Final Days of My New York Visit

Beautiful sky in Maine

Last weekend (January 3 and 4) I accompanied my Beacon daughter and children from New York to Sunday River, Maine.  We stayed over Saturday night (January 3) with very gracious friends in New Hampshire.  As we entered Plaistow, New Hampshire, I was struck by how the roads were not plowed.  I guess the residents are used to it.  

The next morning we drove on to Sunday River.  Below are some pictures that I was able to get.  The photo above was taken through the front window of the car.  I took the photo on the lower right because the glistening ice on the small trees was beautiful.  The covered bridge on a converted walking trail was such a nice surprise.

This past weekend, I returned to San Diego.  Both New York and San Diego were engulfed in fog.  After an almost two hour delay in New York, we were off and running....that is, flying.  I enjoyed my visit in New York, but due to the very low temperatures, I was very happy to be returning to San Diego.  The New York temperatures ranged from -3 to 15 and 16.  I hibernated during those days as well as during the six snow storms the area experienced.  Early in my visit, I hung the little seed bell, hoping to get a good picture.  I took weeks, but finally the birds came around.  When I opened the door to take the picture, they would fly away.  However, I finally succeeded getting a picture of the Tufted Titmouse, shown below.

I'm looking forward to getting back to my usual routine in San Diego.  That is, after I thaw out.

  1. As always - it was great to have you around the Northeast. Hard to believe you had been here since Eliza's Confirmation. You will be happy to know that Tyler and I stacked some more wood on the porch in anticipation of our next cold snap.

  2. Thanks. I really enjoyed the warmth from your wood stove.

  3. Beautiful pics! Enjoy your thawing days . Lol! I enjoy reading your blogs and seeing your pics. Love Lori Schuster

  4. Thanks, Lori. I am thawing out. Took a walk to the Famosa Slough (about a half mile away). I appreciate your kind words and your reading my blogs, as well. Please feel free to become a follower of my blog. Love ya.
