The Boat Trip...

Monday through Friday Mother attends a program called Adult Day Out. She leaves home on a bus at 7:45 in the morning and returns home around 4:30. This year for the third year in a row, they received a grant to take the Lake Sunapee Boat Trip. The trip lasts two hours and includes lunch.

This year I was invited to go along and I was very excited as it was something that I have been wanting to do since I moved here...plus this was the first year that they would be using the larger boat and could afford to rent the entire boat.

The boat is totally enclosed and has a nice deck in the front and rear for sitting and enjoying the view...although there are plenty of windows to look out of also.

Here we are pulling away from the dock. Lovely area. Lake Sunapee is a small town but is just lovely to walk around in and see the shops. Plus to add to the shopping, I heard they just opened a new quilt store!!! Hmmm...guess that is going to call for a little trip up there soon!
A view of the lake as we head out. The day was perfect for a boat trip. Sky was beautiful and clear and the lake was just so blue. Not many people were out on the lake boating. I think we only passed one other boat during our trip and very few people were home at the "cottages." Yes, they do call those gorgeous homes "summer cottages"...
Here we have Mother and I...
And, this was the fabulous lunch they served. One of the best stuffed chicken breasts I've eaten in a long time. For dessert there was carrot cake...I do not like carrot cake...but, I would eat that carrot cake anytime. It was soooo good!

Looks like a perfect day (and lunch looks pretty darn good, too!)

That must have been a wonderful outing. As a kid I remember trips down the Mississippi on an old riverboat and I loved it. But I don't think we ever had a lunch like the one you had....that looks delicious.

That's a beautiful area, and carrot cake is my favorite. It's so nice that you could go with your mom on that outing.
