|Sunrise on Umbagog|
This year, I've really had a hard time deciding what to do. I did sign up for the challenge, but on thinking it over more, I don't think I'm going to be linking up my posts. Life is just too crazy right now for me to commit myself and go to the work of designing and making a button and all that. I had been thinking of doing 31 posts on the topic of memories -- and, although I will probably include memories in my posts, I will again use the topic of autumn, my favorite season, about which I still have much to say!
So let us begin with the last installment of our autumn retreat at Umbagog Lake! This was a Sunday and the day that we checked out, so this will be short.
Before packing everything up to leave, Mr. T wanted to take his kayak out one last time. He got some pretty (if slightly blurry) sunrise photos.
Then we ate breakfast and packed the car. We wanted to leave at ten in time to arrive at a church in Colebrook, NH for the morning service at eleven. En route, we just had to get the picture of this little airport:
We enjoyed worshiping at Community Baptist Church and afterward, enjoyed a nice lunch out with the pastor and his wife who are friends of ours. After a leisurely and most enjoyable lunch, we headed to Vermont to travel down that side of the Connecticut River and eventually back into New Hampshire. It was a nice drive. We got a bit sleepy so stopped for coffee along the way. We then saw my dad at the nursing home and of course, had to make one last stop:
So ended our autumnal lakeside retreat. We were happy to get home and energized for the busy days ahead. So very thankful for this time.
