Packing my bags ...
Daughter #2, Miss Claire and I, are meeting in New York tomorrow for a two week "Roadtrip' around the East Coast of the USA. We are checking out colleges for next year. Son #2, Sir Connor, is coming along to spend time with his grandmother. Son # 1, Patrick, is heading back to Australia tonight and Daughter #2, Miss Christine will be resting at home in England with Mr. H.
At least I think that is what is happening. My quandary, aside from the whereabouts of my children, is what to take photos of while we are driving the highways and byways of the East Coast. Miss Claire is a keen photographer as well. We will be driving through Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut...plenty of territory to cover.
If only we had the convertible...
or room to spare for a few chairs, an umbrella, rugs and a picnic basket.
I am sure I will be thinking of that as we pull off the highway in search of food.
Somehow, it just won't be the same.
I imagine we will come across plenty of road signs.
We will be looking for the curious and interesting ones.
In between drives, we will be scanning college brochures and prepping
for interviews. Ten colleges to visit...makes my head spin just thinking about it.
The rest is an open book and I am looking for suggestions!
If you were taking this trip, what would you be looking to
take photos of? I will be checking in and attempting to post from the 'road'.
If you have any advice for this mother who is about to embark on the
college application process, I would love to hear from you!
Best wishes for a relaxing weekend! :)
