Turns out both Sam and Jess were off from work starting the Monday we were in Burbank, so they decided to all come to Chocorua with us for the week. Pretty nice!
The weather wasn't great, our flights were fine (we couldn't get on the same planes because of the last-minute planning) but their's were so delayed that they didn't get to Chocorua until 3am -- in fine style however, as you see from this photo taken later--in a convertible (one of the last rental cars at the airport).
The weather was a bit too cold for swimming, but wood stove fires felt good
and so did running around during a rain storm, rinsing off the feet under the gutter.
Sam and Toby got the swing up on the willow tree.
We hiked to Heron Pond--kids trying to catch the tiny frogs along the way, grown-ups trying to persuade them to let them go!
Scant luck for finding blueberries--
but much fun in the Panama hammocks!
