It’s Summer in New England. August, as usual, is a steam bath. “Hotter than the old harry”, as the saying goes. Every day, another “scortcher”.
In spite of the satellite news channels, who report that everyone is out of work and no one can afford to purchase gasoline, the roads are jammed with millions of SUV’s, full of sticky children, heading to the seashore. All the beach parking lots are full up and all restaurants have lines with a three-hour wait for lunch.
The good news is that September is coming. That most wonderful time of year. All the little kiddies will be back in school. And the seashore will begin to recover from another frantic tourism season.
To celebrate and help get you in the mood, may I recommend the September issue of Yankee Magazine?
It’s their 70th Anniversary Edition, complete with much fine photography of all the best places to travel in New England including a country village, a lighthouse, a covered bridge and Baxter State Park, complete with a cow moose.
I can just smell the crisp, balsam-scented air!
