Summertime in Newbury, New Hampshire

Town meeting’s come and gone in Newbury, New Hampshire, yet on a warm, lazy summer day like this, there is something eternal about the banner across the country road.


Or the checkerboard put out on the sidewalk in front of some shops.

Or the flowers on the bridge over the southernmost cove of Lake Sunapee, where motorboats pull up to the dockside restauraunt, called The Anchorage.

But, change does come here, too. Newbury, incorporated in 1837, had taken a fling at being “Dantzic”, “Hereford” and “Fisherfield” before the final moniker. Change comes, but maybe it’s just a little slower. Or, maybe it just seems that way in summer.

Gosh, we used to go to Sunapee when I was a boy--that sure brings back some memories! Doesn't look like things have changed too much in Newbury--love the photo of the checkerboard!

Hi, John, thanks for stopping by. Still pretty much the same as when you were a boy? Good to know there are still a few "lost in time" places around.
