Silver Lake Hospitality

As you can see we are happily nestled in on Silver Lake in New Hampshire. Our new friends Mark and Bonnie invited us to stay for the week and we are in love with this spot already! Billy backed the trailer down the long driveway and we have a nice view of the lake right out the bedroom window. Last night we listened to the loons calling out on the lake. It was pretty great.

Upon arrival yesterday Mark took us for a boat ride around the lake. The scenery is amazing. The lake is backed by the White Mountains and in particular Mt. Chocorua which is the more pointy, craggy peak you see in the photo. This is our view from the cottage...

Rudy enjoyed his ride in the boat... although we had to keep a close eye on him as he kept trying to leap out on the back end where it was quite possible he would have slipped off the back and into the drink... or worse yet into the motor.

We had a nice dinner out on the deck with Mark and Bonnie complete with homemade blueberry pie made from fresh handpicked local blueberries.

Billy is setting up to paint right now... he wants to get some work out of the way today so we can go exploring, hiking or canoing tomorrow. I am perfectly content to hang out with a book on the deck and dear Rudy is like a drunken frat boy on vacation... he is (for the first time) roaming free in the woods eating pine cones, growling ferociously at chipmunks and chasing bees.

Thanks to Mark and Bonnie for inviting us out! It looks like it will be a great week!
