A drive around Newfound Lake

With foliage season in full swing here in New Hampshire, I thought I would share a drive with you. While the entire drive is only 42 miles (beginning and ending at exit 23 on Rt-93), there is so much to see and do, you really should take the entire day to enjoy it. Map and […]

Mount Washington

Our destination for the day was Sargent’s Purchase, an unincorporated place encompassing the summit of Mount Washington. To get there, we would get to travel through 3 other unincorporated places. The Marshfield Base Station is in Low and Burbank’s Grant and we would pass though Thompson & Merserve’s Purchase and Chandler’s Purchase before reaching the […]

Having grown up in Goffstown, I thought I knew pretty much all there was to know about it. After all,  it was where I learned to drive and  where I graduated high school. But, looking back, I really didn’t know it at all. During my tour of Goffstown several weeks ago, I observed so much […]

New Boston

It has been over 25 years since I lived in New Boston. Like so many other places I have lived, I never really explored very much. I knew about the obvious things such as Dodge’s Store… The Molly Stark Tavern… And the beautiful town common… . I also knew Route 13 follows the south branch […]

Franklin is the 3rd of the 13 cities in New Hampshire I have toured. From everything I have read,what makes a place a city, as opposed to a town, has something to do with how it was originally chartered and its form of local government. Franklin is the 9th largest city in New Hampshire and […]

One of the first neat places I came across in Wentworth was the Shin-Boku Nursery.  To highlight their design skills and featured trees, they have created a stroll garden. I had the grounds all to myself that morning and spent quite a while immersed in the peacefulness which comes from a Japanese style garden. Walk […]

The morning started of foggy with a light mist. I wasn’t too optimistic about the scenic vistas  I knew awaited me. But the fog and mist lent an eerie silence to the pond… When heading out to a new town, usually, I can predict what kinds of scenes I’m likely to encounter, but sometimes I […]

Looking at the map before heading out to Ellsworth confirmed what I thought I already knew. Since Ellsworth falls completely inside the boundary of the White Mountain National Forest, I wasn’t expecting too many roads (paved or otherwise.) Not many roads equates to not many houses, most of the properties in Ellsworth are camps. The […]

As I entered Canaan, I was greeted by another of those wonderful “Welcome” signs. The “village” is comprised of restored homes, inns and churches, plus a lovely public beach on the shores of Canaan Street Lake. As I drove along, marveling at the historic buildings, I kept an eye of the sky. Clouds had  begun […]

As I headed north to Rumney, I thought about all of the places I knew I wanted to visit. Although it was late May, the day promised warmth above “normal” temperatures. By the time I got to Polar Caves, I was hot and sticky. Knowing the average temperature in the caves is 55 degrees, I […]
