The long ride home

I had great time in NH, but it sure feels good to be home in Seagrove. We took two days to drive home and took a slight detour to pick up Jeff's wood fired tray that was in Strictly Functional. It was a nice change of scenery, I had never been to Lancaster, PA before. It was really cool to see the Amish driving their horse and buggies alongside all cars on the road.

This is the outside of the Lancaster Creative Factory, where Strictly Functional was on exhibit. Jeff and I were drooling over the great work spaces within this facility!

One of the plusses for this road trip was that gas prices were down from our last trip in August...

Less than $3.00 a gallon in Virginia!!!!

The other great deal was that lobster was only $4.99 a pound in NH, so we HAD to pack some in a cooler and bring them home.

Our potter friend and neighbor, Phil Pollet joined us for the feast. A great time was had by all!

Now it's time to get back to pottery. The Celebration of Seagrove Potters is one week away and we need to get one last firing in.


  1. Under 3 dollars and lobster too, what a trip. Glad you made it back safely. Gary and I have thought about buying a big brick building in an industrial section and having a shop and home loft, maybe some day, so much room for anything you might want to do.

  2. In your last post you said "trip home" to NH and this post, "trip home" to Seagrove, haha!
    Same with our daughter, when she calls from school I say when are you coming home, when she leaves here to go back to school I say, when are you going home. I guess home is wherever we lay our heads and share time with our family :)
    that lobster? YUM!!!!!

  3. Linda, I think a studio/shop/loft would be a great place to live and work!

    Tracey, Jeff and I feel like we have two homes now... but I have to say when I am in NH I miss my Sophie cat and clay (and our collection of pots!).

  4. I hope you managed to avoid the weather on your trip. It's so much fun to visit other potteries.
    Lobster has been cheap all summer.....what a treat!

  5. Glad you had a safe trip and that you got time with friends and family back east. It's always nice to get back to our own space...seeing beautiful pots along the way is bonus!!

  6. It sounds like you had a great trip. That lobster looks delicious too.


Don't be shy, talk to me... I won't know your out there if you don't!
