The End

...of the summer season is upon us.

Jump in and enjoy the warmth...

...then slap on the apparatus and go for a ride.
Waterskiing brings a bit of calm water and a bit of chop

...and these three managed it very well.

All together a great time spent around the big lake with memories that will last a lifetime.

Old Home Day ~Egg Toss and Fireworks~

Another Gilford Old Home Day full of fun and fireworks.The annual Egg Toss brought out young and old to the playing field.

Some careful catching with their delicate cargo.

Finally the last egg standing...

and the winners are... exuberant!

To end the evening the fireworks went off a little early ...just in time before Irene started her journey through the Lakes Region.

Big blasts with big color!

Not Just Another Face in the Crowd

Faces from the Timberman Sprint at Ellacoya State Park this past weekend.



Sunday, August 21, 2011


The Timberman 70.3 triathlon was held at Ellacoya State Park over this past weekend. As stated above it is simply pure inspiration.

The race brings together hundreds of athletes from around the globe to endure a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run. Luckily, for these athletes, this race is held in one of the most beautiful spots in New Hampshire.

Enjoy the ride...

Congratulations to you all,

Them's the Berries!

There is still great blueberry picking around the Lakes Region if you're up for a little hike.

Head up Piper Mountain in Gilford which is a fairly easy hike up from either Carriage Road or Gilford Glen Road. We chose Gilford Glen Road and the blueberries were plentiful and the view gorgeous.

You can't lose...

...when a little blueberry bird of happiness :)

gets added to your plate!
