The hotel for the wedding was the Inn at Mills Falls in Meredith NH. We stayed a room with a balcony at Church's Landing.
The wedding ceremony was being held on top of a mountain overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee. We took a school bus up to the mountain and then took a shuttle down to Castle in the Clouds for the reception. Sarah made a beautiful bride, the venue was breath taking and it was great to see the family.

Once the festivities were over, we had time to relax with the family at Church's Landing.

Michael had 2 favorite spots here. The one is in the adironback chairs and the other was in the lobby.
We stayed there for 3 days with Moe and Jim, took a cruise of the lake, read books and ate dinner. chillaxin time.
We then drove to the Cape to visit Linda and Peter for 2 days. We visited a lavender farm, took a hike through the marshlands (yes, I exercised), went to Chatham to hear an a cappella group called Hyannis Harmony, ate at BUCA (my fav on Cape), walked around Chatham to shop and went to a Harwich mariners game. Doesn't get any better than that for the Cape.
Our last stop was to see James Taylor at Tanglewood in Lenox MA; our bucket list item. We stayed at Cranwell Resort. So, unfortunately, this was the bad part of the trip. The resort was overpriced; they stuck us on the third floor of an old mansion with NO elevator, and the a/c didn't work. The worst part was that there was a BAD storm the night of the concert and we had to leave two songs into the concert. If it only rained, we would have stayed but there was dangerous lightening that kept up until 2am so we didn't get to see him.
All in all, we had a great time visiting family and venturing around New England.
