I have always decided on “The Road not taken” by nature. I’ve always believed that there is more to life then the end of the journey but rather the journey itself and what you may find along the way that you weren’t anticipating. This is how I felt while in WV. It was a wonderful journey that is still going on…

The Road Not Taken
Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I–
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.


Root beer float at the Frosty Top in Huntington, WV

This is the wonderful frosty goodness called a rootbeer float. It was one of the best things I’ve ingested I have to say. Made all the better by the best tasting onion rings I’ve ever had!

Now I’m back in Maine. Left WV yesterday at about 9:00 am. Got home around midnight last night. Was a long journey but was so worth it. I met some wonderful people along the way. Got to see my aunt and uncle who have been together 35 years and are wonderful with each other. I really didn’t think there were any couples like that left. It was a pleasant surprise and gave me a lot of hope. The local people I met in West Virginia were wonderful folk and very friendly.

Got to see many things and take a lot of photos of which I’m going thru now editing and posting. Will probably take a few days and will always have a few here and there that I will post as time permits.

That’s all for now.. should be posting a photo or two for the next few days.

until next time
