Iggy and I spent the most beautiful weekend in this cottage at Eagles Mere.

With no cell reception or internet (for my new laptop that came in the mail just before I left!) - we were really roughin' it ... haha

It's nice to just get away, even if it's only for 24 hours.

Especially when you're amidst views like these.

And sun-shiney weather like this.


Today, we drove around a lot.

First, we just took in the gorgeous fall colors.

Then, we went to a small county fair, complete with a wood carving competition.

Then, we drove to another nearby small town for a Freedom Celebration (read: community yard sale with food).

Afterward, it was back to the cottage for some more clams and leftover baked beans.  Mmm, mmm...

    great pics of your pup. my dogs love to do that too and they always looks so silly. I've always wanted to get them a pair of "dog-gles" for long trips like that when they stick their heads out the window. But the hubby says that they look to strange. lol

    anyways, glad you had a relaxing time, but now glad you are back with the new laptop because I am ready for some killer outfit posts as per usual. :)
