When riding a motorcycle 600 miles, one must be prepared for inclement weather. We started out in our rain suits because everything was wet. Good thing we did as we hit rain less than seven miles from our house.
It rained off and on most of the morning. I kept checking my phone weather app to see if we could remove those hot suits. Mr. Aitch took off his rain jacket when we stopped for fuel when this popped up. We are the blue dot.
We hung out there for about an hour while waiting for the rain to lighten up and spent the night near Albany, New York.
From Albany, New York to my brother’s house in New Hampshire was a better ride and beautiful weather.
My brother, sister and I went to the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen’s Fair and I met Carrie Cahill Mulligan of cmhats fame.
I’ve never met a knitter that wasn’t nice. She is so warm and friendly and her hats are incredibly beautiful! My favorite one is the grey and tan hat hanging just above my head in the photo. Her hand embroidery is divine.
There were so many things to see that I forgot to take photos. I did fish out my phone for a photo when I saw this quilt by Jane Frenke. I love the bright colors and irregular edges. After doing some research I discovered her studio is about and hour and half away from me Small world.
We also worked on a very challenging jigsaw puzzle that my sister-in-law gave to my brother a few years ago and was never completed. More about that on another day.
Three days of warm, sunny weather and then it started to rain. On the day we left.
This time we spent the night in Scranton, PA. Our boots were damp and Mr. Aitch’s glove were wet so we propped them over the fan in our room while we went for dinner.
Rain showers were in the area when we got up on the last day of our trip so we decided to take our time at breakfast. We donned our rain suits before we left the hotel though the radar was relatively clear. Pop-up showers were in the forecast but after mostly sunny skies and the heat of the day, we decided to get out of those hot rain suits.
Thirty minutes later…
Again – we are the blue dot.
We managed to get off the highway just as the skies opened up. You can see by Mr. Aitch’s shirt that we did get a little wet. We decided to have lunch hoping the rain would once again subside. It didn’t. After an hour wait we braved the rain and headed home.
To mostly sunny skies.
