Woke up to sunshine and warmth......what a beautiful sight. We have deceided to go see the castle in the clouds. It is not far from the campsite and it is up, what they call, a mountain. It was a single lane going up with mountain on one side and trees and ravine on the other. I just kept watching the road and we made it. Once you are at the top, you catch a trolley and go the rest of the way up. The view is fabulous of Lake Winnipesaukee. It reminded us of looking over the Gulf islands. The home was built in 1914 and is amazing. Things that we thought weren't around in those days were in this house. It had built in vacumn system, an intercom throughout the house and stable. The showers were semi circular with a shower head like those you can buy today. He built the house from materials around the mountain and he brought in a 1000 workers to make sure it would be done quickly. They also had a restaurant up there so we stopped for lunch. Then it was back to the trailer and take Candy for a walk to the beach and watch all the people arriving for the weekend. We ended up with many new neighbours and lots of kids. So nice to see so many people!
