Wow! It feels like the summer has just flown by! I can’t believe it’ already August 12th! Since, we’re not really going on a long summer vacation, we decided to go a few different shorter, drivevable escapes.
While a lot of my family lives on the east coast, my parents live in Arizona, and every Summer my dad comes out to head out to his family’s home in the lakes region of New Hampshire. It’s gorgeous and a great way to get out of the city. The trip is a little longer than the Jersey Shore and the Hamptons, but the return on investment is huge. There’s nothing more gorgeous (or different than NYC) than Lake Winnepesuakee
This summer was no different, and Adam and I headed up North for a long weekend. We actually made it a little bit of a Romantic getaway, and instead of hanging out with the fam, we spent our time in an adorable cottage on Weirs Beach. It was just the right size (and amount) to provide a place to crash at the lake, but also feel like we’re on a mini-vacation. The lovely oweners of the Inn gave us lots of cupons to try out some of the local restuarants. We had Lobster on the beach during the Friday Night fireworks at Wiers Beach. I’ve never had lobster before (surprise, right!), and while the fireworks were amazing, I’m not so sure I’ll order the giant shellfish again…I’m a cheap date, I perfer shrimp!
