The image is from a sketch artist Laurie Jean Kramer gave me, I love her art!! I told her I was going to paint her drawing.. I am not quite done, but I love her so much.

RiverFire in Berlin, New Hampshire

Tonight we headed into the Berlin to see the lighting of the boom piers on the Androscoggin as well see all the carved pumpkins on the pedestrian bridge all a part of RiverFire. We got there just as they started lighting the piers. These pictures really do no justice of the fires, but the pumpkin shots are cool. It seemed that everyone in town was out; Main St was packed and there was a long line to cross the bridge to view the pumpkins. Next year I’m going to carve one myself for the display; I was a little angry at myself for not motivating and doing it this year. Then I realized that I’ve only lived in Gorham for 3 1/2 months and in that short time, I’ve done a lot of things! I won’t be too hard on myself now.

Took a quick hike today with Luka; she’s such a sweet and good dog. I know I go on and on about her, but she really is the best and I feel lucky every day to have her. We chose to go town Pinkham B Road which is the same as Dolly Copp depending on which way you start. The leaves are at the end of the color changing and many trees are already bare, but the leaves out there today were glowing. Absolutely positively glowing.

I rush home from work each day so I might have just a bit of time to take a good forest walk with Luka, we both love it so much.   The last few days have been summer like. Yesterday it was 80, today mid 70’s. Rumor has it that rain is coming tomorrow…alas.
