Day 27 - Home Sweet Home
Sunday, September 30, 2012
Bill was getting increasingly anxious to get home. Thoughts of mail accumulating, Mom's memorial looming and the construction project on the island had him up and moving early.
We were out the door before 6:30am for the final stretch home to the island.
It was a breeze getting out of the tri-state area on I-95 North that early on a Sunday. The fall colors in route were muted, but ready to pop.
Bill took the wheel by URI in RI, and had an unfortunate turn driving in steady rain. Except for the light showers on our arrival in Crested Butte, this was the only rainfall of the trip.
After an uneventful four-plus hours, we caught an earlier ferry in Woods Hole, MA and arrived in Vineyard Haven around 1pm.
What a great trip! We were blessed with good luck and weather throughout our trek.
There's no place like home, and it's a great luxury to be able to venture away now and then.
With the odometer at 8,876, we turned off the car and gave each other a big kiss and a high five!
