Blue Moon in the Harbor

Still settling in … that means Lou works all day and I settled in nicely on the sofa reading a book.

Had a little sunshine today, but not for too long. Decided not to walk too far for my photo subjects:

First Morning in Camden

We made it!  Arrived yesterday afternoon – took some time to get the car unloaded; have to finish putting everything away today and do some grocery shopping.  The boat is in good condition, and everything seems to be working.  Since this was our first experience with “out-of-the-water-storage,” we weren’t quite sure what to expect. We both commented how it seems like we were just here, even though it’s been more than 6 months since we left for our last cross country journey.

Through Vermont to New Hampshire

After a nice breakfast, we packed up and took the scenic route through Vermont into New Hampshire.  We’re spending the evening at the Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa (and Golf Course) in Whitefield, NH – quite a change from the quiet B&B.

We have a short drive to Camden tomorrow, planning to arrive early so we can make sure everything is squared away with the boat.

Altamont New York

We left Harrisburg yesterday morning for a leisurely drive to New York. We stayed out of the big cities, and spent the evening at the Altamont Old Stone House B&B. We’re the only folks here, so it’s very quiet. Drove a short distance last night into town for dinner at the local Pizzeria.

Took a few photos on my walk this morning.







Saturday at the N-Scale Enthusiast’s Convention

Today was mostly a lounging day.  Lou attended the N-Scale Model RailRoad show and took some photos of some of the layouts.

This one shows an elaborate cityscape.



Here’s another one – showing a sawmill operation.  Two of the local model RR clubs had extensive  layouts on display.  There was also a large swap-o-rama with lots of tiny RR stuff for sale.  We attended the banquet – won 4 door prizes this time!

Thomas the Tank Engine

The highlight of yesterday’s trip to Strasburg was getting to see Thomas the Tank.  In addition to the old steam engines, Thomas the Tank is visiting Strasburg.  The kids are crazy for Thomas, and the lines to board the train were full all morning.  At $18 a pop, Thomas is building a hefty bank account!
