Just back from a visit to NH, my son and his wife. We had the pleasure of Strawberry Banke Candlelight walk - stunning, glowing, sparkling. Open for a few holiday weekends, there was music, cider, costumed guides, Christmas carols, and so much more. Check out my new page on Portsmouth, NH and Strawberry Banke (an entire town which has become a museum)
We've been to New Hampshire many times for many reasons, but don't think any trip could be better than the times we've spent at the lakefront home of some friends on Lake Winnepesauke.
Docks out front of the cabin...kids splashing...soaking up the sunshine. It's like living the movie, ON GOLDEN POND, which was made not far from here. The screened porch across the front of the house is where all the meals are served. Lounge chairs always on the dock...with boats bobbing beside you. The days seem endless when you lay in the sun...reading, relaxing, visiting with good friends.
Rte. 4 boasts more than 500 antiques dealers in the towns of Northwood, Lee, Epsom, and Chichester.
A weekend visiting our son in Nashua and Manchester was topped by a drive along Rte. 4 and a visit to a half dozen of the shops along the way. I'll add more later.......
Nashua has an interesting main street filled with good eateries, shops, and convenient services. They have a farmers' market at the bridge in summer and this restaurant specializes in wholesome locally grown food for their offerings.
In Hudson you might explore Birch House which is just off Rte.3. Indoors and out are decorated and delightful. So many floral and decorating ideas. I couldn't resist a beeswax candle which gives you hand cream from the burned wax... plus a lovely scarf and a miniature tin bird cage. Lots of fun and the greenhouse outside is a charmer.
