09-03-2015 Journal–New Hampshire Safari!   Leave a comment


There’s a chill in the night air these days and I certainly know what that means.  It means we have just a month or so before we start dismantling the garden, cleaning and inspecting the heating system, and unpacking all of our Winter clothing. This summer came and went much too quickly.

This week the better-half had two days-off which means only one thing . . . Road Trip!  We made our way westward across Maine and entered New Hampshire just north of Lake Winnipesaukee and proceeded north through the lakes region. We traveled mostly on the back roads where the traffic is light and the scenery is spectacular.

Of course as you can imagine, my better-half required numerous pee stops, coffee breaks, and an obsession to stop at every dirty and filthy antique shop (her term, not mine).  This was the nicest one we saw the entire day.


The roads we chose wound in and around the numerous small lakes and ponds and made for a great ride.  All the while we could see the White Mountains slowly approaching in the distance.


After a few hours we arrived in Conway, New Hampshire which is a town known for it’s never-ending supply of outlet stores.  Normally the better-half could spend an entire day roaming around this area and shopping . . . but not today.  Fortunately for me we both received matching text messages from our home alarm system that reported a motion alarm on our enclosed and locked rear porch.  It was the perfect excuse to leave immediately for home which we did. 

Luckily it was just a false alarm that actually saved me from an addition two or three hours of shopping. All in all it was a great day with a lot of sunshine and the discovery of a little jewel of a pizza shop in the bustling metropolis of Cornish, ME.  If you’re in the area and you like pizza, stop and have lunch at Susie Q’s.  Good food, good prices, and friendly people.
