Thursday Dick and I played golf at Eagle Mountain, while Annette and Sharron did some recreational shopping at the outlets. Eagle Mountain is a 9 hole course with elevated tees and lots of places to loose balls. And we managed to find all those places. The fairway is the safest place in the world, when we hit the links. The resort has a nice restaurant and lounge and we found the bar for a cold one after all that exercise. Almost forgot, on the 9th hole which parallels the road to the left. Dick chased a Mercedes down the road with the best drive of the day. It was on the road but what the heck, it was playable and there was no damage to the car. It had Florida plates. The ladies finished shopping and we all met at Dick and Sharron’s for happy hour. We had dinner, I use the word dinner now, because Val doesn’t like the word supper, at the Stonehurst Manor. It’s a quaint New England Inn with a library and fireplace room, converted to a lounge social area, where you can sit with a martini, while you wait for your table. Thursday night is two for the price of one, anything on the menu. You see a pattern here. They also have great wood fired Pizza. If your ever in the area it’s a great place to stay. The sunsets are great too.
Today we spent the morning packing and readjusting our trip plans, to include a stop in Lake Placid NY. We met Dick and Sharron for one more lunch at Horse Feathers and said our good by’s . It’s always sad leaving one place but we are heading to Michigan to see Norm and Sherri. Can’t wait to see them, and spend some time in the UP.
We left North Conway Saturday morning, heading to Burlington VT. We took the ferry from Burlington to Prot Kent NY and then on to Lake Placid. Do you know how many Yankee fans there are in New York? We were on the back roads for the whole trip, through the rolling hills of VT and NY. All the wild flowers, the farm land and some of the trees are starting to change color. We arrived in Lake Placid around 2PM and headed out to check out the town. We spent 15 minutes trying to get a ticket out of the parking machine and then forgot to take the ticket and put it on the windshield. Luck was with us, the ticket was still there, when the light finally came on. We walked around town and settled in at the Great Adirondack Brewing Company. They have great beer and the steaks were outstanding. We are back at the motel tonight and planning our route to Canada. Have a good one and see you all soon.
