|Heading out in Greg's boat|
Our first stop in New England was Clearwater Campground in Meridith, New Hampshire. This is where we McMillens used to go camping when we were little, and you know, it still looks almost exactly the same as it did back in the 70s. We met up here with Anne’s siblings Linda, Greg, and Karen and their families. Our campsites were side-by-side, making it easy to visit back and forth. Greg brought his boat for tubing and water-skiing, as well as a peaceful early morning coffee/tea cruises. We squeezed under the canopies and tents when it teemed with rain the first afternoon, cooked marshmallows over the campfires for s’mores, swam in the lake (a one-minute walk from our campsites) and played on the beach, got make-your-own-sundaes at the Kellerhaus in Weirs Beach on Lake Winnipesaukee, and had an all-around great time.
