We’ve finally reached our new home state! Last night we arrived in Keene, New Hampshire, about 35 miles from our new home. It amazes me how quickly we were able to travel through five states in one day. Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. All in about 8 hours! We even had a leisurely lunch in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, where we enjoyed a gluten free burger and fries at Red Robin.
I took a few pictures along the way, but not many. A couple of the states we passed through after dark but I’m sure we’ll make it back there to do some more looking around eventually.
Pennsylvania is pretty, but the parts we were in seemed very remote. Little shopping, difficult to find grocery stores, etc. Kind of “back woods”. Would be a great place to vacation though, if you wanted to get away from the busyness of the cities.
I love all of the beautiful churches.
I liked this part of New York state (southern) much better than where we had been in Pennsylvania. I’m not sure why, it just seemed more open and airy.
I believe this bridge took us over the Hudson River…I couldn’t find a sign, but Tony said that’s what it was, so I’m going with it!
Gorgeous skies over the river.
Our 9th and final toll of our trip. I think we totaled about $100 in tolls.
I’m pretty sure this is a Connecticut sunset. I was going to be very diligent and write little notes after each photo along our trip so I would remember where each one was taken. But you know how that goes!
What is up with these dogs wanting to snuggle into Chloe’s cat bed? This time it was Romeo. Guess when we get settled in the new house they’ll need beds of their own.
I’ve talked my husband into staying one more night in Keene, New Hampshire (in a hotel). Thank goodness! I need a break from camping where there is absolutely nothing to do. I’m not good at doing nothing!
We haven’t decided where we’re going to camp for the next week or so until our house closes. There are only two choices. One an hour from here and one in northern NH on the border. We’d like to avoid the northern one if possible. Wouldn’t it be a shame if we just had to stay in a hotel for the remainder of time? 😉
So today, we’ll do laundry, and shop on Main street…Yay!! When we drove in last night I was thrilled and relieved that Keene is a very nice town with fantastic shops, really interesting restaurants and big store shopping as well. The best part is that it’s only about 30 minutes from our new home. If you remember, this is my first time on the east coast. I haven’t even seen our house yet! That’s on our agenda for today, as well.
So stay tuned, I plan to take lots of pictures today!
