Sep 10, 2012 - Triathalon?

Walked, swam and looked at our bikes. It was a gorgeous day again here at the lake. We walked to church at Weirs Beach then came back took the truck out for fuel and did some groceries. I walked again to Weirs Beach and watched some football while Shirley did her crafting. It was such a nice day I needed to go swimming again. Grilled chicken for dinner and off to bed. It was a laid back day and was something we both needed. On the road again in a little bit. Northern New Hampshire or as the locals say up state. Enjoy the pics.

He was a lawyer and a local politician and...
