Indian summer drive

Another beautiful day in New England. We started of by going to an apple picking orchard. We didn’t do much apple picking, but we ate some 😉 and walked around, enjoying the colours of the trees. Crowds came to pick apples, and looked like they had a great time.
It’s also pumpkin season and I enjoyed taking photos of pumpkins, gourds and other squash, some with incredible shapes, others with luscious colours.
 

Gourds or squash?

Then we drove around New Hampshire and enjoyed a stop at Keene, where I could satisfy my circle mania. Lots of squared circles coming up!
 

We also stopped by this lovely little lake
 

Lakeview

 
Bob spotted these two monarchs fluttering by and Norma and I took photos. I grumbled a lot because my camera, which I love most of the time, is slooow and butterflies tend to be fast!

All in all another wonderful day! Thank you Bob and Norma!

  1. Fascinating photo of the “gourds or squash,” Glad the monarch sat long enough for that shot. But, the photo that gives a catch to my heart is the one at the lake with the colorful changing leaves of fall. My memories of a trip up the east coast many years ago was glorious even though natives told us we were a week or so early for “peak” season. New Hampshire was the most spectacular for us that year.

  2. Your pictures give me a touch of your gourmandise for life. It’s good to enjoy your journey with your. Turning out sixty, I thought of all things you said about age and it made me feel fine. Love.

  3. Spectacular photos, Claude! So typical of autumn in New England.
    We have a Pumpkin Patch on the island and I plan to get down there tomorrow to do some picture taking.
    Loved the entries and photos on Millie’s site when you got to meet her.
    Really enjoyed that.
