Moving Day Has Surprises!

August 11, 2019

.

We got up early yesterday morning with plans to pack up and move to our next destination in Lanesborough, Massachusetts. We didn’t expect to do much because moving days are usually JUST THAT… we pack up, drive, unpack, and settle in to our new campsite. But yesterday Mummy had a few stops she wanted to make along the way, so we were ready for anything. Before leaving, we posed for a picture with the little STUFFIE MOOSE that Mummy bought for us… since we didn’t see one single moose on our trip to New Hampshire. BUMMER ON THAT SCORE. But we are loving the stuffie and are taking turns playing with him! ?❤️?? ?that’s a deer, but they don’t make a MOOSE emoji so that’s the closest thing we could find! ???

.

Our first stop was at Moulton Farm in Meredith, New Hampshire to get some of their FAMOUS “Cider Bellies Doughnuts.” This place was PACKED with people shopping at the farmer’s market and waiting in a long line to buy the apple-cider donuts that people come from miles around to buy!!! Their signature flavor is the cinnamon-sugar. Mummy ordered 2 of those and 2 Maple drizzle and 2 Baker’s Chocolate drizzle. She and Daddy nibbled on a little piece of all the flavors while they drove off, and Daddy proclaimed them: THE BEST DONUTS HE HAS EVER HAD IN HIS ENTIRE LIFE! Mummy said they were indeed delicious but didn’t think they were quite as good as Daddy did. She still prefers a nice yeast donut over a cake-type donut… but these apple cider varieties were VERY, VERY GOOD!!! Ummmmm… we had nothing. Not a single bite. Rude. Just plain RUDE! ?

.

The next stop was in Walpole, New Hampshire and this was the place that Mummy was REALLY wanting to see! It was the L.A. Burdick Chocolate shop where they make all sorts of fantastic little dainty designer chocolates… most importantly, “chocolate mice.” These little creations are their SIGNATURE chocolate that they have been making for more than 30 years! You can buy just one, or you can buy them in little boxes… Mummy bought a wooden box of 9 that included 3 dark, 3 milk and 3 white chocolate mice. Each color has a different flavor. The dark chocolate mouse has a center of dark chocolate ganache blended with fresh squeezed orange juice. The milk chocolate mouse has a center of dark chocolate ganache blended with espresso. And the white chocolate mouse has a center of dark chocolate ganache blended with cinnamon and port wine. All of the mice have toasted almond ears and little silky tails from colorful embroidery thread. The company ships too, so when Mummy eats all these mice… she can order more! We won’t get any of THESE TREATS EITHER, because obviously doggies can’t have chocolate… so I’m wondering what we are going to get today??? Because we are getting sad right now! ☹️??

.

We finally arrived at our campsite and Mummy let us stretch our little legs and FINALLY gave us a nice snack… it was about time! We straightened up the inside of THE YORKIE EXPRESS while Daddy got everything hooked up outside, then we piled back into the car to take a quick look down the road at a few sights. First off, there was this HUGE ROCK at The Balance Rock State Park and they say that it seems to defy the laws of physics the way it just teeters on top of a slab of bedrock! The boulder is actually a 165-ton rock that is 30-feet long and 15-feet wide and has been balancing like this since the last GLACIAL ERA!!! ??? Apparently, as ice moved across the earth, it picked up debris and big rocks, like this one… then as the glaciers melted away, the boulders were left helter-skelter in all sorts of weird positions and locations! You might see a humongous boulder right in the middle of a field somewhere… and that’s how it got there! It’s sort of sad about all of the graffiti that people have written all over it, but when people started looking closer, they found that there were deep scratch marks made by other people as far back as the early 1800s! So this has been going on for A LONG TIME. ???

.

Our last stop was to take a scenic drive to the top of Mount Greylock. OH NO, NOT ANOTHER MOUNTAIN!!! ? Daddy assured Mummy that this one was a nice leisurely drive with nothing to fear… so up we went! At 3,491 feet, this is the highest mountain in Massachusetts. We stopped near the top at “Adams Overlook” where Mummy took a picture of the town of Adams below and the Berkshire Mountains in the distance. It was a gorgeous view!!! At the summit was the 93-foot-tall granite Veterans War Memorial Tower that was erected in 1933. It honors all U.S soldiers who fought and died in WWI and later conflicts. The view from the top was amazing but it was quite chilly up there so we didn’t stay long… and yes, doggies on leashes are welcome here. ?❤️?? They say that on a clear day you can see parts of FIVE STATES: Vermont, Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York and Massachusetts… but it was a little bit cloudy so I’m not sure if we saw all of them or not… but it sure was pretty. ❤️?⛰ ☁️ The mountain has numerous hiking trails, including an 11 1/2 mile section of the Appalachian Trail! We just saw part of that when we were looking for the MOOSE back in New Hampshire!!!

.

The day was over and our tummies were rumbling… that meant DINNER TIME, so we loaded up and high-tailed it back to camp. Fortunately for us, our camp was just at the base of the mountain, so in no time at all we were tucking into a bowl of Mummy’s homemade doggie dinner and then snuggling up in our blankies on the sofa. This AIRSTREAMING LIFE is pretty amazing. ❤️??⛰??✨⛅️??

The little mice were soooo adorable and very yummy… they make little penguins and for a limited time… elephants! Mummy LOVES ELEPHANTS! She was tempted to get those but the SIGNATURE CANDY is the mouse so that is what she got. They would make perfect gifts although they are a bolit pricey! ???

Sounds like a good day! I was visiting a friend who has a home on Lake Winnepasauki a couple of years ago and she made sure we got to the market for donuts! Yum! It’s been so hot here on Hilton Head that needing jackets on the top of the mountain sounds wonderful! Take your time coming home— and bring some cool weather with you!

Oh What a Wonderful Trip you are Having!
Mum’s been lotsa places, but not there-
The ‘Rock’ sounds amazing! And all those views! I would look, but only if Mums held me – tee hee.
I also loved the sound of those doughnuts and the chocolate! I’m not allowed any bites of those either- but Mums can’t either ? No oil, meat, dairy…..again ?
I will keep reading ( well, Mums reads to me)
Tee hee, I am summering vicariously through you and your Sisters!

An orchard here just opened and they have those wonderful apple cider, cinnamon-sugar doughnuts. Mama says she may as well put them in her jeans as to eat them. They go to hips!! Have fun today!

THANK YOU FOR THE LATEST UPDATE, PRETTY PUP. IT SOUNDS LIKE EVERYONE IS HAVING A GREAT TIME. MY MISTRESS SAYS THAT THERE IS GRAFFITI ON THE PYRAMIDS IN EGYPT THAT WAS PUT THERE SHORTLY AFTER THEY WERE BUILT. SHE SAYS THAT ANCIENT PICTURES ON THE WALLS OF CAVES ARE CAVEMEN’S GRAFFITI. SINCE THEY DID NOT HAVE A WRITTEN LANGUAGE, THEY DREW PICTURES OF THINGS THEY KNEW ABOUT FROM THEIR DAILY LIVES. SHE ALSO SAYS THAT THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT A BIG, BLANK WALL THAT MAKE PEOPLE WANT TO PUT SOMETHING ON IT. HMMM. I HAVE VERY FEW BLANK WALLS IN… Read more »

Oh yes… we know that we can’t eat chocolate. Mummy keeps it way out of reach so it is never near us. We were looking for camping sites near you… thinking we could drive there with our AIRSTREAM, but there are no campgrounds in your near vicinity. It looks like hotels are our only option. ??
