ABC Wednesday - I

The INNS of New Hampshire in the Lakes Region of Lake Winnepesaukee. New England is dotted with Inns of all shapes, sizes, and amenities. On a recent weekend in New Hampshire I shot these photos of just a few of some of the Inns. We were a little early for the splendid fail foiliage that New England is so well known for. Oh well, another trip! The Inn at Mill Falls in Meredith, New Hampshire.
The Inn at Smith Cove in Gilford, New Hampshire.
Ames Farm Inn in West Alton, New Hampshire. All three Inns are accessible by boat on Lake Winnepesaukee.
This is Little Mark ISLAND. It is one of over 200 islands in Lake Winnepesauke. Little Mark is only 50 yards or so as the crow flies (that's New Hampshire talk for not far) from the shore. There is one house, one boathouse, hopefully one outhouse, and only one family who inhabit Little Mark Island seasonally.
And for your ICE CREAM needs you must drive to Sawyer's Dairy Bar. Best ice cream in the Lake region since the 1940's.

Charming. I'll take the one on Little Mark Island. Or, maybe there is no room in the inn?

My computer is sluggish so only two of your photos 'came down' but I particularly enjoyed the first one. The word 'inn' isn't used so much here in Australia, yet it's a very nostalgic term, and a lovely word for 'Wednesday'.

Those inns are SO pretty! I want to go on a trip ASAP! I also love the ice cream stand. Yummy!
