I’m back…

I’m back!!!!. Our trip to La Jolla and San Diego is exactly what the doctor ordered. It’s amazing how a few short days can do wonders for the mind and psyche. Mr. B and I spent a few days at La Estancia Hotel in La Jolla, California (pictured below). Then we moved on to San Diego where we checked into a beautiful historic hotel. We frequented some favorite places, as well as discovered a few new ones. I can’t wait to share more with you in the upcoming days. Meanwhile, I am back at work daydreaming about our next vacation already….I told you wanderlust has got the best of me! By the way….How was your 4th?  I hope it was fabulous…

To rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes in the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.   –John Lubbock



In yesterday’s post I wrote about National Library Week. And while I love books, I will be the first to admit that I rarely have time to read one.  I have been wanting to book (no pun intended) a relaxing vacation to get caught up with things on my reading list. For quite some time Mr. B and I have talked about spending some “down time” on Lake Winnipesaukee and I wish I could find a place like Boulder Lodge that was available to the public. Boulder Lodge is actually a gorgeous 6 acre property built in 1840 with over 600 feet along the lake. It was once owned by the Lipton family and is currently on the market for $4.5 million. In addition to the main house, it is developed with 5 guest cottages making it the quinntessential camp-like compound. I don’t think I would actually like to own a place like Boulder Lodge due to the amount of upkeep it would require to maintain it properly but I wouldn’t mind being a guest for an extended period of time. It looks like the perfect peaceful retreat to enjoy some quiet time. If you know anyone who wishes to purchase it be sure to ask them if they can spare a room (or a cottage!) for a few nights. Afterall, I have some reading to do.
