Back Home

IMG_0905Yesterday was another dreary day, and we spent much of it on the road. I managed to bring home a cold with me, which was not really my intention. We definitely saw more colors in the foliage as we traveled north, but I wasn’t able to get very good pictures from the car. IMG_0913

 

You can see how dark it was from the pictures. All morning we traveled through rain and wind, and a little bit of fog, but by later morning we were finally driving out of the storm a bit.

The previous evening at the hotel, we ordered a hot sub from a local sub shop. IMG_0920We had a great brainstorm and ordered a cold sub to take on the road with us. We stopped at a rest area on I-78 in Pennsylvania and enjoyed a yummy lunch. It wasn’t a quiet spot with all the traffic zooming by, but it was just nice to be out of the car for a bit.

We were out of the car for about 20 minutes when we noticed those black clouds were catching back up with us. So we decided we better be moving on!

Finally, we were heading down the final street to our house. A lot of leaves have turned and fallen while we were gone. I don’t know why, but leaves blowing by on the road always makes me think of Halloween.

The trees are turning quickly now, but the temps for the upcoming week still look pretty nice – in the mid to high 60s. Looks like we may possibly make it to November without turning on the heat!! I sure hope this is a foreshadowing of the upcoming season! Smile

  5. Glad you had an uneventful trip home. Was wondering how going through VA went, with the tornadoes and all.

  6. Jessica, Just found your blog on Google +. We are in some circles together. Beautiful photos, I miss the northern leaf changing colors. Born in PA but now operate an RV Park in San Antonio, TX. Maybe we'll get to meet someday if you make it out this way. Look forward to reading about your travels and beginnings of full timing.

  10. Always nice when the transition seasons last a little longer and save us money on heating and cooling.
