Roll 52 – Goals, dreams and regrets

Goals are important to life. None of us will ever get anywhere without them. For many of us though, goals are subsumed by the mechanics of daily life. They decay into dreams, and finally into regrets.

Week 17 -Amtrak

I continue to shoot for my 52 Rolls project, but I have not found the time to develop much.  These are posted as Week 17 while I catch up.


Beth was excited about riding the Acela for the first time in her memory.


Then it broke, dumping us onto another train in Old Saybrook, CT.

Plum Island Turnpike (2016.01.25)

Today was a wonderful bright day with temperatures in the mid 30’s. The recent coating of snow and ice has left many photographic possibilities. With a hour or two to kill this morning, I headed to Plum Island.

The area around the impossible barn was fabulous, with chunks of ice heaved up around the beached docks. I vowed to catch it on my return. I proceeded onto the island, making it just to Sunset Boulevard before the RFD was dispatched to a bad motor vehicle crash.

I turned around.

I made it back to the mainland. Reports from the scene were of a minor crash, so I turned around again, back to the island.

The gatehouse at the reservation was unstaffed today. I made it as far as Parking Lot #2 before the RFD was dispatched for a second call. Back across the turnpike I went.

I finally made it to headquarters in time to see the engines returning, and I never did stop to photograph the impossible barn. I hope the weather is nice tomorrow.


Perfect storm (i366 2016.01.24)


While the mid-Atlantic states were having a blizzard, we had the perfect storm. We received less than an inch of light fluffy snow, just enough to make things pretty. I cleared it away from the walk with the leaf blower.

Ambulance Parking (i366 2016.01.20)

 Long day at work. 17 hours non-stop.  
At one point I did get to drive through the garage, but we didn’t stop long enough to put the truck in Park.

 We had furniture delivered. Chai was a bit freaked out.   

There’s ice in the mighty Merrimack; winter is finally here.
