August 18 – Trip to Keepsake Quilting in Center Harbor, NH Another great day in northern New Hampshire and a great day to visit a great quilting store in Center Harbor, NH. The store has 13,000 of bolts of cloth in different colors and patterns. I estimate that they had over $2,000,000 of inventory not including the hardware items that were abundant. Kathleen was able to get most of what she and her fellow-quilter needed. We spent about 90 minutes meandering the multiple colorful aisles. We worked up an appetite at the quilt store and dined...

Aug 17, 2010 - Steep Hike to Arethusa Falls

August 17 – Hike to Arethusa Waterfall It was a beautiful day for a hike in the New Hampshire Mountains so we headed south 20 miles to the trail head of the trail to Arethusa Waterfall in Crawford Notch. It is described as a 1.4 mile hike of moderate difficulty. In reality, it was a hike from the trail head at 1200’ to the waterfall at 2100’ on a rock strewn and rooty trail to an impressive 160’ high rock face waterfall. We took our time with our walking sticks and drank plenty of water from our 2-liter, backpack bladder water supply. (We...

Aug 15, 2009 - Lake Winnipesaukee, day 4

We spent our last day with the Bargers on the water. Carter and Kathy took us on a guided boat tour of another part of Lake Winnipesaukee. This is really a beautiful place. We tied up at a public dock in Meredith, had lunch, and looked around. Lee and Cheri had ordered lobsters, pronounced lobstahs, and the market said they would be in at 2:00PM. The market is in Center Harbor, so we drove the boat over, tied up and Lee walked up to the store to pick them up. While driving back to the house, Lee spots something in the water and changes...

Aug 13, 2009 - Lake Winnipesaukee, day 3

This morning Lee and Cheri picked us up and we traveled to Conway, NH for a scenic train ride and lunch. We arrived at the station in time for the 10:30 ride. The locomotive and the cars are nicely reconditioned. We sat in the Gertrude Emma, which was the last car in line. Read about the cars' history on the plaque. Clouds were hanging low, so we were not able to view Mt. Washington. Maybe next time. We passed a restaurant that looked good, a place called the Homestead, so we had lunch there. Great clam chowder!! And the lobster roll wasn't...

Aug 12, 2009 - Bad night, great day.

Last night when we got back to the bus, I went on the roof to put the tarp over the a/c. Right then I decided I had to go looking for the cover in the morning. There was no way I could continue the trip with it missing. Either find it, or buy and have installed a new a/c unit down in Concord. Needless to say I didn't sleep very well. I was eating some breakfast at 6:30 this morning when Janet poked her head out and said she was going with me. Another set of eyes would be good. We left at 7AM. The plan was to drive the Honda back to our...
