Hi there. Tuesday has rolled around once again and it time to share our drink related posts over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog.
So this week I am going to share with you some views from last Friday night. OK, it wasn't wildly exciting, but after work the hubby and I went out to do a bit of local sightseeing., Mostly we wanted to see how far along the spring blooming was and how summer looking the scenery was becoming.
It was a beautiful spring evening, actually warm enough to eat outside. Of course I must mention that after our cold May, 65 degree F, 18 degree C temperatures, felt blamy to us.
First stop was the lake near our home, Merrymeeting.
Then we went up to Lake Winnipesaukee, also known around here as the Big Lake. (Mainly because it is the largest lake in the state, second largest in the New England area.)
If the lake doesn't look all that large here it is because Alton Bay is just one long finger on the whole lake.
We were way down in the bottom right corner on this map.
Alton Bay is not the richest area of the lake, but it has its homey charms. (However property here on the lake is still outrageously expensive.) Here's the old railroad station. The train used to run through here and bring people from down south, meaning Boston and the southern New England states, here during the summers. The train is now gone, but along the route there are still some of the old train stations.
Alton has fixed theirs up and it used for tourist information.
And all this viewing left us hungry, especially me, since it was one of those days at work that I didn't get more than a protein bar snack for lunch.
And guess what is right across the street from the railroad station.
If you don't recognize that you might recognize this.
That's my husband's drink in the back but I also had a Diet Coke with my sandwich.
