Greetings from the Berkshires!


Amanda and I are on the road for a short tour of Western Massachusetts and a bit of Vermont being that I had been behaving myself on my days off and staying close to home lately and I figured I deserved a little bit of a trip. Yesterday we drove up to the Berkshires and poked around a little bit including a drive to the summit of Mount Greylock -  Massachusetts' highest peak - where we found ourselves smack in the middle of a cloud. A very cold, very gray, very wet cloud! Gee, I wonder if that's why they call it Mount Greylock??  Believe it or not, there really is a massive stone memorial behind Amanda - it's just a bit shrouded.

Today we're off to visit Amanda's friend Darci in Bennington, Vermont where she now goes to college and then later in the day we'll drive over to Cavendish to spend the night before going down to Chester to visit new-found friends there before making our way back to Connecticut Friday evening.

I'm just hoping we leave the cold, gray, wet clouds on top of Mount Greylock!

  1. Actually the misty photo makes the monument look kinda spooky... makes it intriguing.

  2. I love the photo! It could be argued that it is a symbol of the monumental success as the accomplished artist she will one day become!!

    Enjoy your road trip!

    Big hugs xoxo
