Webster Lake - Franklin, NH

Webster Lake – Franklin, NH

Saturday Road Trip

It was a gloomy gray day today – so I decided to take a drive to Franklin to see Webster Lake. It had been decades since I had been there. My folks came along with me. It didn’t take us long at all to find the lake. There were not many people around so we parked in the parking lot, and my mom and I walked out to the beach.

A Marine Patrol officer was in the lot pulling his patrol boat on a trailer (most likely taking it in for the season – not much going on this time of year). My mom asked how we could get to the other side of the lake, and he told her which road to take. My mom remembered her dad taking them to Webster Lake. She also remembered going to the beach on the other side of the lake often in her youth. I vaguely remember going to the lake.

I looked around for eagles because I have heard that eagles often frequent Webster Lake. A woman on Facebook has been posting great eagle shots taken at the lake. All was very quiet today!

On the way back home, I took a detour in Franklin and swung by Keith and Wanda Belyea’s house. My folks had not seen them for about 4 years and never had been to their new house. We were in luck, they were home. My folks got the tour of their house, and we visited for a short time. Keith has been busy gardening and canning. My folks came away with lots of tomatoes and string beans from the garden. They also got green tomato mincemeat, pickles, and relish that Keith had canned.

It was a nice impromptu visit.
