Go West, Young Man

It was great to see Gene and Judi again.   We haven’t seen them since the deep freeze in St. Augustine, Florida last January.   After a little bit of socializing at Mike and Peggy’s, we took a short drive to DeLorme’s in Yarmouth so they could see Big Eartha and visit the gift shop.

After a scenic drive back to Mike and Peggy’s it was dinner time.  We heated up the fish chowdah and served it with a nice garden salad and some sour dough bread.  Judi had prepared a tasty dessert to top off the meal.  It was a yummy meal, but the highlight of the afternoon was the fellowship of great people around the table.

Now it’s time to say good bye to New England and start making tracks for the mid west.  We had planned to stop at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, but we elected, instead, to spend a few extra days here in Maine to visit with Mike and Peggy.  We’re glad we did, but now we are going to do exactly what we don’t like to do; travel three back to back days.  Alex will have a fit if he finds out so we won’t tell him, he’ll figure it out soon enough.

Tomorrow we’ll find ourselves waking up somewhere in Pennsylvania, most likely Matamoras, just across the border from Port Jarvis, New York, with New England in our rear view mirror.  The weather promises to be good for our travels, a little hot if anything.  So, it’s off we go, into the wild blue yonder.  We’re praying for an uneventful trip to Michigan.


  1. And we're sure glad you stopped to say howdy again - and to make some of Darrells' yummy fish chowdah. Have a fun and safe trip - see ya in a few months I'm sure.

  2. Have a safe trip. Can't wait for you two to get here..

  3. Looking forward to seeing you again in Indiana!! Can't wait - save us a spot - keep in touch or call us....Jenny and Don
