With the New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theater fall seasons wrapped up, my husband and I jumped at the chance to escape from the city for a few days. We chose to head up to New England since we know and love the area, and getting there is fairly easy via Dartmouth Coach.
The views on the lake where my mom spends every summer were a wintry mix of hazy purples with dots of late fall orange foliage.
And the autumn light (seen here from a covered bridge in Woodstock, VT) bathed the landscape in a shimmery glow.
Fallen leaves and bare branches…
Made it seem like Thanksgiving is just around the corner. (Or perhaps it was our TWO trips to the fabulous King Arthur Flour store in Norwich, VT that whet our appetite for holiday baking and celebrating!)
In any case, we certainly were very thankful for our little escape!
