Tomorrow we are going up to Pittsburg, the most northern part of NH. It is our most favorite place in the world. We have rented the same cabin we rented last year,on First Connecticut Lake. The trip is about 4 hours,give or take. The ride is always beautiful,because you have to go through the White Mountains to get there. We always take our time,stop for breakfast and where ever we feel like along the way. We are coming home on Monday.
Rick is excited not only for the relaxation,but for the fishing.He is hoping that Zach will catch a land locked salmon.Last year,the fishing was not that great because we went later in the summer and it was so darn HOT. We hoped to avoid that this year,but we heard that this weekend temps are going to spike to the 90's again. However, up in Pittsburg it's going to feel like the mid 80's,so we shall have to see. There are four CT Lakes,named,oddly enough, First,Second,Third,and Fourth :) Fourth is right on the Canadian border,and you have to hike to get to it.Since we haven't gone that far north,we have never been there. We go as far as Third,and that's it. Also in Pittsburg is Lake Francis,Round Pond,Black Pond, Middle Pond,and a whole host of ponds and streams to catch fish in. We are renting a motor boat again to troll First. I am bringing a stadium seat with me this year. I don't fish,so while Zach and Rick fish,I read. Sitting in a boat with no back rest does horrible things to my lower back,so this year I will be comfortable and able to enjoy myself more.
I love waking up early,getting a cup of coffee and sitting outside. There is something about seeing the lake and mountains,hearing the birds,loons,and ducks,and smelling that fresh Balsam pine filled air that relaxes me and fills my soul with with contentment. It's fabulous. How can one not be relaxed and happy with this as their daily view? See you next week!
