I'm SO HOMESICK! I think it's the summer that does it, it happens every year. But this year it feels a little harder to be away from our family, and the mountains, than usual. (I stole some photos from my sister to drive the point home, Thanks Love!)
"One of the world's most exquisite settings of lake and mountain scenery awaits you when you visit the villages and backroads of Meredith, New Hampshire. Shorefront towns of Weirs Beach, Center Harbor, Moultonborough, Holderness and Sandwich join with Meredith to welcome you to a unique world of old-fashioned charm, friendly surroundings, and unsurpassed natural beauty. Endless lake and mountain vistas are accented with fun family attractions, special events, historic sites, outdoor adventures and unique shops -- in addition to friendly restaurants and a wide variety of comfortable accommodations.
Spring fills the air with the perfume of lilacs and honeysuckle. In the lazy days of summer, Lake Winnipesaukee's crystal clear waters mirror luscious blue sky and lush lakeshore greenery. In autumn, the vibrant crimson of maples and golden yellows of birches is unforgettable. During winter, Meredith becomes a wonderland, with easy access to ice fishing and miles of open area for cross country skiers and snowmobiles. No matter what time of year you visit, you're sure to discover the sights, sounds and fragrances which make the Lake Winnipesaukee and the surrounding Lakes Region unique. We welcome you!" (quoted from Meredith Area Chamber of Commerce)

My favorite part of all this is that I can share it with our son someday, hopefully every summer like I experienced it when I was growing up!
