Nov 5, 2013 - We're Home

No pics this time...just wanted to let everyone know we're home! We spent 4 days in NJ with Glenn's family and arrived back here last night. We are so fortunate to have been able to make this big trip, about 9,700 miles, and also so fortunate to have friends, family and our home waiting for us.

Aug 1, 2011 - Yes we are still alive and well in NH

In response to several inquiries, yes we are alive and well, and still in New Hampshire. The Bluffs is a great place to relax and spend the summer, lots of activities and nice people, but we haven't had a lot of exciting things to report. Rich gets up everyday at 5 AM (I agree, not very relaxing to me either) and heads off fishing. I go for a 2 mile walk, sometimes taking Lissa. I do the crossword, read, sometimes go to the pool, or work on a mosaic project I brought along. Rich is back by noon, we have lunch and in the afternoon go to...

Jun 20, 2011 - Freedom, New Hampshire

Left West Virginia, stopped in Saratoga, NY to visit Chris and his wife Gia and her family. Ate, drank and made merry and finally made it to The Bluffs campground on Danforth Pond/Lake Ossipee. It's a nice drive across Vermont and New Hampshire, took our time on the back roads. We put the canoe down by the lake and set up camp. It's rather nice knowing we don't have to pack up until October. Fishing, golf and day trips should fill our time when we are not relaxing by the pools. Lissa gets her stitches out Tomorrow. We'll be in touch when we...

Jul 26, 2009 - Wolfeboro, NH

On the opposite end of Lake Winnipesaukee from Meredith is the lakeside community of Wolfeboro, NH the "oldest summer resort in America". It makes the claim because in 1763 Royal Governor Wentworth's family began building a summer estate and soon after other wealthy families followed. Lake Winnipesaukee is the largest lake in New Hampshire and the spring fed lake is the 6th largest contained within a state boundary. The town centers around Wolfeboro Bay where docks, a park, restaurants and shops surround the water. On Main Street you can...

Jul 22, 2009 - Meredith, NH

In the northwest corner of Lake Winnipesaukee is the charming lakeside village of Meredith which we visited today. As with all the communities surrounding the lake the views are enchanting with the quaint town nestled at the foot of the hills and mountains. We stopped at the Mill Falls Marketplace which has three floors of shops arranged around a center staircase with two stores and restaurants per floor, makes for a crowded stairway. Outside is a Ben & Jerrys ice cream store where we had an afternoon snack.

Jul 19, 2008 - Freedom, NH

On Saturday, we drove from Stowe, VT to Freedom, NH. We made a stop in Montpelier, VT to see the capitol … a beautiful building; also, the surrounding, historic, state-owned buildings were cool along with some funky, bicycle art. Then, in Bretton Woods, NH, we checked out the Mount Washington Hotel and Resort, a great 1902 hotel in a spectacular setting. In Freedom, we stayed a full week at the Bluffs RV Resort; we spent a week there and only left the resort for one day … it was like being on vacation from our traveling vacation. The Bluffs...
