New England Road Trip

 

Back in September, our youngest left for college and finally, my wife and I had achieved the elusive “empty nest”.  I say elusive because there were times when just as one of our adult children was moving out, another would be moving back home again!

A quick selfie, a large empty car, and 500 miles of road ahead of us, we were off!

As much as I enjoy the TV always being connected to a video game, and the sound of people coming and going at 3:00 am on a weeknight, it was time for them to begin their adult lives.

Then we spent a long cold winter watching Netflix, just the two of us; and by spring, we started to think a little activity around the house would be a refreshing change!  Fortunately it was time to bring the college student home.

We had to drive to Maine to get her. so we decided to make a road trip of it.  I have a lot of family and friends we never get to visit.  This seemed like a nice chance to reconnect and enjoy some spontaneous adventure–and that’s exactly what we did!

 

Here is the collection of postings from that trip
