The next day we got up and had a massive breakfast of eggs and blueberry-apple pie. Yum! B and J had to leave to do some tending of the wedding site, so we stuck around for a while to shower and wait for their cat, Houdini, to come inside. They have raccoons and don’t like to leave her outside without the humans around. Yikes.
Then we made our way up Rt 93 again, towards Franconia Notch. We picked a campground just outside of the park, at Russel Pond, figuring the Memorial Day weekend crowd might have filled up the spots in Lafayette campground inside the park. It’s a lovely spot, with a warm pond and a beach, but the drive up there is slightly hairy. So many potholes! We spent another lazy day, reading on the beach.
