Thanksgiving 2012

We spent the Thanksgiving Day holiday in New Hampshire with Bob’s sister, Cynthia, Cynthia’s husband Larry, and Larry’s mother Marion.   Except for witnessing a three-vehicle accident in Vermont on Thanksgiving Day, while traveling Route 9 en route New Hampshire, and wintery conditions for the last 100 miles on our way back home on Saturday, driving conditions were good.  The traffic accident was a little too close for comfort.  I am thankful that Bob and I were not involved in the accident and that there were no serious injuries as a result of the accident.  We encountered white-out conditions on Interstate 86 / Route 17 in New York on Saturday on our way back home.  I am thankful that the first 400+ miles were driven in good driving conditions and that we made it home safely!

We had a great visit with Cynthia, Larry and Marion.

On Friday Bob, Larry, Cynthia, Weezie and I went for a walk at the Ponemah Bog Wildlife Refuge.

It was really cool that we saw a great blue heron, while at Ponemah Bog!

We returned home around 7:00 pm last night.  I hope everyone who reads this had a great Thanksgiving Day holiday as well!

    Hi Linda, I glad to hear you had a happy Thanksgiving. The accident sounds like a close call, glad you made it there and back safely. The bog sounds like a great place to see birds. Happy Sunday!

    Sounds like an exciting trip–glad you made it back safely. That wildlife refuge looks like it would be an excellent place to visit during the spring waterfowl migration.
