Here in New Hampshire we are having a gorgeous weather week with temps in the 80’s and 50’s (at night). With sunshine and low humidity, who could ask for more?
It’s a great week to get outside and hike, kayak, swim (take the dog) and pick local berries.
I am planning a trip to my favorite little mountain this week to see what I’ll find for blueberries. Pitcher Mountain is easy to climb and has fabulous panoramic views from the top. This time of year the place is loaded with blueberries – I just hope they are blue by now.
It is not necessary to get into the car and travel on a nice day. Sunny, warm days are perfect for walks and I currently live near a lake in a rural area. My landlady lets me take her dog Roxie with me, and we have loads of fun getting exercise together. On our way home I let Roxie take a dip, and she loves the water.
If we decide to go hiking, we have Mount Monadnock and Pack Monadnock (smaller) close by in the towns of Jaffrey and Peterborough in the southern area of the state. And if my son was younger we’d take another ride up to Ruggles Mine in Grafton. That is a cool place to visit and collect rocks.
