Weekend in New England

By
Real Estate Agent with Samsel & Associates 0790808

We took a trip to New England this weekend – many of you know that our daughter is a student at UMass and we spend lots of time with her and with our telescope-making friends in Vermont. In fact, we wrote about our trip to the annual telescope convention last summer. 

October is prime foliage season. Connecticut is still pre-peak, Massachusetts has maybe another week to go, but Vermont was fantastic.Image

We paid a visit to one of our favorite spots – Stellafane. For those of you unfamiliar, Stellafane is a National Historic Landmark on Breezy Hill in Springfield, Vermont. It is considered by many to be the birthplace of amateur telescope making. Here is the view from Breezy Hill this weekend.

At the top of the hill is the clubhouse of the Springfield Telescope Makers, founded in 1923 by Russell Porter. Inside the clubhouse, we lit a fire and enjoyed talking with club members.

It was a cloudy weekend, but the Porter Turret, a homemade reflecting telescope was still beautiful with Mount Ascutney in the background.

Wayne & Jean Marie, great photos of the fall colors! I miss the change of seasons we used to have in Canada. Now in Texas the leaves are there one day and gone the next.

What an array of the fall foliage in New England. Our leaves started to fall yesterday, but very few have turned those delightful Autumn colors. Enjoyed your photos of this area...

Wayne & Jean, I think the clouds add to the beautiful photos!   The leaves are truly a color show up in the Northeast.    It looks like you had a great time, and Vermont is beautiful!

Fall is definitely here!  Great pictures!  Today is quite chilly compared to the rest of this past week.  I hope it warms up again!
