Seeing the Sights on a Shoestring: Boats and Ducks

Monday, September 02, 2013

New Hampshire's biggest beauty (after Mt. Washington) is Lake Winnipesaukee. Yesterday, we drove around the lake, starting with Wolfeboro and Tuftonboro to enjoy a day of people watching and lunch. Big boats. quaint little stores, lunch on the water, and ducks.
We parked just our of the downtown area, and walked on their bike path into Wolfeboro. Yes, we did have to share the trail, but didn't mind it at all!

There are also picnic tables right on the water. We stopped and ate our lunch there.

We walked around the city, enjoying the sights and sounds of a city in transition. Many boats will be taken out of the lake at the end of the weekend. Everyone wants to enjoy their last weekend on the water.

What a scene of controlled chaos!

We watched most of it from the Dockside Restaurant. The food is great, and the ducks were very entertaining!

There were people feeding the ducks, kids chasing the ducks, and the ducks seemed quite happy to be the center of attention!

We drove down to Tuftonboro to a relatively quiet beach. This is the best kid beach that I've ever been to! We walked out 50 feet, and the water was only 4-5 feet deep. The base under the water wa all beach sand. I recommend this beach right on RT 109.

On our way out of town, we found some beautiful old cars and trucks on Rt. 109 in Melvin Village. I think that this truck came from the Kemp Park Car Auction from here in Hillsborough 4-5 years ago. What a beauty!

All in all, it was a great day! We also found lots of great yard sales. Life is good! Get out there, and go looking for the beauty!
