The Weather


It's been a long, hard winter....


Oh, wait a minute...


That was a different year!


On the serious side, this past winter was rather strange.  The weather was not really that cold and the snow was abundant when we didn't want it and lacking when we wanted it the most.


Many Halloween events had to be canceled or postponed and the winter activities, like snowmobiling was limited.  Then, of course our weather in March was exceptionally warm which led to breaking another record for the earliest ice out in recorded history.


It's time to move on to the summer activities in the New Hampshire Lake Winnipesaukee area.  Because of the early warmth through March and a good part of April, many of the trees bloomed early.  It felt really nice to be outside enjoying the warmth without the usual bugs getting in the way.


It's time to get the boats out and ready for this summer.  Cruising the lake before the masses arrive can be so peaceful.  Whether you're sailing, fishing or just going for a peaceful cruise, this summer promises to be another fun-filled time on Lake Winnipesaukee.


Summer Activities


There are so many different activities for you to do this year.  There's many of the old standbys that you can find in the Attractions and Things To Do pages as well as the fun things that can be done in a day trip.  But, I've also added a few more to the list that I recently heard about.  Check out the local current events to find everything available to do.


I, for one, can't wait to enjoy the summer this year.  I plan on being out there sailing as much as possible.  Cruising the lake is just as enjoyable, except our boat broke last summer.  Hopefully, we can switch out the motor and replace the parts to get it up and running soon.  It is an old, classic boat that we love to waterski behind.


If I can't get out on the water as much, I'll still be able to go hiking or even try golfing.  Plus, all these new wineries are popping up in the region, I thought it would be great to try some of those out.




I've been gathering information to add to the Lake Winnipesaukee Travel Guide.  Are there any particular subject areas that you are interested in learning about or reading on this web site?  Sometimes it is difficult to get everything in, but I am looking for any attractions, new restaurants, new places to stay and everything else in between.  Feel free to contact me with your suggestions.  If I feel it would be beneficial to my readers, I will do the research and add it to the Lake Winnipesaukee Travel Guide.


On another note...if any of you want to write an article or contribute writing in your own words about your experiences in the New Hampshire Lake Winnipesaukee area, you can always do this by sharing your stories.  There are a variety of choices to write about.  I think people would be interested in what others have to say about their positive experiences in the lakes region.








Do you have any feedback or suggestions?
