As we got near home at the end of our ride, we stopped at the Perley Oak in Laconia, NH. Speaking of yester-years, this white oak is estimated to be 400 years old. Lately, there has been much debate about whether or not to cut the tree down. The city is afraid of some branch falling and hurting someone. You know-afraid of liability. There are warning signs, so I hope that will be enough to keep people away and enjoy it from a distance. It's a beautiful tree, that still has leaves, with much history. Let's hope it makes it to 500 years.
And so, the Shot of the Day...

And here's hoping we make more time for leisurely drives.
