Boating, swimming, Hiking and a little motorcycle riding in to round off the weekend!!
We started the morning early. I mean, real early. We had the crazy idea of getting up with the sun and going out on the water.
Despite going to bed late and not setting an alarm, my open window echoed the sounds of chirping birds at the not-yet-light hour of 4:45. I rolled over, shook the wife (in a not so sweet manner due to the disbelief that I was actually up) and said it's time to get going.
The water was glass and the jet boat (Seadoo Utopia 205) was able to unleash all 240 hp that it had available to it. I've never had it going that fast on the lake before.
In no time we made our way to Center Harbor
Everything was still quiet. Probably not 6:00 am as of this photo. We spun around and scouted out a route to a friends new house who was across the lake, but on the water. On the way over we scouted out these two loons enjoying the quiet morning before all the tourists made their way to the rental boats.
I have nothing against tourists - I just wish more of them knew how to drive a boat.
Speaking of those that don't know how to drive a boat....
I'm trying to teach her, Cat has it down pretty good in the open but gets nervous in the tighter areas. All in her head, but it gets easier with experience.
A FEW SHORT HOURS LATER....
Not to be done with the day, and only being 9:00 am by now. We decided that climbing Mt. Major would be a good idea.
Up we went. We took the left route which is more direct but a heck of a lot steeper.
But the view
With the day fading, but not over we decided to grab the motorcycles and take them out for a spin over the Moulton Farm
They have Cold Brew on tap!
On the way home, we made a quick pit stop.
It's just a little track for people far younger than us to goof off on, but I paid for two rounds and it was worth it. The first time I had a car that just couldn't find it's limited top speed... The second time I'm sure that I got the fastest car on the lot and left everyone in the dust.
It was a jam packed weekend and got to sneak a lot of fun things in while the kid was at camp. Oh, don't worry about her, she was with horses the whole time living a little girl's dream.
