Here are some things I bought. I realize that I may have a problem when it comes to Patriots themed anything, but it’s so weird/awesome to walk into a sporting goods store and see an entire section of Patriots merchandise. Of course, I get sucked in every time and drop at least $40.00 (or should I say, $39.99).
Also, today I ate my first whole lobster at the "Lobster Trap". It’s a good thing there weren’t many people at the restaurant because Wendy had to coach me through the whole thing. I even had to wear the nasty bib… oh well, it was worth it.
While driving, we came across several ski resorts. They are big here in New Hampshire (we are in the White Mountains), and as you can see from the pictures, there is still snow!
NH lies. The Kanc, or 112, is supposed to be THE place to see moose. Especially at the marsh around dusk. We went by there two nights at dusk as two other times during the day, and all we saw were these signs.
As much as I don't miss snow, when ice forms on the trees like this, it sure is pretty! This was around 2850 ft. elevation on the Kanc. It was in the 30's up there.
We made the day trip across the Kanc just to go to Fadden's general store for some maple goodies. Check out the brick of maple sugar candy! As it turned out, we also found other goodies....
To be fair, some of that maple goodness came from the coolest store in North Conway, called Zeb's. I'll never be able to describe this place, but mixed in with antique appliances and old bottles of coke and old time candies, were pickled things, mixes for every imaginable backed thing, sauces, maple syrups, and the list goes on. I captured a few of my favorite offerings (though I did not buy them).
On a less offensive note, we pulled into one of the White Mountain National Park areas and walked along a beautiful gorge (the pictures never do these things justice), over a wooden bridge, and found a glassy little lake hidden in the woods. It turned into a gorgeous day.
