Daytripping in the Granite State

Nothing like hitting the road on a fall weekend!  Especially when the destination is the lakes region of New Hampshire.  Confession, as soon as we crossed the border I became obsessed by notion of cider doughnuts.  We stopped at the Old Country Store and Museum, but no doughnuts.  I might be a tad doughnut OCD, but I’m still thinking about them.  I wonder what that says about me?

This is the famous Squam Lake.  Doesn’t it make you want to sink in and just be? I’ve spent a fair amount of time on this lake just tooling around.  It’s one of those places that has the magic to transcend you to lazy mode in an instant.

Along with cider doughnuts (you don’t think that I’m obsessed by only one thing do you!), I spend a lot of time planning my writing retreat.  You know the place that I’m going to buy when I magically win the lottery.  My retreat of choice would be on a lake, but my ultra first choice would be a camp on a lake with a library.  Seriously, check this one out.  I surprised these people got me to leave.

Oh look! A wish tree.  This was created by the participants from an arts retreat, called appropriately Squam.  We also met the nicest blogger while walking around.  Here’s her blog:  Liz’s pictures are way better than mine because she had the benefit or early and late light.  Check her out!

I believe in houses that blend into the landscape.  People in New Hampshire do this well.  There is no fancy-shamzy trying to outdo your neighbors here! Just blend in.  Live free or Die.  (For those of you who are from away, that’s the state motto).

Yes, I love a good road trip.

But, I can’t help but wonder just where I’m going to get myself an apple cider doughnut.  Love those things.

    We just did a little day tripping in New Hampshire, too. My overall impression is there sure are a lot of hiking trails there!
