Today is Saturday, August 13th, and we are in Holderness, NH. We are camping in Bethel Woods Campground which is in a wonderful location.
Yesterday, my sweet, sweet husband took me to Center Harbor, which is where Keepsake Quilting is located!!! That store is as wonderful as you would think it to be. It is just full of fabric and patterns!!
Today, we decided to take a drive around the Lake, which is roughly 100 miles or so. Several of the towns around the lake were way to commercial for us, but there were several of the surrounding towns on the Lake that were great. Beautiful homes and beautiful scenery.
We have been trying to picnic at lunch time every day if we are doing day trips out in the car. Today, we found a beachside picnic table in Alton Bay. We took our peanut butter and jelly and made good ole' sandwiches. It was so nice to sit right beside the water and watch all the boats.
And, guess what! Van let me go back to Keepsake Quilting today on the way back. When we got home last night and I was matching some of these fat quarters to my hexagon flowers, I realized I would like to have a few more choices. Let me say that between yesterday and today I think I have plenty of choices. My spending money is about gone.
We are staying very close to Squam Lake, which is where On Golden Pond was filmed.
We have been trying to be thrifty with our time in hopes of being able to go into Prince Edward Island. We had not planned for sure to do this because of our limited time, but decided yesterday that we will go for a week or so. We plan to drive it because of the cost of the ferry. Our next stop after here will be Dixfield ME and then Bangor, ME. After Bangor, we'll head to PEI. Then comes the part of the trip we are really wanting and that is down the coast. We'll hit Bar Harbor after PEI and then meander from there.
Hope all is well with everyone.
