Ascutney Notch Farm, Perkinsville, Vermont
Fall in New England
On my Facebook page this week I’ve been posting images from my hometown area as Norma, Finn and I visit family in New England. I mentioned on the threads that we lived in three different communities – Groton, Concord and Westford all in Massachusetts. We emigrated to Nova Scotia when I was 15, so we were on the move a bit, although all three towns are almost touching each other.
There was, however, a constant in my family’s life – as almost the whole time we also had a ski chalet in Londonderry, Vermont. My sister now lives very nearby, so this week while doing the tour of New England to visit family, we also touched base by driving old routes and visiting places I’ve known since my youth.
The foliage in Vermont was at peak this week, and so the image is my sister’s lane in Perkinsville, VT. The trip up was good, although overcast, but today it was a bright sunny day and so during our drive we saw some amazing vistas, but this lane I think is simply fall perfection. I guess because it’s her home it just feels right, and it goes to show that while touring around is fun, the places you know the best have the strongest connections.
It’s fun to do little trips like this, and it will be fun to be home for Canadian Thanksgiving – and in the meantime we’ll see some more sights, but will look forward to the familiar sights of home! It’s always interesting that I come back to Nova Scotia with fresh eyes after a trip.
We live in a most beautiful place!
