New England 2002

After Florida Lesley and I flew from Tampa via Philadelphia to Boston, this time I let someone else do the driving.

We picked up a car and headed north through Salem (witches and all that), Portsmouth, then east to the White Mountains. and the Mount Washington Hotel  finally ending up in North Conway.

The area is truly beautiful, and so unlike any other part of the US that I have visited.

Salem, Massachusetts.

This is a house of some note, but I didn't take down the details!

Weir's Beach, New Hampshire

We sent the night here, no much going on, but managed to find the only open bar, which we kept open till 2 in the morning. We met some interesting locals.

Weir's Beach, Shopping Mall.

Lake Winnipesaukee, NH.

We spent a couple of hours crusing the lake on the MS Mount Washington, a bit like going "doon the water".

This beautiful old resort hotel sits below Mount Washington, the highest mountain in Eastern US, a fantastic hotel and setting.

This is the dinning car, we didn't have the opportunity to experience the fare.

This car was 140 years old, and had been built originally as a first class car, used on the Chicago to Washington run.
