We just got back from vacation in North Conway, NH. We have been going to the reigeon for a few years but we really found a gem this time and will be going back next year if we can get a time slot! It had everything we needed, kyak, canoes, fishing poles etc and close proximity to hiking and a great little town.
I was sorely dissapointed by the local yarn shop - I had planned on getting a bunch of yarn and working on a new project. But, on the bright side, I practiced my chanter a lot and made some improvements. Getting better!
It was only steps to the little sandy beach and the bugs were minimal and it had comfortable beds! I miss it already.
The sunsets were amazing and the view, sigh.
We went on a couple of excursions into the woods. Willow was having a bit of a tough time because she wants to do everything herself and in this spot there were beautiful pools and tiered waterfalls but a little much for a wee one.
This Diana's Bath. Beautiful spot and a great spot to adventure. It did make me a little nervous for the kids but amazing to see. I can only imagine what it was like to be walking in the woods and just come across a place like this.
More awesome sunsets.
Eliot and his big kid cousin. He and his sister was so great with the kids. Willow just adores him and his sister. I wish they lived closer I would have some awesome babysitters!
This was Sabbaday Falls. This was a little more mellow than the other spot and the kids had a good time tossing rocks and hopping around on the stones.
He is too cool for smiling now. He lived in that hat, love it.
The lower falls. So beautiful.
W spent most of the vacation in the buff. Saved me a ton on diapers but now she is potty training like a puppy asking to go out and pee in the grass, lol.
Fishing off the dock was fun, too. And really shallow so I didn't worry about my little water bugs. The last day a HUGE snapping turtle came right up to the dock and the kids had fun feeding it the rest of the worms. They caught a lot of fish through the week, I was pretty impressed.
On one of the longer hikes they highlight was wild blueberries. Living the Blueberry's for Sal book!
