    North Conway, New Hampshire

    September 27, 2015 in the United States ⋅

    It was time to close the book on our whirlwind tour of Atlantic Canada. This isn't our customary style of travel....a different hotel or B&B almost every night as well as many travel miles.....so we were both feeling a bit exhausted. Perhaps as a result, JS turned the air blue as we left Saint John early Sunday morning because the GPS couldn't locate the satellite as quickly as he would like. So we meandered a bit before reaching the Trans Canada Highway. Later in the morning we reflected on the past 2 weeks.


    - breakfasts, but not the beds, at most of our B&Bs
    - the pastoral life of PEI and the ruggedness of Cape Breton Island
    - fresh lobster, scallops and haddock that we ate almost daily
    - warm, sometimes hot, sunny days
    - beautiful scenery around every corner
    - friendly, welcoming reception by the locals
    - the historical significance of the people and places


    - the major cities, except for Charlottetown
    - we kept missing the kitchen parties so sadly did not attend one
    - rude Quebecois who ought to just stay home
    - the high cost of lodging, meals, and gas
    - the weight I gained from eating all that good food, not to mention the wine

    The 7 hour drive went by quickly and we arrived in NH around 5. When we checked into our timeshare condo, we were assigned a regular hotel room with a small kitchenette instead of the studio suite I had paid for. Since they were full for the night we reluctantly accepted this room. The photo is of the main building but the timeshare units are located in a separate building at the rear. North Conway is situated in White Mountain National Forest and reminds us of a much smaller version of Banff. I was expecting vibrant Fall foliage but apparently it is slower than usual this year so the leaves are just beginning to turn.

    North Conway

    Our stop for the night is at the Red Jacket Resort in North Conway, as you can see as usual we had our own private swimming pool and jacuzzi 🏊.

    The swimming pools in the US are unusual in that there are no changing rooms near the pool, meaning that either you have to change in your room and walk through the hotel in your swimming costume (which in this case also meant walking through the dinning room while people were eating) or you change in the nearest toilet. It wouldn't be to bad if they provided robes but they don't. Very strange, it seems to be how things are done over here as it was the same in our previous hotel.

    Also the pool towels provided are very small so don't really cover anything up 😗

    A Wash-Out

    September 29, 2015 in the United States ⋅

    It started to rain around noon on Tuesday and continued heavily for the next 48 hours....a total of 3.5 inches of rain. The weather office issued a flood watch for our area and were advising people to stay off the roads and highways. Since we weren't familiar with the roads and streams it seemed wise to comply and stay indoors. Doing laundry and watching TV was all that was accomplished. On Thursday the sun returned but the temperature dropped to the mid-teens for the remainder of the week. JS decided it was a good day to read and sleep. The reading came to an abrupt end when he discovered that his new book was missing 65 pages! I walked through town and browsed the shops, not spending a penny.Read more
