Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

S and I had a wonderful holiday. We travelled from S.W. Ontario through New York State and Mass to New Hamphshire and then to Maine to spend a few days by the ocean in York and Ogunquit. It was so beautiful. The weather was cloudy but we only had rain one day and we chose to ignore it and drove along the coast up as far as Kennebunkport. So pretty and the ocean was at its best, we had very high waves. I ate lobster, S did not. He hates fish and seafood. We had a great time.
On the way home we drove via the ABC Stitchery shop in Grantham. It was very nice but my legs were giving me grief and as I could not stand for long we only had a brief stop and then we headed for Montpelier Vt for the night only to find there were no rooms so we went on to Burlington Vt and stayed there. The next day we made the trip home a long day and a lot of traffic. We crossed the border around 9:00 p.m.
Yesterday (Saturday) we slept in and had a restful day.
Today is another story all the family is arriving here for our Thanksgiving dinner. My Mom is here and she is helping too. So nice to have such a great Mom. She is the best. Happy holidays everyone.

Loved reading about your trip! Maine is such a lovely place (I would have eaten the lobster, too!).
Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving! I have been saying for years that the US's Thanksgiving should also be celebrated in October....

Great to hear from you! I'm glad you enjoyed your trip to Vermont. The ferry ride is fantastic across the lake, and the views are gorgeous. Take care.
