Off to the ocean!

Last weekend, we celebrated our 17th anniversary by heading off to Massachusetts. There we met up with my friend Lisa at her parents' house near the ocean, in the beautiful New England town of Mattapoisett.

It was a long drive (ten hours, including stops). We were still chipper at this point!

In upstate New York, we passed huge windmill farms that totally creeped me out. I could not live near these things!! Some were right near farmhouses and they were huge and menacing.

We had a delicious lunch at the Three Tomatoes Trattoria in Lebanon, New Hampshire. I had an eggplant parmigiana panini, while Gordon enjoyed the Italian panini with soup and salad. And then we hit the road again...

Somewhere in Vermont, we passed a very old, very slow pick-up truck!
