I had to take a double take. I first thought it said ‘Venal’ & thought that that was quite ‘ballsy’. Then, I got it right.
WOW. Was I impressed. In ‘New Hampshire’? I am sure that a majority of folks in New Hampshire have NO IDEA what the word means. Many may even claim that they have never heard it (which, however, is unlikely to be true).
WAIT FOR IT.
It was on a white, U.S. GMC mid-size SUV.

Yes, it was INDEED an ‘Equinox‘.
Get it: Vernal Equinox, i.e., Spring (March) Equinox, ‘vernal‘ the Latin for ‘Spring related‘.
How clever. I was so impressed. I have NOT seen that plate before, BUT the Equinox was on our beach. I had a dog with me & it was past 10am. So, I didn’t dare venture to the beach. Dogs are not allowed after 10am (I think (or maybe it is even earlier)). It could have been somebody visiting a neighbor. I would LOVE to meet the owner. I think it is a Mum. There were only two vehicles parked & I could hear lots of kids on the beach.
My hat off to whoever came up with this. Bravo. Thank YOU. Made my day.
Here is the supreme IRONY. In September 2020, in EXACTLY the same spot as this Equinox was parked I saw this. Now that lacked class.

It was uncharacteristically warm on New Year’s Day and as such we ended up in Hampton (as in the beach) for some lunch. I invariably take the scenic route to Hampton — i.e., following the ocean — than the fast (and tolled) I-95. This means I have to go through Rye and ‘Brit Bits‘ is in Rye. And, of course, I had to stop.
It was, being New Year’s, closed. And this was the WINTER display. Very different to what they usually have in the Summer. That is UNDERSTANDABLE.
Other than the 1930s (methinks) MG in the showroom there was, for a change, nothing tempting. But, I was impressed by the prices.
It has been quite the Summer up here in New Hampshire. We, as usual, went down to our beach (slightly late) around 6:15pm. We rarely go earlier. It is too hot and ‘non-peaceful’. I did my usual swim to the swim platform and back. [You can just about see it, way to the right, in line with the furthest boat — in the ‘black’ slick of calmer water.] By 6:45pm everybody was GONE. Just us. I read a bit. Took a quick snooze in the heat. Then I picked up my camera and looked through the lens. This is what I got — yes, albeit, after I kicked down the exposure compensation a few notches. This to I captures what Summer in New Hampshire Lakes Region is all about.
