Touring with Terry – Saturday – The Irene Tour – Concord, NH

Up early and off to the car rental agency for our transportation north. A fairly easy drive to New Hampshire. The trees are barely beginning their transformation. Occasionally a flaming red will appear amidst the green. Another couple of weeks and it will be glorious. We passed both Moose Crossing and Bear Crossing signs, but sadly, saw neither.

Concord is a sweet little town – busy with a Farmer’s Market underway. Gibson’s is a lovely bookstore and brought in a substantial crowd. Terry signed steadily for three hours. Afterward we hit the road again for points north. A really easy, pretty drive. Great rest stops on the way – very picturesque.

No more events today, thank goodness.

We enjoyed one of the best meals EVER this evening at L’Amante in downtown Burlington (Vermont, this time). Deep fried squash blossoms, asparagus ravioli, delicious duck; suddenly it all seems worthwhile.

Time for a good night’s sleep. No need to rise early tomorrow for our 1 o’clock signing in Shelburne – it’s only five miles away.
