Onwards took us up the valley to North Conway with all its shops and factory outlets, past the ski area and with a final look back we crossed over by Mount Washington. Remember on our first visit here we went up to the summit to check out where the highest winds ever had been recorded (now you'll have to look back for that one).
We did a couple of circles to climb in order to cross over the mountains then we were on over the next valley where we had been looking for moose last weekend, following the river and road up to Berlin. Here was another airstrip, so for Doug's logbook records we landed, turned around, went back down the runway, turned again then took off to resume our flying - such excitement I hear you all say - but I was still the one with the big grin.
Back over the state of Maine we headed for another little airfield to repeat this exercise, still with the grin
Continuing on took us past a corn maze that had been on the local news only the night before, as we turned for a repeat look at the house with 2 RV's (won't get rid of this grin for a while) we flew over some trees damaged by a tornado that touched down within a mile of Doug and 'Trish's home earlier in the year. House found, another circle or two and it was back over that lake in order to return to Laconia airfield and our final landing of the day - Doug's sixth - 3 hours of flying. I did get to "fly" a couple of times myself during the day, thanks for that confidence in me Doug, especially as the first time was towards that mount Washington.
Well with the grin still there we drove back, this time via the top of the lake returning for dinner, not realizing we had completely missed lunch!
Betsy said she would have come out to wave if she had known we were there - where did she think we'd been?
Flying eh - boats, 'planes and RV's - the grin just won't go. Hope you enjoyed it too.
