Our first weekend in New Hampshire featured a lovely Sunday morning in North Conway where we all drove to watch and cheer Sara as she ran a half marathon.
As our time drew to a close in New Hampshire, Meg and I enjoyed several new experiences. First, we had the opportunity to attend a jury trial that Michael, as a deputy prosecutor in Manchester, was presenting. He handles major felony cases, and has an excellent grasp of facts, law, technology, and technique.
On Saturday, Meg and I accompanied him and Kenai, his golden retriever, on a pheasant hunt along the Contoocook river. Fall colors lingered, the walk was refreshing, and the two of them got a pheasant. The pheasant medallions made an excellent dinner. We also went to an apple orchard on Gould Hill where over two dozen varieties of apples were for sale in a large barn that had been converted into a sales facility. Sampling such a range of apples truly stimulated the taste buds and reminded us how much we miss at the major supermarkets.
