My parents, sister and niece were here for a week but went back home. We had a GREAT week. We did a lot of walking, shopping, browsing and eating.
Sunday we stayed around the house and chatted and discussed where we would be going this week. We took a short scenic train ride and part of the group went to a blueberry social for desert. It was old home week in the town here so they have events and things to do almost every day.
Monday we headed to Meredith NH so my parents could take a boat ride on the M/V Mt Washington. Well not a good day. We parked in the main parking lot at 10:40AM. They got on the boat at 12:05. My sister, niece, daughter, grandson and I went shopping then stopped for lunch, got a phone call that my parents were through with their boat ride but they didn't know where they were. Long story is they got off at the wrong dock in the wrong town. So we go back to the car and find parking tickets, $15 fine. The tickets were written at 1:10PM, it was a 3 hour time limit but we were shorted. Then we go to pick up my parents. They just got off the boat, don't know why but they didn't think it looked familiar.
Here's the boat:
We got back to the house, rested for an hour or so then went out to our favourite place for seafood.
We took family pictures of my parents with the great grandsons, grandchildren and my sister and I.
I'll post more tomorrow
PS, We wrote down a time line of when we parked, a phone call, a picture we took, when the ticket was written. My niece called the police station when we returned to talk to them about this ticket. Then my niece and daughter went down to the police station a couple days later to meet with the officer and discuss the ticket. It was ripped up and thrown out by the officer and they were told "try not to do that again"
