My Thirteen Original Colonies

Please enjoy this photo of the lighthouse at Petit Manan off the Maine coast.  I am in amazement that I was able to take a level photo while the catamaran was tossing and pitching in 5-6 foot waves.  

I have a large number of errands to run today and a baseball game to attend tonight, so while I am hopeful that I'll be able to create a full length entry sometime today, I cannot promise it.

This blog title, "My Thirteen Original Colonies" refers to the thirteen states I drove through on this vacation:  Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine.  Whew!

I could also call this blog title "The 4400" as that is the number of miles I put on my car during this trip.  My car also celebrated it's 50,000 mile birthday while on the return drive...it is only 2 1/2 years old.

More later...it's already 9am and I have miles to go before I post...

That IS a fantastic picture.

Just why the hell didn't you stop by for dinner on your way through Massachusetts, is what I want to know.
