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 […]

As Mother Nature releases us from the grasp of Old Man Winter, newly emerging leaves begin life in many of the shades of fall.

As I was driving by […]

I know I said that I was going to do part 2 of Peterborough this week, but I decided to wait and do part 2 as the last post about my New Hampshire tour. It made sense to me that since I started here, I should end here and bring my blog full circle…starting and […]

Peterborough Part 1

There is no better time to start a blog about New Hampshire than in the fall when the trees are putting on a spectacular show for us all to enjoy. I’ve decided to start with my hometown of Peterborough. I have plenty of pictures from around town, but the point of this blog is for […]
