Well, my back is healing and it is school vacation! Yes, teachers enjoy every break also, perhaps more than the kids. If they only knew.
I'm on one of my meanders, as I call them. I won't quite make it to Maine, but I have been enjoying some gorgeous weather in MA and NH. It's been raining since I left in NY. I'm taking pictures with my new camera. I've gone digital, finally!! I have to say there is satisfaction being able to know whether you got the shot you wanted immediately. It just might be addicting. I have thought about this for a long time. So I spent a day and a half on Cape Ann, MA. Ate some great clam chowder and fried clams, walked a few beaches and took a lot of pictures, to follow later.
I'm now in N H engaging in my second hobby, genealogy. Spent the day at the archives in Concord, but apparently my relatives didn't let anyone know they were born, married or deceased. I found a few listed but not as many as I expected. I also dropped by the house my gg grandfather owned in manchester. It is now owned by the state. Had a great talk with the head guy there. He is very interested in all the history.
