Author of Madam, Have You Ever Really Been Happy? An Intimate Journey through Africa and Asia


Here I am back in New Hampshire at the family cottage on Lake Winnipesaukee. The swimming is glorious and the weather perfect. This year the entire family descended, including married granddaughter, Cally, and husband, Zack. traveling from York, England. How about that? Together we are eleven!

Our first mountain expedition was the traditional Mt. Major near Alton, NH. It’s small but has trails that include sweet cliffs and ledges. A great starter. Tomorrow we head for the biggie…Mt. Washington. Will get back to you on that. This is great training for my return to the Himalayas in November. Nothing, except the increased altitude, is more challenging than Lion’s Head or Huntington Ravine on Washington.

Here is the Peterson gang, with Winnipesaukee and its islands in the distance.

    My family stayed at your cottage on the lake in July 2002 and have such wonderful memories. The cottage was so homey, the views spectacular and we still pull out the scrapbook every couple of months to view the pictures. One of the best vacations we ever had! Ruth from California

  7. I do believe all of the ideas you’ve offered in your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
