Shop Hopping and an Anniversary

The Maine Shop Hop 2013 is winding down and I do feel that I made a huge dent in the list, I visited 31 of the 37 on the list.  My goal one of these years is to get to all of the shops, it will probably involve at least one or two overnight stays to make it more enjoyable. 

On Sunday my husband and I celebrated our 29th Wedding Anniversary by driving to two shops on the hop, they were in the Rangley lakes area of Maine.  My husband has been up there but this was my first time in that part of the state, it is beautiful.................

These two photos are of  Mooselookmeguntic Lake (bet you can't say that fast 3x, heck I can't even say it once)................

Some wind turbines in the Rumford area, I have to say they certainly look strange in such a beautiful area.........

The Rumford Falls.............

We ended up taking Route 16 in New Hampshire home, we planned on taking Route 113 but they close the road in the winter and apparently they haven't opened it yet.  We stopped in Conway, NH and picked up some sandwiches and stopped at this little rest area and enjoyed the quiet.............

 The water is so clear, I didn't stick my feet in but I'm guessing it was very cold!

It was a wonderful way for us to spend our anniversary, big plans to return to The Mount Washington Hotel for our 30th Anniversary! 

Yesterday I spent the day in the yard working around the asparagus, strawberries, raspberries and herb garden.......today I will be cleaning out the coop and waiting for our "special delivery". 


  1. Those really are some beautiful places you visited! Happy Anniversary.:o)

  2. Beautiful pictures! We visited Maine and New Hampshire several years ago-these brought back good memories!


I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
