leaf peepin'

Sometimes you just gotta get up and hit the road.  Get out of dodge.  Chop off your hair filled with heartaches (I now sport a bob.) Let it all go.  Don't look back. We decided to get in the car and see the sights out East.  The leaves are beginning to change colors and it is known that leaf peeping is referred to people who travel to view and photograph the fall foilage in areas where foilage changes colors, particularly the Northeast.   This is on my list to do, so let's get 'er done, as they say.  Off we go ~ no plans or schedules, just our mighty Atlas and some tips off the internet. 

This is also the time of year where the whales come to mate in the area.  Perhaps we'll get lucky enough to witness something spectacular while dining the finest seafood in this country.  I hope to visit the coastline after our first destination ~ Boston ~ and see Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New Jersey and if we feel like it, the Carolinas.  My foot is healed so I can help with the driving.  Hold the fort, boys.  Take care of the pups and birdies.  Be back whenever the spirit moves us and we get a big dose of Mother Nature to soothe our souls.  Off we go into the wild blue (and autumn colored) yonder! xo
