Before we made it there we had to stop in several places along the way. Tom had pickups and deliveries to make in Massachusetts and Connecticut. I would have liked to stop for a visit with my friend Doreen Martel, but Tom had a precise schedule to maintain because, "These union guys, if you get there when they're on a break, you wait an hour and then you're screwed!" Well, that just isn't Tommy's idea of fun, so he had to hit Fishkill, NY at exactly 7AM and Waterbury, CT at precisely 8:30AM and hell would break loose if we didn't get to Lexington, MA at 10AM. Such is life when you travel with Tommy!
|Can you see her back there?|
|Zooming in didn't quite capture the beast|
|The moose liked nibbling on tender maple branches|
I had only seen a moose once and that was at Yellowstone Park several years ago and from much further away. This was way cool! We believe this moose may have been a girl--no antlers--and possibly a yearling. Whatever she was, she was not at all put off by us being there. She had her snack and moved on at her leisure. T'is a good life for a moose!
The view, however, was what truly captured my attention. Lovely beyond belief! I couldn't get enough of it. Tom had to drag me away and he did because we had a long drive ahead of us, 6 hours--oh boy. We had to be in New Jersey at precisely 6PM for the Christmas gathering at Kip's Castle. Here we go again!
