Old friends on Squam

I just came back from a wonderful few days at Anne Cook’s house on Squam Lake with some Baha’i friends. Most of us were young mothers when we met about 40 years ago. We have gone in different directions, Dawn lives in Ireland; Margaret (and Tom) in Atlanta; Suellen in Burlington; Pat, Anne, Diane and I are still in the Upper Valley.

The whole group: Nancy, Dawn, Margaret, Tom, Diane, Anne, Suellen, Pat

Anne’s house has an incredible view which changes constantly.


I got out on the water a couple of times, and saw some animals.

Mostly we sat around and talked, (and ate).

A highlight of the weekend for me was a rainbow at dawn, a full arc.
