Summer Traffic in a Lake Resort Town
By Becky Whitcher,
Summer Traffic. It’s the talk of the town this time of year. Seeing that I am a local and know my way around these parts I thought I would offer some helpful hints to those of you who haven’t learned the short cuts. If you don’t know the shortcuts, then you can’t get theah from heah!
If you’re going to Center Harbor or Moultonborough from I-93, be sure to take Route 104 (Exit 23) to Meredith. But before you get into town, take that road on the left that goes out to Dr. Vorsek’s old place and follow it and it’ll come out kind of near Belknap College. Take that road by the field with the rock that looks like a bear and go past where dad used to go hunting for the bear that looked like a rock and it’ll bring you right into Center Harbor. When you get to Center Harbor don’t forget to get some groceries at Heath’s. Shop local!
If you need to get through Meredith from the traffic circle (or the “roundabout” as the DOT folks call it), take the back road where the Spragues used to live and where the Ruels still do, and go all the way to the bottom and scoot out across the road to that other road where you get to the back entrance of Doc Nadeau’s old clinic.
Go to the bottom of the hill past McHughs and Sedley Bartlett’s house. If the traffic is backed up on Main Street, take a left by Dr. Dennault’s office and then a right at the Cloughs. That’ll bring you around to the back parking lot of Anderson’s Bakery and Allaire’s Furniture Store. Go through the lot and over the bridge past Weeks’ store and then up the hill where they used to go sliding, shoot through the church parking lot, go left up over the hill and around and come out at the other church. Our office is there on the left at 3 Main Street where Vernal Drake’s office was located for years, right around the corner from the Dairy Bar. You’ll really feel like a local when you pull that out of your bag of tricks.
