You’ll see a variety of photos in this album. Some are the sunsets over Windmill Bay on Lake Champlain at my Uncle Dave’s house and photos of the marina at the corner of New York, Vermont, and Canada. (Fun fact: gas in Canada is something like $8.50 a gallon, so the Quebecians drive down into Vermont to fill up for less than half that amount.) Some photos are of that tie dye shop I wrote about earlier. Then there’s the parade in my mom’s home town of Woodsville, NH, Aunt Jane’s house in Warren, NH with the mountain view and the graveyard behind, Aunt Judy’s house in Bath, NH with the big beautiful property on the Ammonoosuk River, and the aftermath of the wicked surprise storm that blew down off the mountain on the evening of the Fourth and toppled trees all over Aunt Judy’s property with 100 mph winds.
