White Mountains trip Day 6.. shopping and scenery.

 

Bethel is a lovely little mountain village with some quirky shops.

With a heavy accent on the Yeti for some reason.

We stopped in a gallery….

Filled with local artists…

Moose…

And numerous paintings of vegetables.

Thanks, but I prefer them on my plate… not my walls.

Heading out of town we passed a gorgeous old Victorian.

And a stately old colonial.

A home like that would be my dream… that, and enough money to buy one of those grand old dames and update their interiors.

New houses have no charm.

We cruised along enjoying the scenery…

And the views.

Damn, could you imagine having that for your back yard?

Not too shabby.

A little farther down the road the husband spotted some new construction and turned in to check them out.

By the look of the views? I knew we couldn’t afford it.

The properties were a good size.

With special attention paid to make sure no home blocked another’s view.

So if I win the lottery?

Look for me living here in the autumn.

Number 15 looks just fine…

We have a version of this sign over our way, so it tickled me to see one in the mountains.

Yes, those really are all the names of Maine towns.

Day 6 done, we headed back to our resort for dinner at Camp.

I liked the upscale rustic theme…

Sitting under a lighted canoe…

And a yummy salt brined citrus roasted chicken dinner.

 

 

 

Too good not to share… the finale.

 

Crazy real estate agent’s photos part 3, and let’s start it off with a bang.

Or a boom as the case may be..

There’s so much wrong with this I don’t even know where to start. Aside from the obvious WTF factor…. this guy looks like he’s getting ready to goose you. Why are his hands open wide? Why do you have to reach into his chest to flush? And considering what he must see everyday… why  the hell is he smiling?

 

 

Wow.

Someone clearly had too much time… and acrylic paint… on their hands.

 

IMG_5683

 

Just your normal bathroom/dining room combo…

 

IMG_5686

 

And bathroom/kitchen combo….

 

IMG_E5690

 

And bathroom/bedroom combo.

 

 

Porches.

 

IMG_5691

 

Not just for outside anymore.

 

IMG_5688

 

When you live in the city… but your wife really wants a cow.

 

IMG_5680

 

Because sun shade awnings are stylish anywhere.

 

IMG_5689

 

Proof positive there is such a thing as too much togetherness.

Truly.

I’m not sure what’s more disturbing about this bizarre bathtub… the fact that it’s covered in carpet?

That it has 4 decorative poles?

Or that it appears to have an electric heater installed on the side?

 

 

 

I don’t know.

I really don’t.
