Northeast Vacation: Entry 6 (Final)-Pictures and stuff

No matter how grand the sights offered by a vacation, home is always a most beautiful place. Here are some of the promised pics (all credits go to my sister and her Nikon).

Forever beautiful…

**************************************************

Now for a few fun facts and statistics:

0 — Number of hours that I spent behind the wheel.

23 — Number of hours that Jake spent behind the wheel. I don’t particularly care for driving in the first place, so I was more than happy to leave the driving to Jake (a student driver who needed to log some hours), my wheel-happy sister Drea, and my father.

2.75 — Number of books that I read while the others drove. Completed- Black by Ted Dekker and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by R.L. Stevenson. Started- King Solomon’s Mines by H.R. Haggard and Through Painted Deserts by Donald Miller.

2 — Number of times that I wore socks. I’m addicted to my new sandals.

7 — Number of new states that I visited. Delaware is the only one I need to complete the lower 48. I would consider this a brag-worthy milestone, but Jake has me beat, so that ruins it all.

2 — Number of consecutive nights that I feasted on baby-back ribs…another addiction.

2 — Number of times I worked out during the vacation. A few of our hotels had great workout systems, so I yielded to the temptation and actually burned a few calories.

Well that’s it. School resumes in a week, so postings will once again decrease in regularity.
