There’s a blue mood in Beantown again. The curse that had been lifted for a couple seasons, has descended and enveloped Boston Red Sox fans (which includes this whole city) as the Sox blew a huge division lead and have been eliminated from the Major League Baseball playoffs and a shot at another world title. The weather was pretty gloomy too as our group of fall foliage seekers took a day long tour of the city. Low clouds, fog and a little rain..but it was a day filled with history and education.
Today our driver points the coach North to New Hampshire..one of the few remaining states I’ve yet to visit. The sun is shining which should provide some spectacular vistas of what we’ve come to see; nature in all her autumn splendor. I’ll have my camera at the ready but I sure wish I’d have consulted with my photographer friend, Greg Latza, for a few pointers on how to best capture our colorful surroundings. I’ll bet the first thing he would suggest would be to shoot with something a little better than my 15 year old 4.0 pixel Kodak. Oh well, as Linda says about me; It’s much bigger than newer models but comfortably familiar and mostly reliable.
Ta Ta for now.
PS On our lunch break in New Hampsire I discovered that my cell phone was missing. Used Linda’s phone to call our Boston hotel. They found it and are sending it home so I won’t have to worry about getting any calls for the next week or so.
