While up in the New England states, we quickly discovered, that the smartest thing we could do, was to stay put at the RV park we fit at in Maine, and just drive our car on day trips to all the different states near by. This blog is about New Hampshire and Vermont. One of the perks of the east coast, is that in an hour or two, you can be in the middle of an entirely new state! :)
What a concept!
The views were beautiful and we were sure to hit small towns and window shop, as well as disappear into the beautiful mountains, trails and waterfalls in the area.
We stopped at a farmers market, then Jeb's General Store, and checked out all the cool Maple syrup products and picked out a little maple leaf candy of pure maple syrup to try. DEEELICIOUS!
I love all the old covered bridges, the rickety cemeteries along the road, and how all the houses have these super narrow double front doors.
The local grocery stores aren't chains, rather these little bitty mom and pop stores along the road. LOVE that!
New Hampshire is home of the oh so beautiful White Mountains, so we were sure to go explore up there too.
We ate lunch at a little pizza joint in Vermont and enjoyed the views before heading to find a swimming hole or hiking trail to explore!
This was, by far, my FAVORITE part of this road trip. We found the coolest river spot where no one else was, and just had a ball.
Sophie was hopping from rock to rock, the kids were splashing and cooling off. Then as I hiked up the hill for a shot of them playing, I discovered that the river split above and actually was flowing over an entirely separate rock section at the Y, making another cool waterfall place to play in.
Everyone headed up, and before long, the dares were flying. Avery dunked her head in, and soon was all in. Well, if she did it, then Destiny was going to go completely under and swim in the ice cold water as well.
The boys, at the very end as we walked to the car, decided they would NOT be one upped by their sisters, so they dunked in too. BRRRRR!!!! It was so cold, but SO refreshingly beautiful.
All the pics are below in the slide show, take a peek....
Time to head back to camp, and get some cold, tired, smiling kids to bed!
Tomorrow, we would pull out and head 4 hours to enjoy Connecticut....
See you next time, T
