My main reason for visiting NH was to see my girlfriend and her family. One of the happenstances for me was the annual sale for Keepsake Quilting and a happy surprise Knitting shoppe (huge) right next door. The "Sale" included both stores. I wasn't aware there were 2 happy stores (for me to peruse). I met another girlfriend (we flew up together, she to see her mum). The three of us had a wonderful, fulfilling time together. Of course my girlfriends became friends too - always a happy day when your friends like your other friends and you can all have a great time together.
There are other shops in the area to see. We walked around the 'town' and peeked in at least a half dozen shops. We walked to the cafe at the bottom of the hill on the lake and had a delicious wrapped sandwich. Sam & Rosies Cafe and Bakery. Decked out in latest Nascar pictures. Progressive is certainly a word I would use for NH food.
Notice the racing flag behind their name.
We walked around the park and the Gazebo where we all posed for pics.
Everywhere I looked there were mountains and Lake Winnipesaukee all around me.
A beautiful, fun experience. One that I hope to have here again.
