The most beautiful quilt shop just down the road from our campground. It's called the Meetinghouse Quilt Shop. It's an old church that sat empty for a long time until the owner and her family purchased it two years ago and did an amazing job fixing it up. They used the original oak pews as shelves and the original chandeliers are also being used.
This house still has furniture inside of it. Most of the roof is gone and the garage has collapsed.
Look at the trees; stripped of all vegetation and some are bent over from the force of the wind.
We stayed in a campground very close to Brimfield, MA which got hit by the tornado on June 1st. It came right up this valley; some houses are left untouched and others are gone. The front porch is all that is left of this house in the foreground.
Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire.
We stayed at this campground on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire.
This is Squam Lake in New Hampshire's lake region. This is where the movie "On Golden Pond" was filmed. We actually heard loons.

Kula gets his feet wet.
Beautiful day in Bar Harbor.
The Bar Harbor Inn; we ate under the yellow umbrellas. Even our doggy sat with us.
I love Camden, Maine!

A Cabot Cove lookalike; really it's Stonington, Maine.
The cribstone bridge to Bailey Island.
This is the end of our lobster dinner at Cook's Lobster House on Bailey Island, Maine. Fabulous and sooooo much food. We each had 2 pound lobsters! To get to Bailey Island you cross over the only cribstone bridge in the world.

Got to visit my sweet nephew and his family.
A lovely yarn store in Putnam, CT.
Well, after four days and four nights of solid rain (the last of hurricane Lee) we moved on to Connecticut. We were not sure we could leave as there were numerous counties in New York under a state of emergency with roads closed, etc. I guess we chose the right roads because we made it. Some campgrounds were still under water. It is beautiful now with a seven day forecast of sun, in the 70's.

These little stands were all over the place. The BEST corn I have ever eaten!!
Fantastic farmer's market!
Finally, some yarn to purchase. Local alpaca and silk. Love this blush color; right up my alley.
