Summer in New Hampshire

Our home sweet home for the Summer

Here we are in Freedom, New Hampshire. On the shore of Lake Ossipee and a short drive from the White Mountains.  We have set up  base camp on our shady, expansive site and settled in for a Summer of exploring New Hampshire and Maine. Think covered bridges, waterfalls, lake fishing and mountain hiking and you’ll have a good idea of our plans. Click the follow button below and enter your email to follow along.

The trip here was circuitous but fun, seeing new areas and visiting friends. But we are ready to get off the road for a while and relax. Posts of our adventures here will be interspersed with diary entries of past trips, so don’t get confused if you don’t know where we seem to be. We are right here for now, waiting for the leaves to turn.

  4. I want to thank you for visiting and liking some posts of mine.

  5. I went on a solo road trip through New England and stayed on a place called “Country Bumpkins” near the white mountains! I hiked a trail called Lonesome Lake and was the only person on the trail. Your site looks lovely!

  6. Hi, I’m familiar with the spot but haven’t hiked it. Franconia area is on other side of the White mountains. Too many trails, too little time. Posted this afternoon about a recent hike to Arethusa Falls ( I am really enjoying following your blog…you are very adventuresome, a trait I admire.

  7. What a glorious campsite you’ve found! You’re going to have a wonderful summer – can’t wait to read all about it!

  8. Thanks, glad to have you along.

  9. What a beautiful campsite!! Completely different from the brush of southern Texas that we are currently enjoying!! We hope to be spending next summer exploring Maine!! How perfect!! We can see it through your eyes first!! Enjoy!!

  10. Oh wow, it looks so nice!! Great pictures, thanks a million for sharing!

  11. You missed the black fly season. Timing is everything. I wasn’t so lucky at the ocean this morning, whatever the green-headed monsters are called. Fact is, beauty usually comes at a price. Even here in New England.

    Thanks for checking out my site where you came across my New Hampshire paintings from June. If you can’t get inspired in the White mountains you may want to check your pulse. Have fun!

  18. You ‘liked’ my first post and that’s what led me to your blog. That, and the fact that my husband and I are planning a rather last minute, end of summer before- I -go- back- to -teaching, trip to Maine!
    But, we don’t have an RV – it will be 9 days of driving, viewing, eating, moteling, writing, etc.
    I’ll come back and ask more specific questions about towns we are thinking of traveling through.
    Happy Trails!
