What I Did On My (Not Long Enough) Summer Vacation

If this blog had smell-o-rama you would be able to enjoy the scent of sun-washed pine. With sound-o-rama you could hear the soft splish of mini-waves washing over the rocks on the shore, and the wispering of birch leaves trembling in the breeze. And enviro-true would help you feel the warm sun, then as the light ebbed, you would feel the cool come down from the hills.Now multiply that by about 6 days and you have a perfect vacation in New Hampshire.

Wish I were there.

Hi Peg,

I'm glad you commented on my blog a while back (before I lost my network connection for a week)...

I spent my first 47 years in Maryland - from Baltimore City to Anne Arundel Co. to Harford County where we lived for 15 years. So we have something in common! I remember when Columbia was built - the new city - late sixties, I think.

These photos of New Hampshire look very COOL. I doubt it reaches 105 degrees up there!

Mary, you're right - it doesn't get to 105 in NH, though sometimes it can hit the low 90's. Now more than ever I long for that cool lake!

And you're also right about Columbia - the city celebrated its 40th birthday in June. From an agrarian start, Columbia is now about 100,000 people and part of the Baltimore-DC megalopolis.

Thanks for visiting - I so enjoy your blog and unbelievable photos, especially of those lovely hummingbirds. A real delight!
