Fall Vacation

After a fabulous time at the NIADA convention (see previous post), we headed north to see some fall foliage.  Driving through the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut, we saw the beautiful Kent Falls.
A very beautiful and enjoyable walk through the wooded falls area.  Not a lot of fall foliage in Connecticut yet, so we kept driving north to Massachusets.  We arrived in Lenox, where we were to stay for two nights at the charming Birchwood Inn, built in 1766.
This is our gorgeous room - bigger than our room at home!
Lenox was lovely.  So many churches in the area.  I wish I had taken more photos of the churches.  Here are a few.

This one was right across the street from our inn.

Another one just down the street.

There were also some covered bridges in this area.

The foliage was just beginning to turn in Massachusetts, but we heard that it was already very beautiful in Vermont, so north we headed
and were rewarded!
Although the sky was very overcast, some of the prettiest views were of the lakes, with foliage reflected in the water.

On our last day in New England, we visited the Norman Rockwell Museum

and his studio
The Norman Rockwell Museum was outstanding - I highly recommend it!

And last, just before heading to the airport for home, the Mark Twain house in Hartford.

This was our first visit to New England, and we loved it.  This is beautiful country.  I hope we'll be back.
