A day well deserved ~ Mosaic Monday

On Wednesday my husband and I took a drive up to Wolfeboro. We hadn't been in a couple years so I was anxious to go back. My one regret while we were there is that I didn't take any pictures in town. I don't know why, I just didn't.

On our way there we drove near Lake Wentworth . . .



We followed a sign that was supposed to take us to the historic site of Governor John Wentworths home. You can see the dirt road we drove down in the upper left corner. When we arrived at our destination it was a plaque on a rock and an old stone foundation. That's about it. He didn't have the best view either because it didn't even overlook the lake with his namesake!

In the two bottom photos: A tree growing right up over a big rock, and Lake Wentworth on a very calm, cool, and quite autumn day.




The view out our window during lunch in Wolfeboro: A squirrel eating his meal of Maple Tree seeds.



Above and below: Views from the dock over looking Lake Winnepesaukee





My husband catching a few rays


An old wooden boat cruising across the lake. It must have been cold out there!



A Loon weathervane on Alton Bay



And finally a bad picture of us that I tried to salvage with textures and such. I used the timer, and we took several shots, but they all came out horrible. This was the best of the worst.

We had an excellent day. Wolfeboro was glorious as always. As we made our way back to the car we happened to walk past Jimmy Fallon who was about to enter Garwoods Restaurant with an older couple, possibly his parents, who knows. Being that it was such a quiet day, no one else was around, just us. We didn't say anything to him though, just stared like crazy and walked on by. Kind of a weird moment that took us both by surprise. He was awesome on the Emmy's!



After taking a week off I'm going to try to get back in the blogging groove. Pretty soon I'll be starting a new job which I hope will give my life the shot in the arm it desperately needs right now. As much as I was dreading going back to work I think my spirit needs the distraction.

Looks like a wonderful day. Lovely reflections in the water and I really liked the loon weathervane and the gulls ... silly critters! Nice to *see* you! :D :D

Laura said...

Why would you say this is a bad picture of you two? I think it is really nice!

La said...

It looks like you have some pretty fall color up where you are. Our colors have been very muted this year.

How exciting to see Jimmy Fallon while out for the day.

Best of luck with your new job. La

Snappy Di said...

I guess when it comes to photos that beauty is in they eye of the beholder and I think you both look beautiful.

Now, about getting a great one of Hubby and I for the Christmas card... ahem....

I like the picture of you and your husband! If I laid down on that dock like that, I would not be able to get back up. :-D
Thanks for sharing your trip - great pictures. You have lots more Fall color than we do.
Have a great week. Good luck on your new job.

Blooming Rose Musings said...

I love the picture of the two of you! How can you say it's anything less than wonderful...you can't! I love it!
I can see all the fall colors and they are so deep and rich. Is it toward the end of leaf season now? I also love the loon weathervane.
Good luck with your new job.

Judy said...

That is a lovely dirt road, even if the end of it was disappointing! And I love the tree growing over the rock! Thanks for pointing it out, as I did not see that til you mentioned it!

eileeninmd said...

Lovely photos! Looks like you are having a colorful fall. Great shot of you and your hubby!

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

Great post and lovely photos! Your New England fall is glorious.

We attended a destination wedding last October and Kristen Weig was a guest. It was so hard to remain calm and cool :)

Love the serenity and beautiful fall colors.

Jen at Cabin Fever said...

I think that's a great photo of you and your husband! Seriously. It doesn't need textures because it doesn't need to be salvaged :)

And I can't believe the colors/leaves down there. We've lost every leaf and the trees are as bare as winter already!

A Garden of Threads said...

Great photos of your day and yourselves. Good luck with the new job and take care.

Vee said...

These are all wonderful...I think the "best of the worst" was fantastic so I'm obviously not your worst critic. The squirrel photo is magazine worthy...just amazing. All the best as you head back to work...

CollectIn Texas Gal said...

OMGosh...every photo is magazine worthy! Fantastic colors and composition. Great Mosaic Monday presentation.

Bernie said...

Great photos ... great views. I think the last photo of you both is just lovely! I particularly love the weathervane shot ... that's smashing!

Gardening in a Sandbox said...

Gorgeous photos. It looked like a glorious day to be on a road trip. I love your photo texture and all.

Millie said...

Wonderful mosaic! I love the one of your hubby on the dock.

EG Wow said...

New England is soooo beautiful this time of year. You are a cool-looking couple. :)

dAwN said...

Awesome photos as always..you and your hubbie look darling.
Good luck on your new job! I look forward to hearing more about it.

Ann said...

Wow! came to your blog via another - as you do - and liked what I saw. Great photographs and have already fallen in love with Lake Winnepesaukee.
Happy week and good luck with the job.

Custom Comforts said...

How very beautiful! Your pictures remind me of the eastern shore of Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay's small towns. Brings back lovely memories. Thank you.

Nancy Medina said...

Oh my, if only my good photographs were as good as your bad photographs.! : ) These are beautiful Sharon, I love seeing you guys all bundled up and just trying to imagine what some cool weather would feel like.

Sue said...

Your photos are lovely and have captured the lake and its surroundings so well! Love the shot of the squirrel eating his snack.

Kathy said...

Looks like you had a terrific time! Beautiful surroundings! Love your mosaic,
Kathy

Donna said...

That's neat that you saw Jimmy Fallon!
Lovely pictures. My favorite is actually the one of the squirrel. I miss squirrels! They were everywhere in Connecticut but there aren't too many of them around here in Iowa--the hawks like to eat them!

Meri said...

I think you did a great job of salvaging the photo of you two. Looks like a wonderful day. Can I go on field trips with you? Maybe we could look for a husband for me in one of the little shops. . .

Steve Borichevsky said...

Ah, it's good to get out and kick the leaves every now and then.

Jan's camera said...

Your new banner is beautiful. Jimmy Fallon was wonderful at the Emmy Awards.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Beautiful mosaics! I've visited Lake Winnepesaukee in summer so Zi enjoyed seeing it in autumn.

How cool to see Jimmy Fallon! He's so talented and seems to be a nice guy.

Good luck with your new job!

Loree said...

What a beautiful place. And the fall colours on the trees is lovely.

Pat said...

I love your little jaunts. You always come back with such beautiful photos!

Jimmy Fallon! How cool is that! He WAS great on the Emmy's!

You two make such a cute couple!

The Retired One said...

Wonderful photos, and that last photo was wonderful...not the best of the worst...you guys look perfect!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Beautiful photos! Thanks for posting them :) Looks like a fun trip!

How cool you walked past Jimmy Fallon, I think he's great! Is he from the area?

Good luck with your new gig :D

Jayne said...

What a lovely day Sharon! And I love that photo of the two of you, by the way!

SouthernSass said...

I think the photo of the two of you is great and I love the texture! I think the New England area is so beautiful at any time of year and I cannot wait to visit again. Good luck with your new job!

And yes, I love PW Boost action. I ran it on the "fair" photo before adding the texture. I love all of her actions!

Mary said...

Oh, I always love coming here, Sharon. It's like my much-needed dose of New England beauty! :)
