Summer 2014 - Back in New Hampshire
Our Devlin 32 KELINA cruising at 20 knots on the Piscataqua River in Newington, New Hampshire
The first thing Nancy did when we got home from
France at the end of July was to get a new puppy!
This is Adeline, or Addie, an 8-week-old
Norwich Terrier puppy. Our snow dog,
Madison was also a Norwich Terrier.
We finally got the KELINA launched and out for a spin in early August.
Addie's first boat ride!

Addie meets a BIG dog!
To celebrate my upcoming 70th birthday, we brought the whole family together at Branch Lake near Ellsworth, ME.
Five kids and six grandchildren! From left to right, back row: Michael, Nancy, Henry M (me), Meg, Charlotte,
Eva, Leithan, Mary, Neddie, Hal & Henry A. Front row: Paul, Rose, Lucy, Georgia & Addie.
My oldest son, Henry A, brought his Boston Whaler and
pulled anyone who wanted to try it on water-skis. His
youngest daughter, Neddie got the hang of it immediately.
Mouse-over to see a close-up of her in action.
I was happy to discover I could still do it too!
It's been about 20 years since I last tried this.

In mid-November, with KELINA stored
for the winter, we will head south to begin
again our adventures with Sno' Dog.

Hiking in the Maine woods with Addie
- who is now 6 months old.
Fall color comes to Madison Street in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
She's certainly a unique and pretty boat, but the time may have
come to move on...
Madison Street, Portsmouth, New Hampshire - October 25. 2014
On November 1st, we drove up to Maine to visit my daughter Charlotte and family
in Blue Hill. On Sunday morning, it began to snow. By Sunday evening, there was
over a foot of snow and the power was out. (Elect Co. says it could be several days!)
Arriving at Charlotte's Blue Hill house, Addie in the lead.
More than frost on these pumpkins. Time to head south!
Driving south on Route 1 near Bucksport, Maine.
After a 5-hour drive back to Portsmouth, the setting sun
came out giving our house a red glow. Quite a different
scene from snowy Maine!
