As many of you know, I have a love of New Hampshire that is long and deep. Starting as a camper on Newfound Lake in 1962, I have returned again and again over the many years since. The lake is wondrous with its ever-changing moods and vistas dictated by climate and season. So, at last, I own a little piece of this place. In late August, Juliet and I bought a condo in a very small development right on the lake. It is the unit I have been renting for three weeks each summer since 2016, so owning it is a dream come true.

It has been thirty eight years, however, since I last experienced the glory of high autumn in New Hampshire, and Juliet had never done so. It was with great enthusiasm, then, that we came to spend twelve days in our new home to see the fall foliage ablaze. It does not disappoint.

The daytime temperatures are surprisingly warm, the evenings unsurprisingly chilly. The colors around the lake are still muted, but elsewhere, as we visit other parts of the state and neighboring Vermont, we are awed over and over at the displays of red, yellow, and orange as we traverse the quiet country roads and hike in the mountains.


  1. The fall colors look beautiful and congratulations on the new purchase of your little piece of heavenly- home.

  2. Hey Adele- congrats, it sounds and looks wonderful! Let me know should you be passing by Brooklyn, it works be fun to reconnect.

  3. So glad I could share it with you for a day!

  4. So gorgeous and how satisfying to enjoy it in your own home!

  5. Congrats on owning a piece of your wonderful lake, Adele! I hope our paths will cross there now! I’ve been a part time Denison of the lake area since 51, the year of my birth! It becomes a part of us.

    • So beautiful! Such a stunning season.

  6. So good to see you and that we provided a glorious autumn display.

  7. Congrats Adele on the purchase. Coincidently we will be in Vermont next week. Looking forward to those beautiful fall colors you captured in your pictures.

  8. Autumn in New England is incredible, dearest Adele! I am so happy for you and Juliet to experience the wonder of the seasons glory. I adore Autumn.

  9. Gorgeous!

  10. So happy that you found a place of your own for your annual fall retreat. I hope you enjoy it for many years to come.
