Hiking The ‘Shannon Brook Trail’ At ‘Castle In The Clouds’, Moultonboro, N.H.

It was the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend. It was a picture perfect day in terms of New Hampshire weather. We wanted to do something ‘outside’ and the ‘Castle‘ came to mind. That we were going to dinner at Giuseppe’s in Meredith in the evening made it a ‘no brainer’. We could just do a loop of the Lake. And that is what we did.

Though we had free tickets for the ‘Castle‘ from ‘Volunteer Day‘ none of us wanted to tour the ‘Castle’ again. We have all visited it at least six times. So, we just wanted to enjoy the grounds. Found this hike. Nice and easy as hikes go and you can still visit the waterfall. So, great value. I enjoyed it. I had already walked/run 3 miles in the morning. So, I wasn’t too concerned that it was not overly long. Still ended up doing 20,000 steps for the day. I am cool with that.

This trail, as you can see from the maps, parallels the ‘paid entrance’ auto road for much of the way. You are not allowed to walk on the auto road — autos only. So, for folks like us who want to hike this is the way to do it. You can see the road from many places on the trail. You could cut across if you wanted. SMILE.

Meredith (New Hampshire) in the ‘Summer’ is always good for an impressive showing of flowers — and that is certainly the case in 2019 despite this crazy Spring we are having.

Meredith, today, was exquisite. All these flowers and the huge display of public art. WOW.

Many of these flowers were at Giuseppe’s — where we, of course, ate, as we invariably do.

If you have not been of late, PLEASE do yourself a favor (and treat) and visit.

I kid you NOT, Meredith (New Hampshire) is getting more beautiful and chic by the month. Each time I visit, which these days is about few times a year, Meredith has more art, more artistic stores and just a air of elegant sophistication. Wow. I lived in Meredith 1997 to 1999. It was nice then, on the upswing BUT nothing like it is now. If it was, I would never have moved.

Hands down, Meredith is NOW the MOST ATTRACTIVE of the Lake Winnipesaukee towns — Wolfeboro nowhere close. Alton, where I live, has to be the distant last.

But, I will go further. Meredith looks even better than Dartmouth or Portsmouth.

If you have not been of late, PLEASE do yourself a favor (and treat) and visit.

Eat at Giuseppe’s as we always do — and, of course, did today.

How I met Julie 22-years ago.
In case you are interested. Cute story.

This is so, so GREAT. Made my day when I saw it. So, well deserved. By FAR our favorite eatery anywhere on Lake Winnipesaukee. My now 18-year old daughter insists on going there for her birthday for at least the last 10-years. Plus, I have attended at least 22 of the to-date 25 annual JTG musical extravaganzas. I have been going there since 1997, if not 1996 — that been when I discovered Meredith.

Thank YOU, Julie. Thank YOU Michael. Thank YOU the staff.

You have nourished, entertained and treated us, right royally, for so many years.

Here is to the next 30-years. Cheers.
