It’s the heart of summer and people are traveling. Some go to the coast with its cool sea breezes and some to the mountains for the fresh, clean air. Of course there are other destinations, such as the hot cities and the rolling countryside. Some people even go to the desert to visit. All in all, this is a time when people are on the move.
My brother and his family are taking a long trip that will (and has) hit both mountains and ocean. They spent some time in New Hampshire’s White Mountains before heading to the Maine coast. Later they’ll head up to Baxter in Maine for more mountain adventures.
They live in the Philadelphia area while I’m in New Hampshire. Notice I said the name “NH” twice. Yep, we had a short visit as they came through. More than that, their son is in the Albany area doing an internship as he prepares for his senior year of college. He drove out last Friday and spent the night at my house. We then met the rest of his family at a restaurant for brunch on Saturday morning.
It was a nice visit, if a little short. It’s nice to see people face to face instead of just on the phone or texts or emails or whatever. It’s also been fun seeing the pictures they’ve posted on FB of places I know well but are new to them.
So that was my smile for the week, family visits.
