|This photo captures the essence of summer in New Hampshire|
To our shame, Mr. T and I have taken very few pictures so far. This is not to say photos are not being taken. Both of our daughters and their husbands enjoy photography and have nice cameras, so plenty of pictures are being taken by them.
On Saturday, we took a short hike which leads to a lake. This is one of the loveliest little lakes in our area, and we are so thankful for this public access area to enjoy it. The hike is on a nearly level path; there's just enough of a challenge from roots and rocks to help little kids feel they are really hiking. And then at the end, this lovely small swimming area. Boats will often come in and anchor outside the swimming area, and that was the case on Saturday, but it was still a nice time. Later, we moved on to a second beach area and had a wonderful time there as well. The kids had come prepared to wade, but had not brought any swimming stuff. My hubby and I had been here before but had not remembered how nice the beach area was. However, lack of swim gear did not hold the kids back from getting thoroughly wet!
