    ... morning we walked for an hour, exploring the trails and every evening the sun broke through just enough for spectacular skies. I had the place entirely to myself and it was perfect.

    It was rainy and cold both mornings, so we stayed in and I read while Addie napped. But we got a couple of hours of no-rain/some sun both days so we did a little adventuring. Monday we hiked in the White Mountains and Tuesday we drove up into ...

    ... that day.

    After the great exercise, Brian decided to make homemade pasta. Tony and Michelle had a pasta maker and Brian showed them his technique for making pasta from scratch in a very short amount of time. We made two types of sauce: a tomato based sauce and a pesto. Both were delicious.

    We had a great rest of the evening watching TV on their projector screen ...

    A special visit with a girlfriend after 36 years!

    A travel blog entry by heavenonearth on Oct 04, 2014

    Debbie and I have talked on the phone from time to time, over the 36 years since we got out of the Air Force in 1978 but... I never thought I'd find myself just 70 miles from her home in Massachusetts!!! She was SO SURPRISED when I called her and asked if we could stop by for a visit!! Spending time with her was absolutely one of my favorite experiences on our ...
