30 September 2013
2013 was a fun year. We did a little traveling. Ski trips included going up to the North Conway area for a week with the Wildes. The snow was pretty good and I always enjoy snowshoeing around Dolly Copp.
We took Bud to Mazatlan for the first time. Fair to say he had a great time and can't wait to go back. We started in Tucson for a couple of days then drove to Phoenix for the flight down.
We went to Los Osunas, Goat Island, the Mercado, top of the Freeman, and enjoyed our stay at El Cid Marina. We took a wonderful sunset cruise as well.
We rented a ski house in Maine with the Wildes, Olivia, and Karyn and Ralph. We had a great stay. There was a hottub, a fire pit, and snowshoe trails all over the property. We got to bring Zdeno, which was special for me.
We took the guys at the shop to a basketball game. We also got the mini-season ticket plan for the Bruins. We had great times at all the games. Won more than lost.
The hearth show was in Florida this year. There was not a lot new so we blew off a day and drove out to the coast to visit NASA. Got to meet an astronaut and and tour the museum. Amazing!
Art and I took a vacation with just the two of us this year. We drove up through Maine, staying at Bar Harbor for a few days, then up to Nova Scotia where we rented a house for a few days, then ultimately up to PEI. We stayed with a fabulous airbnb host and enjoyed the beautiful weather. The people were so nice and the views were spectacular. This is one I could do again! One of our favorite moments when we walked into town on Sunday afternoon to look for a pub. We found a nice quaint place and sat down for a beer. A rather large group of people joined together for a sit in song time for Irish music. Amazing!
In August the family rented a house up in Campton for the week. We had a great time hiking, sitting on the deck watching stars, and just hanging out in general. On the rainy day we went to the local ice arena to skate. Very fun day and great trip overall.
I also took my parents up to Maine for a few days when they came to visit for my birthday. It was a little chilly but we had a nice stay and even got to go lobstering for the day!
