Back in June, my husband and I managed to get away for awhile. It was the first vacation we had taken in awhile that had no real agenda. Other than a few hotel rooms booked ahead of time and a 10K race in Vermont we had nothing else planned. We took our time driving over to Vermont. The first stop was in Erie, PA which led to going to the Seawolves baseball game. It was a beautiful night for baseball. We ended up sitting in the front row almost directly behind home plate. Next we stopped in Albany, NY for an evening. Exploring the state capital was nice even if the weather was threatening rain. Three wonderful days in Vermont followed. This is where we did our 10K race. The Crowley Road Race was fun but tough. There really is no flat land in Rutland so it was a pretty hilly course. Next we explored Maine for two days before heading to Providence, RI. I loved Providence and the short amount of time we got to spend in Newport. I got to stop in Connecticut to visit with a friend. The time there flew by and before we knew it we were heading back home. It was a wonderful getaway and I did a pretty good job of being a vacationer and not a photographer. Snapped a few images with our point and shoot but I did pull out my camera a few times. Below are a few of the images from the trip.
The view from our window the first night. While not the prettiest lighthouse I still like it.
Not sure why the rubber chicken was hung on the netting.
The Egg convention center in Albany.
A beautiful view in Vermont.
A lighthouse in Maine.
Even though it was freezing I played around with the crashing surf.
Mike snapped an image of me trying to get low enough for the image I wanted to make while in a dress.
A foggy night in Maine. Got this image after dinner.
