Widcations ……

…… is what I call vacations with other widowed people.  And I’ve had a great couple of weeks with two great friends, who happen to be widowed.

So here, mostly in pictures, are the evidence of my widcations.

 

This is Gracie, enjoying Connecticut.

These are from New Jersey.  We went to the top of a lighthouse on a full moon evening.  It was pretty cool.

These are a beach in NJ.

And a casino.  Believe it or not, this win was from a quarter machine.  Whoop!

Gracie, trying to convince me to buy a bone that was as twice as big as she is.  I didn’t go for it.

My friend Beth, playing with my spoiled dog.

Children love her.  She sometimes returns the affection.

And sometimes she doesn’t.

Look closely and you’ll see a pigeon, evidently waiting for a bus.

Gracie, in Grand Central Terminal.  One of my favorite buildings in NY.

A drugged Gracie, on our way to Maine.

Notice the glassy eyes.  She had a great trip.
So to speak.

This is a WONDERFUL restaurant in Portland, Maine.

Kim D.  …… you must’ve hated this moose.  🙂

Gracie, growling at the “animals”.

I love shopping for Little Man/J Bear.  Totally love it.  🙂

This place was in the middle of nowhere, no cell reception, no internet, but THE most amazing lobster!!

Glastonbury, CT      A cool town with a lot of history.

This is for you, Kelley.  Because …. well, it’s obvious.  🙂    ❤

My cat-dog.  She was a terrific traveler and I loved having her along.  Most of the time.  She really was good.  If you don’t count that time she clawed her way out of the new soft-sided crate that I’d purchased to replace the first soft-sided crate that she’d destroyed.   Sigh ……
