Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – October 19, 2016
It seems like the autumn color has been slow returning this year or maybe because I have been ill the last seven months shut indoors I lost track. We just ended having an Indian Summer of sorts temperature-wise. Just the same, it’s arrived here in Exeter New Hampshire and while coming home from an appointment I managed some phone snaps. Bless my husband for being the patient soul he is and making it possible for me to see my most adored season!
Driving in the backroads recently with my husband the scenery was breathtaking. Further inland here in New Hampshire past Newmarket northwest the trees are beginning their quiet but beautiful transformation New England is famous for. I may have missed the whole summer but my soul comes alive during my favorite time of year and all the splendor that it brings.
The nippy night air, the smell of wafting woodsmoke, apple picking, and how I love the Maine Cumberland County Fair to name a few!
The Kancamagus Highway is a 34 mile scenic drive along Rt. 112 in Northern New Hampshire that is known as one of the best Fall Foliage viewing areas in the country.
Next day was our scenic drive through mountain road. This was the main attraction of the whole trip. The railroad scenic drive was for a short time but in car, it included a long time span. As I walked out of the motel, I was surprised to see snow 😦 The sun rays enchanted the entire place. We left the North Conway village at 9.30 am and drove through the Kancamagus Highway for the scenic view of fall foliage 😀
As we drove towards the White Mountains, I was fascinated to see the beautiful fall 😀 Both the sides of the road were covered with dense fall foliage. It was awesome…it reminded me of the scenic beauty that I used to see in films and magazines. Moreover, I felt lucky to see one of nature’s amazing aspects in reality 🙂

Posting via iPad mobile. Autumn is closing fast, a few end of the day views before it vanishes for good beneath the first snow. The week rumbled by nearly as fast. We’ve been in pre-winter mode both at home and work. Home putting the finishing touches on winterizing, pulling in anything outdoors and covering gardens. Work is always busy this time of year being we supply retailers in-store and online worldwide.
This is my childhood stomping grounds of South Portland Maine. Winters here as a child it were a hub of community activity especially Christmas season. Holiday Christmas trees were sold here, decorations hung all around and the frozen pond would be full to the edges with people skating and children playing in the snow.
Today it’s a bit of a somber feeling standing looking at it empty yet beautiful warm memories still hold fast in my heart. Life has gone by in such leaps over the years. To be a child again, the age of eight and once more experience joys born here. One thing I have learned to apprectiate the last few years is each minute ticking by and to find the good in each day rather than focus on any negative.
Aging wisdom maybe.
Just a little Friday funny while out to wish you all a happy beginning to your weekend. Autumn started out with a chilly bang here weather-wise and now it’s Indian Summer again but I’ll take it and get outside while I can. My “blog-fog” better lift sooner than later. How are you adapting to the daylight savings change here in the states? I fight it by buying brighter light bulbs, oddly enough while out today I discovered everyone else must have the same idea as we could not find any anywhere!
Visiting the mountainous region of New Hampshire is always an enchanting experience full of rich history and things to see!
The second half of my trip included the exploration of North Conway village, located in eastern Carroll county of the state. It was the largest village of the town Conway. The old fashioned station was situated in this town. The village came with numerousshops, hotels & motels, cafes and restaurants. However, the weather didn’t allow me to shop for a long time. The temperature was turning negative 😦 😮 it was drizzling 😦 and the chilled wind messed up everything. I could hardly walk 😦 Thus, we visited few stores.
Soyfire Candle shop was the first shop we visited. This shop was renowned for handmade natural scented candles. Since it was fall season, apple, pumpkin, apple cider etc scented candles (fragrances that were popular during fall) were displayed. in different rows. Apart from these, there were other aromatic candles…
