We left Old Forge, NY this morning and continued eastward through the Adirondack Mountains. The further in we got, the prettier the scenery. As soon as we hit I-87, our GPS sent us north on it. I said, “Really? I was expecting to keep heading east on 8.” Mark was just happy to be on a highway again, but when I found out that the GPS was going to send us ninety miles out of the way, I asked Mark to turn off at the next exit. He was skeptical, but he made the turn. As soon as he did, our ETA went from sometime after 4:00 to sometime before 3:00, and the roads weren’t as bad as he had expected. I just didn’t want to waste the gas to go almost up to the Quebec border and then have to come back down the other side to a place not far from us!
I got lots of pictures of mountains and water and quaint buildings:
It was good that we arrived as early as we did because we had some errands to run and when we got back, Mark had a webinar to attend. I also was anxious to return. For nearly a year and a half now, my son has called me on the second Sunday of the month. Recently we also started conferencing in my older sister because she has a hard time getting to talk with him at other times. I had a lot to tell this evening, but so did Jamey. I love getting to catch up with what’s happening in his life. Second Sundays are my favorite!
