This weekend marked the one year anniversary of the purchase of DH. As I detailed in a previous post, I purchased my 2012 Accord with 42,192 miles from my local Honda dealer last April 30th, and picked it up on May 1st. In that time, the car has been driven 17,243 miles, has been to 9 states, countless trips to the Jersey shore, survived a blizzard, and helped me produce many great memories.
This weekend, however, was quiet, with not much in the way of planned adventure. I had to work Saturday afternoon, so in the morning I mostly ran errands, although I did make a detour to a cool little car show in Washington Township, NJ. The 8th Annual Classic Car Show takes place at The Olde Stone House, a home built in 1736 that is now a museum. On the same property is the original Bunker Hill Presbyterian Church (1869) that was transported onto the current site in 1986. The little assemblage of historic buildings also includes the Blackwood Railroad Station (1891) and the Quay House (1825). Proceeds from the car show go toward paying for the maintenance and upkeep of these historic buildings.
I had a great time at the car show. After work, I departed for my family’s shore home where I spent Saturday night. The sunset was nonexistent, as a heavy cloud layer obscured the view. Still, I was able to snap at least a few shots of the Accord for its anniversary.
I still have a hard time believing that it has been a year since I bought my car. The Accord has been terrific. It is very comfortable for long distance driving, but provides enough power and handling for those times when I want to drive with some fervor. It has been a year filled with lots of great memories, and here is to another year, and many, many more good times to come.
Thanks for coming along on another ride in the Voyage of DH.
‘Til next time.
