..............a snippet from that wonderful poem.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Robert Frost - Pub. 1916

After spending a few lovely days in Vermont, western and northern New Hampshire,
and the seacoast, we returned to Manchester, Bob's hometown.
Having lived there for a few years long ago, I've seen a lot of places of interest
in and around the city, but one I really enjoyed going back to, just short ride
from the city, was the farm home of renowned and much-loved American poet,
Though very hot, it was a perfect afternoon to stroll here for a little while
taking in the country views, fruiting trees, birds chirping. . . . . . and only a
few other tourists.
I'm home now and have lots to catch up with including comments - I'll
stop by soon!
These August days of overwhelming heat are uncomfortable and tiring.
Our travel back to Raleigh was exhausting with delayed, then canceled, flights
due to storms . . . . . . . . and arriving home at an ungodly hour! I need to catch
up with sleep and chores. Laundry is done, ironing awaits.
Garden is parched and sad looking, must water deeply today with no rain due.
Bird feeders need washing and refilling. I'm now kitty sitting for my neighbor
for the next two weeks.
So lots to keep me busy - but I'll be back here soon with more of the
great New England trip, including a fabulous visit to a favorite blogging friend,
discovering some lovely places to eat, a little shopping. . . . . . and a wild ride!
