A Walk Around The Bailey’s Homestead   3 comments

We arrived in Grantham, New Hampshire August 18th, where we spent a few days with daughter Kate
and her family. In between some misty rain showers, I spent some time walking around their 17-acre
homestead. It’s a beautiful place — so peaceful.

LOVE In LOVE Park   Leave a comment

Our visit to Philadelphia was short as it was an overnight stay between Richmond and Graham, New Hampshire. 

No Philly experience is complete without snapping a photo in front of one of The City of Brotherly Love’s 

best-known landmarks: LOVE itself.

The sculpture by Robert Indiana is in John F. Kennedy Plaza — better known as LOVE Park — just northwest of City Hall. 

It was first installed in 1976.

Quechee Gorge In Vermont   2 comments

Quechee Gorge (8/18/21) — Image by kenne

While visiting daughter Katie and her family in Graham, NH, we explored nearby Quechee Gorge State Park.
The day was misty, with the sun occasionally shining through the clouds.

Located along US Route 4, thousands of visitors stop each year to take in the breathtaking views of the Quechee Gorge.
The park’s focal point is Vermont’s deepest gorge, formed by glacial activity approximately 13,000 years ago.
Visitors can look down at the Ottauquechee River, flowing 165 feet below viewing points along Route 4.
