Sorry you haven’t had many comments from me lately, but Bev and I spent a week touring around New Hampshire and Maine while my blog posted items I had in the queue, and I’ve had very little time, but now it's time to tell you a little about our trip.
Other than New York City and a week in Vermont, neither Bev nor I had spent time in New England and I’d been talking about a trip for at least 5 years, so we finally made it. While mid-May is probably not the best time of year, it fit into our vacationing schedule, gardening, when we could trade our time share, etc. better than any other time.
We began our trip with a couple of days visiting with family in WV where their spring is about a month behind us with dogwoods and azaleas just now in blooming.
After the couple of days WV, we set off for the long one-day trip to NH going thru Hagerstown, Md, Harrisburg & Scanton, PA, Albany, NY, and several little towns in Vermont and NH, and we arrived at our destination a mere 13½ hours later. I drove the whole way and surprisingly was not as worn out as I thought I might be and for the most part it was a beautiful drive thru country we’d never seen. After traveling these northern roads just after winter and giving my cars suspension system the test of its life, I’ll never again complain about the roads at home as these are in terrible shape – interstates, major highways, and secondary roads alike.
We would have liked to stay on the Maine coast, but the closest we could get with our time share trade was Attitash Ski resort, near North Conway, NH and since I wanted to spend some time touring New Hampshire and central Maine and it was only 1½ hours from the coast, we went with it - here's our condo and the ski slope across the road.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
