Today was Sunday. We got up a little bit later and went into Newport for brunch at The Old Courthouse. Our meal was delicious and it was a wonderfully relaxing morning. While a young man played classical piano in the background, we enjoyed Chef Robert’s veggie omelets and French toast, a selection of pastries and fruit, and the unique ambiance of the Federalist-era building.
After brunch, we stopped back at the condo to regroup, then headed down to Sunapee Harbor. There was a boat parade in progress when we walked up.
We hiked the recently developed Riverwalk trail, then enjoyed a quick scoop of ice cream before hopping aboard a boat cruise of Lake Sunapee. From the boat, we had great views of the lake and the fascinating “summer homes”- many of which date back to the 1930s- that surround the area.
Then we walked around the harbor and bought a few souvenirs.
For dinner, we stopped at a restaurant called One Mile West. I had my first lobster roll up here this trip (think a light tuna salad, but with lobster instead of tuna, and served on a New-England-cut roll). Stuffed, we headed home and did some walking around the condo. The guys took the kids up to the tennis court for a quick game. We all stayed up later that night to watch the Perseids again (and saw some really good ones).
