We love fall

My lovely wife is a big fan fall. By the way, any idea how far up the side of the van a 5 year old granddaughter can reach?

The leaves have started to turn. Tourists are wandering the roads, looking a bit lost.

Back in my school days, I used to hate this time of year. It was pure torture to sit in a boring classroom and look outside at mountains covered in brilliant color. Now that I’m free from all that, I really make the effort to go outside and enjoy it.

We took the sailboat out on the lake today. Like an idiot, I forgot the camera back in the house. It was cool, but breezy. Rain is predicted for the weekend so we got out while we could.

The best time to plan future sailing trips is while actually sailing. I’ve wanted to sail down the Intracoastal Waterway from VA to FL since last year. We’ve been unable to fit it into our schedule. However, my lovely wife says next fall we’ll do it. That’s only a year away. Of course, a lot can happen in a year, but with no plans, nothing happens.



  1. I guess that's sort of the opposite of a brouse line.

  2. Love the artwork. Looks like autumn has arrived here, also. Leaves are beginning to turn and the squirrels are raiding the dogwoods for berries.

    1. Thanks!

      The squirrels cleaned out my hazelnuts. They beat the bears to it this year.

  3. The pictures look nice.Funny isnt it how having the camper almost finished has made the itch to roam almost unbearable?If you are like me every time you see it your mind shifts what do i have to finish at home so i can roadtrip with it.About time for an overnite trip to sooth the itch isnt it?A test trip to work out any kinks before florida

    1. Definitely have a few more New England trips in the works.

  4. just generally be flexible in your future planning as things are changing

    why not sail from your state down to florida?

    as fuel prices go up and whom can tell what restrictions they might have for future road travel got to consider such in future options

    have a nice day anyhow


    1. It would be a great sail, but pretty time consuming on my little boat. We've talked about putting in on Lake Champlain and going down the Hudson to the Atlantic, then south.

  5. Very, very nice! I'm glad I found your blog!!
