There is no place like New England in the Fall. I just returned from spending a week there. Didn't do much sight-seeing because my main purpose was to spend time with my sisters. One sister lives in Windham, CT and another who is a permanent RVer was spending the summer months on the East Coast. But I did get to do some beach walking as we searched for beach glass and polished rocks I hope to have made into a bracelet someday.
I spent a very special day with a friend from high school days. Even though we live 2,000 miles apart, we have maintained contact over the more than 50 years since we both began our working careers at the same bank. Nancy DePietro took me to my most favorite place, Watch Hill, Rhode Island. We checked out the shops, smiled at kids enjoying the merry-go--round that's been in operation for ages and struggled uphill to the path to the beach where we soaked up the sunshine and waves. When she took me to lunch in Westerly, RI, I thought I had died and gone to heaven.
I want to especially mention the fantastic flights, both going and coming home, Southwest Airlines provided. This company is tops in my book for its friendliness, attention to detail and super efforts to maintain an on-time schedule. Way to go, SWA!
Here it is the end of September and I can brag about visiting both the Pacific Ocean, which I did when my husband and I flew to Oregon to meet our first great-granddaughter, Alexia Elaine Perkins, and now this trip to the east coast to enjoy the Atlantic Ocean's charms.
Now if I can just figure out how to squeeze in a visit with my good friend Tami who lives in Port Bolivar, TX, I could add a Gulf Coast visit to my highlights of the year.
