Whew - I JUST spent the last 15 minutes searching this house, not able to find our DSLR camera with memory card highlighting the stays the last couple weeks or so of our trip...(I had visions that I had left it at an IHOP along the way, and we lost snow/Thanksgiving/NYC pics!) Thank goodness I remembered where I had placed it... ;)
Anyways, we …
We have meandered today. Day of relaxing really. Tootled around the Main Street pottering in the shops. An afternoon stroll and then a leisurely drive up through the hills to the ski resorts. Stunning scenery. Fall is just beginning, the trees are starting to turn. The sun is out and the light wind is bringing an autumnal chill. ...
