Pilgrim Pines, West Swanzey, NH

My sister Deborah and I took our time driving up to Pilgrim Pines from Boston. Our route passed through Concord, MA via Route 2, where we stopped for refreshment and a peek in Grasshopper -– a clothing shop I like. I got a great pair of cotton yoga pants, which I really needed.

Off we went then to Peterborough, NH, a lovely town with lots of interesting shops, eateries, and the great Sharon Arts Center Craft Gallery that features local NH artists. Deb and I enjoyed our stay there. Lunch was delicious at the Twelve Pine Restaurant & Market, a casual place where you can get salads, sandwiches, soups and other delectable food and drink. We then went over to the gallery and the book store before heading over to Pilgrim Pines.

What a wonderful greeting from Chuck. He and his wife, Liz, took us out to dinner and welcomed us warmly to the camp. I have a lovely cabin with kitchen for the week. Deb stayed the night.
