Autumn Along the Narraguagus

Feeling the need to get off our behinds and fit in some physical activity, Hannah and I went for a walk along the Narraguagus River this afternoon.


A short trail through the woods led to the river.


The trees and clouds reflected beautifully in the water.


I was thrilled to see hot air balloons sailing over the river and hurried to snap a picture before they passed. Hannah raced down to the waterfront to see for herself and tried not laugh as she said, “Mom, those are the balls marking the wires running over the river.”

Huh. Guess I’d better put on my glasses.


A beautiful autumn afternoon with my best girl.

    That looks like an amazing walk. I love seeing your outings into nature! We had temps in the mid 80’s here in Central Va. today…sigh. I want Maine weather!

      Anita, considering that we will be turning on the wood boiler to heat the house within the month, I’d take your Virginia weather!

  2. The river area is a beautiful place to walk, our trees are just starting to turn now. You are as bad as I am , I cannot see well at distance, and always think I am seeing something other than what is actually there, lol.
