With that said: Being on the road again is not completely without benefit.
This past weekend was sunny and warm here in New England, so I went exploring. On Saturday I went down to New Bedford and visited the New Bedford Whaling Museum (no whaling goes on there now – I guess people now have something against clean-burning lamp oil.) Yesterday I wandered seemingly at random until I ended up in the environs of York, Maine. Photos follow.
Pretty day, pretty places. That makes for a good weekend. I should still be around for the fall colors, which are supposed to be pretty striking – right now the sumac, always the first to turn, are just starting to spread traces of crimson across the countryside. In October things should be brilliant.
