Opps.. I’m sorry, but first a word from our sponsor! After the commercial break We’ll find out who the winner is!  🙂

The summer weather for late July is really warming up (90s this week) but the good news is these temps are about what we want (well maybe not what we want but the trees like it) Rains are coming but not staying so the trees are happy…

The trees are not happy in Belknap New Hampshire. EAB (Emerald Ash Beetle) click here for website, has the trees in this area at risk to be destroyed! Please remember if you are camping in that area, to buy the wood where you camp at and don’t bring the wood in from home… Also don’t take the wood home with you! don’t take a chance on bringing EAB home with you and spreading the damage. I went camping on Winter Island in Salem over the 4th and I bought kiln dried wood which is safe from insects.

Autumn Advice Foliage Forum

Maybe you’d like to talk about scenic routes or favorite places to have dinner when on the road or a good train ride through the fall colors (or what ever else you can think of). Well I got another domain and created a forum there. It’s called Autumn Advice Forum, what is a forum?

Forums were the predecessor to social media. Along with bulletin boards, these were the way people connected and they are still popular today… Why visit a forum when you have Facebook??

Try searching for a particular conversation or image on Facebook or in your own timeline and that is but one reason. (I can name some more.)

I’d like to share this Cool October morning image of a view at the Flume Gorge trail with you. Maybe you’ll come to New England for a visit.

  1. Your reply was very helpful…after the hockey tournament we were going to spend a few nights in Jamestown maybe Wyndham Bay Voyage Inn and then follow your route north because we have been to Narragansett many times and really weren’t interested in the beach….maybe stop in Newport for a night…..any B&B’s or restaurants you could recommend? And will the foliage to your knowledge be peaking there and north of there?

  2. My husband and I are looking for a few stops for foliage coming from NJ the weekend of Oct 23,24,25 and making our first stop in Providence, RI to see my grandson’s hockey tournament and then we would like to see any foliage that might be left anywhere in New England…..any suggestions????
    Thanking you in advance, Miriam and George Wilson

    • I would say Providence is a good start and then head south to little Compton and Tiverton. Follow it west along the seashore. If you travel with a good map you will find Meeting house lane in Compton and if you take that into the common, you will find the old town hall and a church and cemetery and across the street from the church is C.R Wilbur general Merchandise (general store) and that is a great place to explore.

      Follow 77 north to Tiverton and west to pick up 114 south and then 136 west to 1A and then follow that south or north. To the north you can find nature preserves and south will take you to Narragansett and you can explore a whole day there. Look for conservation lands and you can even do some beach time. There are historical societies that may still have some mansion tours if so inclined…

      I hope this gives you some ideas.

I'd love to hear what you think!
