This weekend was parents weekend at my son’s school. He is a junior at a boarding school in New Hampshire. This is always a great time of year to go up to New Hampshire, the leaves are just beginning to turn and the colors are beautiful.
We had a chunk of time kill, so, we jumped into to the car and headed toward Walmart. There really isn’t a lot to do in Meriden New Hampshire, and my son needed some bottled water. My husband, the ultimate explorer, decided we should go on a different route than we normally do. Well to our surprise we discovered Saint-Gaudens home in Cornish. It is now a historical landmark. Of course we stopped and wondered around. I took pictures…and we never made it to Walmart.
You may be curious about the parrot, this guy was in the parking lot and evidently he takes his bird everywhere. He even took it on the plane from Washington State and it sat on his shoulder the whole time (hard to believe). If you are not familiar with Augustus Saint-Gauden, he is the sculptor famous for Diana, The David Farragut Memorial, the $20 Gold coin and the Robert Shaw memorial (“Glory” the movie was based on Robert Shaw).
