I am so excited…we are finally, finally going on a trip to see the autumn leaves in New England. We’ll be going in October, and our current plans include:
**Driving down Vermont Route 100, stopping whenever we feel like it (Ben & Jerry’s factory, maybe?), and admiring leaves of the Green Mountain National Forest.
**Driving the Kancamagus Highway in New Hampshire, stopping to hike a few trails in White Mountain National Forest.
**Breakfast at Polly’s Pancake Parlor in Sugar Hill, NH.
**Driving to Camden, Maine, and having clam chowder at Cappy’s.
**Stopping over in Portsmouth, NH.
**Spending a couple of days in Boston, hopefully visiting my friend Connie (Connie, you wanna?)
**Maybe a pizza at Figs, dinner at some trattoria in the North End, and random snacks
**Visiting BU to talk about their Masters program in gastronomy
**Flying home from Boston, and getting here just in time for the Austin Film Festival
Oh, hurry, October, hurry!
If anyone out there has ideas on things we should try to visit, or dives we should try to dine in, or the like, please let me know!
