Leaving New Hampshire… and I’m so glad I made the trip!

by Hillary

So this is my second to last day in New Hampshire. While I haven’t been able to do as much exploring as I normally would due to Covid-19 restrictions, it’s been a fantastic summer (albeit a few too many 90 degree days with 100% humidity). I also had a chance to say goodbye to Paul and Betsy Laurent who, after 8 years of owning Newfound RV Park, sold the park just last week. They were amazing RV park owners and it’s bittersweet to see them go but I wish them the best in their new endeavors. I’ve also had time to see old friends (I’m going to miss you Jenn! HUGS!) and I even reconnected with my brother a bit.

I thought I’d share the last few pictures before I start the next leg of my journey. WESTWARD HO!!!!! (Actually, that would be SOUTHWARD HO!!!)

Teddy loved to take a quick swim every time we hiked at the Audubon Society.

This was about the peak of my planter garden. The too hot days, the black fabric planters, and the location created a shorter than normal growing season but it was SO worth it.

My cucumbers grew high enough to pick right from my kitchen window.

… and I shared my parsley with a black swallowtail caterpillar. lol

… and there’s not many rainbows that shoot from the moon! (erm.. sorta.)

These photos capture the beauty of your summer. Sounds like all good news. Love the rainbow from the moon. Safe travels southward.

Thank you Carolyn! Unfortunately, the best laid plans of mice and men… I’m still stuck at the mechanic’s place in Canaan, NH. Found a few issues that needed to be fixed on the RV and people are mailing 1 part when 4 were ordered! (and they’re all overnight deliveries! lol) … but I’m lucky my favorite mechanic noticed or I’d have had HUGE problems down the road!

Lovely lovely photos … beautiful scenery, great to see TED swimming, cucumbers for the picking and caterpillar snacking … looks like a heavenly bit of the USA. Be safe on the next leg of your journey … let us know where you end up! P.S. … don’t know if anyone passed it on but Joan’s Rose had to be put to sleep three days ago. Tumor followed by seizures. We all miss her. Love from Ted and dog park Margaret

Thank you Margaret! I’m slowly making my way down to Virginia for a few months but I’ve stopped at a friends house for a week or so before continuing my journey. I had not heard about Rose! That is so sad. I sent Joan a text sending my condolences. Thanks for telling me. Sending love back from Ted and myself!
