We had quite a bit of rain after leaving New York so spent some time just relaxing in a small campground in the boonies. Our feet needed a rest anyway.
We stopped by for a visit with our good friends Chris and Peter in Connecticut. Thank you for your nice long driveway to park our home. It was super to catch up on good times.
We met in the Air Force in New Mexico back in the 1980’s
We stopped for a week in Rhode Island. I think Oregon has counties bigger than this state. A trip to Block Island, just off the coast was fun. I had never seen cars backing onto a ferry before. Back in, drive off was the standard.
We thought this decommissioned lighthouse had some real character.
We both had to give the “Crane Stance” a try.
This home business had quite a few wooly animals. Dean enjoyed giving them a snack. The alpacas had already been shorn.
The garage had been converted to a yarn shop. The owners use the wool from their animals to make beautiful yarns.
We haven’t seen many turnstiles in this country (Gazillions of them in England). The rhododendrons were out in full force.
Those dots in the water are people digging up clams. As soon as the tide went out the area was packed with clammers. After our fishing fiasco last year in Alaska we prefer to obtain our seafood from the supermarket.
I like the way the water tower by the campground was multitasking the cell transponders.
An old WW II fortification has been completely covered in colorful artwork. I can’t imagine how many cans of spray paint it took.
These belted cows are pretty unusual.
Moving on to New Hampshire and Maine.
