Out and about

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.

Digital photography is addictive, no doubt. I'm sure you will really enjoy your new camera. I'm glad you are enjoying your vacation, my husband is off next week and is heading down your way over the weekend for a game at the new Yankee stadium. I have AMC training in New Hampshire, so won't be joining him. I hope we can get together some time this summer in Maine.

Hopefully you got some out-side time today. Beautiful weather, especially for New England. Hope the shoulder is on the mend.
