What goes up must come down! 

David Brooks and friends taking down the buoys from our beloved Lobster Trap Christmas Tree.  

I have to say that it would not be an exaggeration to say that thousands of photos were taken of the tree this year. People would just drive up, get out of their cars, take a picture and drive away. I met several from Europe taking them. Being able to walk inside has really made a difference it seems.

Don’t forget the auction of the boeys on January 27 at the Cruiseport!

Great job David and company!  Can’t wait till next year!  Well, in between it is going to be nice to have a great summer….

Steam in the Snow

It’s a bitter cold weekend up here in North Conway…-6 when I got up this morning, but it has warmed up to a balmy 10 degrees!  Doesn’t matter what the weather is, it’s always a great day when you can be outside, whether it be skiing, snowshoeing or just hanging out with my camera!    These pics I’m sharing today are taken a couple years ago and I chose to share them because if you love trains or just love photo ops, each year the Mass Railroad puts on a “Steam in the Snow” at the Conway Scenic Railroad in North Conway, NH.    It’s a ride through Crawford Notch and the train stops at a few spots along the way, everyone gets off, then it backs up and comes through with full steam so everyone can get some great pics!   The steam engine is under repair right now but it’s supposed to be ready for next year so if you are interested, check back in with the Mass Railroad and the Conway Scenic Railroad towards the end of next summer because it sells out fast.   Stay warm today!!untitled-3085-of-321-edit-edit-2untitled-3287-of-321_hdr-edit

Tom Brady is one of the most successful athletes of all time in any sport. He knows that success isn’t decided on Sunday: but in the days, weeks, months, and years leading up to game time. One of my football coaches used to say:

“Cry in the dojo;

Laugh on the battlefield.”

He’s the first player at the training facility in the morning. You hear in the way he answers questions at press conferences his singular focus of preparing himself for the next game. His diet doesn’t consist of Nachos and Jack and Cokes, but wholesome and nourishing food. He isn’t staying up until midnight watching old movies, he’s asleep in bed well before most of…
