Meret is going away for a week with her bioDad. This is sad, but it does give Stef and me the chance to get outta town for a bit. We could go to Provincetown, maybe, but does anyone know anything about the lake area in New Hampshire? Castle in the Clouds? Anywhere that it hasn’t been raining for the the past 5 weeks? That would be good too.

They have all your basic hotels if that's what you want, Hampton Inn etc, but if you're looking for full on vacation, google Lake Champlain rentals, they have a ton of cottage rentals that run along the lake. And the lake is ginormous. Lots of marinas, boating etc. And for dining, night life, Church Street market place is awesome, it's like a mini Faneuil Hall slice of Boston, except overlooking a lake and green mountains.

That sounds amazing. Thanks!

Oh and for lake cottages, Mallet's Bay is a nice place to stay, just ten minutes from downtown too.

We had a very nice vacation in Burlington in 1998. There's a bike path along the lake if you like cycling. It's a nice college town with a single A minor league baseball team. If you're there on Shabbat check out the Conservative synagogue which uses (or used when we were there) a siddur published by the reconstructionist shul in Montreal.

On the drive up stop for lunch in Brattleborough. The supermarket sized food co-op has a dining area, and the Common Ground restaurant is wonderful (but might only be open for supper).
