Lake Champlain. . . . . . .

Last night we took an unplanned ferry ride across 
Lake Champlain from Vermont to Plattsburgh, New York.

Old style lakefront vacation lodgings - still very attractive when kept up so well.

Returning to Vermont today we drove down through the sunlit 
lake islands to Burlington, arriving back in Manchester, 
New Hampshire - our starting point last Tuesday. 
Our unplanned road trip turn into a lovely vacation - 
the countryside and coastal regions were all so scenic, 
the kindness of the near perfect late Summer weather was 
a most generous extra.

Always an interesting journey………..

No time to write much as we head even further north this morning toward the Canadian border. We didn't expect to get this far and don't have passports with us so will not be venturing into that lovely land, unfortunately!
More of New Hampshire included the Bretton Woods resort, Bethlehem with historic theatre and quaint shops, and a sudden drop in temps. which had me digging out a jacket to ward off the bracing mountain air.
Vermont was awesome and included a tour of the Cabot cheese factory, with nibbles - dinner at the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier - and scenery to behold!

Looking out at Lake Champlain now and will be on the road after breakfast.
More later.

Continuing the New England road trip………………

We're snuggled into our hotel room in the mountains tonight.  

 This was the view as we drove into North Conway, NH this 
evening, the air cooling comfortably following another
very warm and sunny day.

Evening falls over Mt. Washington, New Hampshire - 6,288 feet, highest mountain in the 
Northeastern United States.

New England countryside.

White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Coastal Maine, USA . . . . . . . . .

This is where Bob and I spent today in brilliant sunshine 
and 78 degrees. . .talk about a perfect late Summer's 
day, this was it!

Cape Neddick Lighthouse known as 'Nubble Light', York, Maine,
 was built in 1879 and is still in use today.

Perkins Cove, Ogunquit Beach, Maine. . . we spent 
many a Summer's day here between 1965-1977 when we lived
in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, and always love
to come back.

Wild white roses at the beach.

Tomorrow we plan more New England travel. . . heading inland 
from the Maine coast to New Hampshire's White Mountains, 
then on into Vermont.
