Provincetown to Walden to Vermont 

Yesterday we spent in Provincetown, fortunate that the weather cleared leaving a brisk, breezy, sunny day. We drove along the National Seashore, climbed the Pilgrim Monument -- the tallest all-granite structure in the US, it claims; from the top one can see the towers of Boston, 42 miles to the northwest -- and shopped the shops and galleries of Commercial Street. Today was a drive through New England countryside: back around the Cape, up through Massachusetts with a layover hike around Walden Pond, then into New Hampshire a ways before crossing on route 101 through Keene into Vermont, where we landed at a homey bed & breakfast near Chester. The good weather is persisting, and several people have remarked that the foliage color shift is actually a bit late this year, so rather than being 2 or 3 weeks late to see it, we're fortuitously right about on time. Tomorrow we plan more driving through Vermont, then down to the Berkshires back in Massachusetts, a stop in Albany to send my partner on a flight home (he has to be back for work and then a family trip to China next weekend), before I arrive in Saratoga Springs Tuesday night.
Hey Mark!

Great to see you'll be at WFC (in fact, are there already...)

Got lunch plans for Friday? I know you're supposed to book power lunches with movers and shakers at WFC, but I'll buy. :)

Drop by the BLACK GATE booth in the dealer's room. We're the table in the back, next to the dead plant.

Reports of my involvement with movers and shakers are greatly exaggerated, alas. Will look for you.
