Last week I had a little adventure and went on a road trip out to New England. The vast majority of our time was spent in the car, it was rainy for a large chunk of our drive, and it was an absolute whirlwind. But despite all that -- and also because of all that -- it was amazing.
I have never been north of Boston so it was great to see a new part of the country. We drove east from Minnesota through Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio, and then the trip really began once we made it to New York. We wandered across upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and finally into Maine (my favorite). Exhausted, I then hopped on a plane in Boston and flew home. But I will gladly accept being a bit tired after a trip like this. It is worth it.
There were winding roads, perfectly quaint farmhouses, fall colors, covered bridges, lighthouses, crashing waves, laughs, and a few wrong turns. But most importantly, it was precious time and memories spent with my parents. And as I mentioned, there was also a lot of rain. But that just made the sunshine even sweeter when it finally made an appearance.
My camera was always in hand, so these are just a small fraction of my photos. This trip was also perfectly timed to coincide with the Creating Time Capsules class, so my goal is now to create a series of tiny films with the footage, photos, and stop motion images I took along the way.
Now I'm rested up and ready to go on another adventure.
