We're Okay

We are okay and home safely....

We spent our entire trip worrying about the fires back at home and we could not get away from the news of it - as it was on all the channels, radios, and on the front page of all the newspapers in all the cities we visited. Our cell phone was constantly ringing with news and information. Many of our friends were evacuated.
We came home to a dirty house full of ash pushed down through the chimney and cracked windows by the 70+ MPH winds... and back in our lives again was that smelled of fire and hazy brownish air... But we came HOME TO OUR HOME and that is what counts....I feel horrible for all those who have lost thier homes and belongings, Our prayers go out to them!

Vacation Plans in the Works

...click on anything in purple to learn more...
So I think I have got just about everything booked that we are going to book for our next trip. AND I CAN'T WAIT!!

We are headed to New England... first up Boston... our friends work at this fabulous hotel out there and got us a great rate. We are staying there two different nights.... WOO HOO! We will be checking out the Freedom Trail, a walk which has all kinds of great historical buildings and sites on it.

Then we head to Cape Cod, not sure where we are staying there... there is plenty available since it is off season. So we will take our pick.

On our way to the Cape we will stop at The Plimoth Plantation (spelled correctly, I promise) this place is really cool, there are actors dressed and in character as if they are living in 1627. There is also a replica of the Mayflower there that we will go on.

The next day we are going to drive west to the haunted Lizzie Borden House. I have been reading a few books on the Borden murders. No! we aren't staying there...scary...Later that day we will travel down to Newport, RI and we will check out some of the old mansions out there.

Then our next destination, Schenectady, NY. This is where my mother's side of the family is from. We will see my Grandmother and Grandfather's family and the homes they grew up in. We will see the house my Grandpa built and the curch he married my Grandma in. :)

I can't wait - the leaves will be changing and we will enjoy the beautiful drive... I hope it is not too cold... Burr

...so this is the run down - I promise to post a TON of pictures when we return... not leaving for a few more days. I better start packing and I need to buy a good warm coat! Not much of a need for one here so I don't own one... yet.
