At the very beginning of May, Mr. T and I were fortunate enough to travel up to northern New Hampshire for a three-day getaway. Only one day was perfectly sunny, but we enjoyed every moment of our time away regardless of the weather. Here is just a glimpse of our trip.
We went for long walks every day, and took many shorter walks too. One of our favorite destinations was the beach -- only about a 15 minute walk. We sat at a picnic table and just took in the serenity of the scene. It was very relaxing.
At the cabin, our favorite place to be was on the dock down by the lake. Here's a dear little flower that was in the stone steps leading down to the water.
Mr. T enjoyed taking a kayak out one day. It was a good thing he chose this day, as all of the others were too windy to be out in a kayak with the water as cold as it was!
Forget-me-nots grow profusely this far north, though I have rarely seen any in our area. Last spring when we were up north we saw drifts of forget-me-nots in the woods. These were in a little flower bed near the cabin.
Our cabin was right on the lake shore. We saw loons several times a day, usually a pair of loons at a time. I only wish I could reproduce the beauty of their eerie call for you to hear. This is the best loon picture we got.
And that is just a very small glimpse of our refreshing early-May getaway!
