As I hinted at yesterday, we had an absolutely wonderful time at Lake Winnipesaukee! We are so lucky to get to visit Jo-Ann and Shawn there every summer and we love that Kim and Ken usually join us as well.
Dale and I drove up Friday during the day and, while it took us longer than it should have to get there (damn Waze) once we were there we made the most of it. We had a late lunch that included a Bloody Mary for me and a beer for him.
And once we arrived at the lake house we unpacked as quickly as possible and had a nice refreshing swim. We passed the time waiting for the arrival of Jo-Ann and Shawn with martinis and Friday night snacks. And then, once they did arrive, we spent a wonderful night catching up, drinking wine and playing Mexican Train.
Saturday was hot and humid and the lake was a welcome respite. We enjoyed Bloody Marys and some shrimp and then spent the rest of the afternoon floating on the lake, drinking beer and laughing until we cried.
It was after 5 before we finally made our way back on to dry land. We moved to the deck and set out some snacks and started prepping dinner.
Steak tips and corn on the cob, potato salad and corn salad, it was a bountiful feast!
I love this view of the lake house from the water, I snapped it right as the boat pulled away from the dock as we went out on a night time ride in the boat for ice cream.
And we even saw some fireworks on the way.
Sunday was sunny but cooler and we headed up to Laconia for lunch at the Tamarack. My lobster roll was terrific but Dale’s fried clams were the hit of that meal.
And then ice cream, again, because not one of use could resist the idea of an ice cream smorgasbord.
We ended the day with a fabulous boat ride. Seriously, the scenery is just gorgeous and I love being out on the water with Shawn at the wheel of his boat.
Thank you, Jo-Ann and Shawn for a wonderful weekend! Until next time, Lake Winnipesaukee!
