Autumn in New England


I have just returned from a visit to my family in New England.
One brother is in Maine, one in Massachusetts and the other in New Hampshire.
This picture is taken from the roadside in front of a friends cottage on Merrymeeting Lake in New Durham, New Hampshire.

Below is a rainbow trout.
I would love to tell you that I was fishing in a pond with trout this large, but I must tell the truth.
These trout are used for breeding , and they are in a holding pond at the Merrymeeting Lake Fish Hatcheries.

This next scene was taken roadside when we drove around Lake Winnepesaukee.

The last shot is this tree in Halifax Massachusetts, near where one of my nephews live. I think it's a pretty shape and color, and the house looks typical New England, especially near Cape Cod.

I got to see family and a couple of friends, and I connected with an old friend that I haven't spoken with in years, which really warmed my heart. As always, there just wasn't enough time to see everyone I wanted to, and I have more to tell about the visit, but I will blog again soon with more information. For now, I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do.

So that's why we don't have good fall color around here this year—New England got it all.
