Here are the sign pics I took along our way through a New England fall. I think it’s clear where most of them were taken.
The next stop on our journey was at Stockbridge, Massachusetts. The Berkshires were beautiful driving through on the way.
We got to the Norman Rockwell Museum just in time to view the wonderful artwork before it closed.
The last time I was at the museum I actually met the man that posed as the little boy in this famous piece.
Our friend, Sharon, works at the museum so we had arranged to go for dinner together. The beautiful fall colors were evident everywhere.
We had such a good time with our friend, but then had to bid farewell.
In this Norman Rockwell classic, the same man that I met posed again as the little boy in the scene.
We were pleased to find some pretty colors in Vermont as we continued to head West. We were a little late for the most spectacular colors but still found some gorgeous spots.
All the old churches are so pretty in these little villages.
We saw lots of maple syrup everywhere we went, and I think Sarah bought some to take to Texas with her.
After a couple of days in Boston we headed West to find more fall colors.
We saw a statue of a soldier and then a real one who answered some of Paul’s questions.
I enjoyed seeing this mother and baby resting by the river.
This is the Caesar Robbins House, near Old North Bridge, built by a former slave in the early 1800’s.
Sarah was impressed by the huge leaves that had fallen in the area.
Then we had a great lunch at the 1716 Colonial Inn of Concord — I highly recommend it.
Before leaving the area we stopped by Walden Pond, of course.
Last fall Paul and I made another trip to Boston in order to see Sarah and the fall colors before she moved away. We weren’t disappointed.
She took us for a short walk along the river and the colors were beautiful.
We stopped by her office at the Micheli Center, where she was working on 3-D motion analysis of baseball pitchers.
We always love eating on the North End — where the Italian food is so good!
