Finished reading: When We Cease to Understand the World by Benjamin Labatut 📚This was a Gift from my wife and I had no idea what it was about but I really enjoyed it.
Recent time outdoors
Here are a few points of interest I love to visit in the White Mountains of New Hampshire
There are a few general areas to visit.
There are a few different attractions right around Mount Washington. There are also a few spots to eat in Gorham, just north of the area.
Growing up my dad would ensure that we took at least one trip up the Mount Washington Auto Road.
The Glen Ellis Falls are amazing and only a short walk from the main road.
Storyland is an amusement park in the area.
The hub of the White Mountains always has tons of activities and food opportunities.
Take a ride on the Conway Scenic Railway
I love driving the Kancamagus highway and always make a point of stopping at Rocky Gorge to wander along the river.
Check out the rock climbers as they ascend Cathedral Ledge
You can make a whole day of activities on the Interstate 93 corridor. There are several activities and some great spots to eat in the Lincoln/Woodstock area.
Explore the caves at the Lost River Gorge
Loon Mountain has lots of activities at the top and bottom of the mountain.
Take a leisurely walk through the woods and visit the Flume Gorge
Check out the Lonesome Lake Hike if you are looking for a good introduction to hiking in the White Mountains.
I love taking drone pictures at the shore.
Busy weekend at home and wrapped it up on Sunday night with dinner at the beach.

Spotted this woodpecker during our evening walk
First game of the season
And 10 years after our first opening day we had our last one. So excited for one last season of baseball.
Currently reading: Light from Other Stars by Erika Swyler 📚. Book club with my bride.
Finished reading: 1984 by George Orwell. I probably read this before but as per usual hadn’t really comprehended what was going on. Hopefully I did a better job this time. 📚
Newport, Rhode Island trip
Easter egg time even for the cat.
I went back up to Sunday River for the last time this season. It started out great and then it started to rain so I came home.
We had a lovely date night at Moxy. We had like six different little plates and they were delicious.
HBO Max has added a shuffle play button, which will allow random plays of episodes on 45 shows, with the tech doing the selections.
The streamer said the shuffle button has been one of its most-requested features
What monsters are requesting this feature?
Finished reading: Star Wars The High Republic: Out of the Shadows by Justina Ireland 📚
My annual physical was scheduled for tomorrow, but because my son has COVID I had to reschedule it. The earliest date I could get was April 2023. Oof
Beautiful snowy morning
Two years ago I went into the client’s office for the last time before the pandemic. I briefly returned to the office after receiving my second vaccination in June of 2021, but ended up back at home after a couple weeks. Today I went back into the office again and it was great. I was a little more distracted because there were other people around and it was much more annoying to have to get up and find a conference room for meetings, but the lunch sure was better. I won’t be back everyday because sometimes the amount of meetings don’t make it worth it but I expect to go in at least a few days a week.
Yay for going out to dinner
