Two of my children, Jen and Chris, live in New Hampshire and I try to visit as often as possible. Jen and her hubby Bob, and Chris and his wife Kristin are all artists with unique styles. Jen is a photographer, Bob ties beautiful fishing ties, Chris and Kristin enjoy photographing my grandson Dylan and they also own a screen printing business.
Whenever I visit, we try to spend at least one day going to different places to take photos. On this visit, Bob drew the short stick for driving duty.
I love New England for all its history; I've visited in every season and it's always beautiful...well... maybe the weather is a bit harsh in winter. This particular mill is one that we tried to see on my previous visits, but never made it. I can only imagine how beautiful it must be with all the fall colors.

What a great day to remember. Bob, (our driver), Jen, Chris, and I (the photographers) spent the
day shooting historic sites in New Hampshire and Maine. This photo was taken from the lawn of what we discovered was a private home in South Berwick Maine across the river from the mill. The owners came out to see what we were doing and were very gracious to let us stay on their property. They even took us to their 3rd floor balcony to get some different shots of the mill. It turned out they they had both worked for National Geographic before retirement so we talked photography for a while.
