Two of the barns at this historic farm.
Once the ice is thick enough in Alton Boy on Lake Winnipesaukee, they plow a runway for small private planes to land. I went up on Sunday of last weekend. With good weather, there were landings every few minutes. Alton Bay is surrounded by local restaurants. The pilots fly in, have a good meal, socialize, and then fly back home. It’s something to see.
Last Sunday was our town’s annual ice fishing derby. I took a walk around the ice to take some pictures and talk to people. While i was there the fish weren’t biting. I hope their luck changed.
I’d last visited here in July and then returned two weeks ago. The river below the bridge was pretty much frozen, though I don’t think I’d try walking on it. The image below was made this past summer.
They even painted the ceiling.
This was the farm house at Muster Field Farm an antique farm and museum in North Sutton, NH. Tours are normally available during the summer.
This is a remnant from a WWII era gun emplacement along the coast of New Hampshire. The gun rotated along this circular track.
Yesterday morning, I drove up to Muster Field Farm in North Sutton, NH. It is a historic farm that operates as a farm in summer and also serves as a museum. It was just pristine yesterday with nobody around except me and the warm sun. The sign said this was the Bradford Mineral Spring House but I have no idea what the purpose was.
This is how my hikes now look after almost a foot of snow fell on Monday. It’s beautiful and I really enjoy getting out in it.
