We are now in Mill Falls Meredith New Hampshire after leaving beautiful Stowe in Vermont, the fall colour had started to fade inVermont, but we were lucky enough to see it at its best on this visit, it is truly jaw dropping. To add to this we also had snow which is one of our most favourite things.
New England seems to look after us on every visit, my husband drives around like he was born here, he never gets lost and is totally comfortable with the roads even in six lanes of Boston traffic, he has a permanent grin on his face, I feel sure that he has lived here in a past life.
As soon as we get off the plane at Heathrow he will have no interest in driving and will be happy for me to chauffer him around. I must say that driving in New England is an absolute pleasure, you take turns at one particular four way junction in Stowe, there are no traffic lights, can you imagine that in the UK?
I can only describe a lot of roads in New England (outside of Boston) as driving in the early part of Christmas day, and the speed limits are so low that once you get used to them they are so relaxing.
This is Ray's permanent face whilst driving, something he loathes in the U.K
