The Beautiful Wildlife Near 125 Windermere

Bald Eagle About to Fly Near 125 Windermere Road, Moultonborough, NH

An inviting neighborhood for wildlife and a protected bay with long views are some of the features home owners in the Windermere Association enjoy.  The Bald Eagle pictured here prefers the quiet and wooded areas around the Windermere Association. 

Flying from a tall tree on Winnipesaukee, the Bald Eagle is a stunning site!

While Eagles and Loons provide some of the most beautiful sites and sounds on Lake Winnipesaukee, the Loon Preservation Committee needs support to help keep Lake Winnipesaukee a home for these rare birds.

Slowing down for Loons when boating will help keep these birds a part of our NH history.

The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Fact Sheets have information on how to help keep Winnipesaukee clean.

If boating regulations, including speed limits are followed, this will go a long way to help keep wildlife safe on Winnipesaukee.  

2 loons ride the large weekend waves on Winnipesaukee.

Common courtesy for other boaters and and respect for the lake is critical in the long term survival of the lake.  With extraordinary warm weather and low gas prices the lake has been more inviting to boaters this summer.  By educating ourselves on practices to keep the lake clean, we can keep the lake beautiful for future generations.

In an election year, why not ask your candidates what they intend to do to help keep NH's lakes clean?  

The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services and the New Hampshire Lakes Management and Protection Program  need very strong support from the legislature to do their job well and to keep our New Hampshire lakes and ponds healthy.  


Water conservation is a related issue that is especially important in drought years, such as 2016. Water Conservation Practice Fact Sheets can be found on the NH DES website regarding water conservation. The Fact Sheets WD-DWGB-26-18 - WD-DWGB-26-23 are especially helpful for homeowners.  Arsenic and bacteria levels can change in years that parts of drinking wells that are usually submerged become dry.  Ask your water or well company for information on water testing.

 

 

 

 

 

Rocco's Pick of the Week: Tuftonboro NH Open House on Labour Day

Rocco and his Best Friend Make 58 Eaglemere Road, a Winnipesaukee Waterfront Home in Tuftonboro,

Their Winnipesaukee Pick of the Week!

Visit Labour Day Weekend Open Houses

September 3rd and September 4th 10 AM - 12 PM

at 58 Eaglemere Road, Tuftonboro, NH.

Gunnison's prairie dogs of the U.S. and Mexico are said to have their own sophisticated language including adjectives, nouns, verbs, and all the nuances of lanugage. This is according to Dr. Slobodchikoff's videotaped studies as written in Temple Grandin's book, "Animals in Translation". It is surmised that the prairie dogs' language grew as a survival mechanism from many years of being prey.

Winnipesaukee dogs are considerably more coddled.  My dog, Rocco gets the cutest toys from WinniPaws boutique pet store in Wolfeboro, and need not worry about procuring his next meal, much less being someone's next meal.  The concept of being prey is foreign to him.  The concept of a boat ride to a beautiful property is his pinnacle of excitement.

Boating by by beautiful 58 Eaglemere Road is especially picturesque at sunset and, as pictured below, at Twilight, coincidentally referred to as the hour between wolf and dog.

Rocoo boating by 58 Eagelmere, is inspired by its beauty.

While Rocco is clearly at his most philosophical and erudite self while boating by Winnipesaukee's 58 Eaglemere Road, we can not guarantee that all human beings will have such exceptional intuition and perception. If they are similarly inspired to be their best at this exceptional Winnipesaukee home, Rocco and I will attribute that to great taste!
