us even had "cat naps"

before we reached New York and a beautiful sunrise and then a huge fog bank which was like driving through "pea soup".

In Lake George we stopped at a restaurant which advertised a "bountiful breakfast buffet". That, in itself should have given us a clue --- but we were starving and thought any kind of food would be appetizing. Let's just say we won't be stopping there on the return trip home. I did try to call Jesse and Ginger but was unable to connect with them.

After miles and miles of New York and New York and New York we finally caught a glimpse of New Hampshire and then on into Vermont.

As we traveled from White River Junction into Vermont we stopped for a stretch at an ice cream stand where some of us admired these pretty berries
while others had a "two scoop" ice cream cone
or a milkshake
In Vermont we passed pretty churches
Oops same church

beautiful old houses

pretty green mountains


and beautiful scenery

until we reached our destination of East Haven, Vermont. For the next few days we look forward to lots of visiting, eating and sightseeing. We have a very loving family and we all are very blessed.

Stay tuned to this blog -- I am on the lookout for a moose--as soon as I find one you'll be the first to know!

That's it for today!
