North America » United States » New Hampshire » Lincoln October 9th 2015

Days 7 & 8. Early start yesterday for the long drive to Lincoln in New Hampshire, couple of stops on route until we hit the Kancamagus highway, supposedly one of the most scenic roads in New Hamshire, which we have to agree with, especially with the fall colours. Many stopping points & pull in, so many photo's! Hotel not as good as the previous one (think we were rather spoilt there). Another early start today to catch the 8.15 steam train on the cog railway to the top of Mount Washington. It takes an hour to be pushed up to the top,where the temperature was -5. Had an hour at the top & then came back down on the diesel train as it was too cold for the steam engine to stay up there. This afternoon ... read more

Days 5 & 6. After overnight stay in Portland travelled onto Bar Harbor. Driving along the coastal highway, stopping at Camden on the way, a small town with a harbour. Arrived at the Bluenose Inn in Bar Harbor & wow, huge room, bed & bathroom. Amazing view from the balcony. Walked into Bar Harbor, picture postcard town! Watched the sunrise from our balcony this morning & a cruise ship come into the bay. After breakfast spent the day driving around Arcadia national park stopping at various points along the way & finishing up at the top of Cadillac mountain, with amazing vista's and the weather could not have been better!... read more

Day 2 in Boston, after breakfast went on the Boston Duck tour covers both land & water. Then got tickets for the on/off trolley bus as weather wet & quite chilly. Got off at the Massachusetts state House & went in to get out of the rain for a while, very interesting. Still raining when we came out but not too hard so walked for a while, taking in Cheers & the Trinity church (the oldest church in Boston). Then after dinner went up to the skywalk in the Prudential Centre to have a look at the Boston skyline at night.... read more

Today we arrived in boston after a non eventful flight. Quickly through the airport to get a taxi to the Colonnade hotel. A room with the wow factor, loads of space and a huge bed each! We also met our new friend for the holiday, Colonnade Duck :-) Went for a walk, as far as Boston Common, taking in the sights on the way & a visit to the cheesecake factory on the way back. Early night after a long day, ready for a duck tour of Boston in the morning.... read more
