Denis Beaulieu

Denis Beaulie and some other ARA members and friends use their isolation time to build trails for the community in Barrington.

First Fall Hike with ARA

22 ARA members enjoyed a beautiful Friday morning hiking the Winnie-The-Pooh trail in Barrington.

Kayak for RGB


A sad day to paddle and float a flower wreath, in gratitude, on the out going tide of the Salmon Falls and Cocheco Rivers carrying the memory of RBG to the Atlantic. Such a large footprint for one so small. Pat DeGrandpre

Joanne Boyle

Joanne has spent some of her isolation time writing poetry. Writing is always a good outlet during challenging times. Anyone journaling their COVID experiences?

Pat DeGrandpre

Pat DeGrandpre participated in the ARCH history tour of Salmon Falls River today where water lilies were magnificent and the loosestrife and pickerel weed were glowing a purplely/magenta Backdrop.

Beautiful pictures Pat!

Penny and Mike Drooker

Meadow Lake in Northwood Meadows State Park is often cited as the source of the Lamprey River, but a very good case can be made for nearby much-smaller Demon Pond, at a higher elevation, as a better candidate. We greatly enjoyed hiking around both of them last week!

Friends Kayaking













ARA friends Jan Phelps, Pat DeGrandpre, Cheri Bach, and Linda Benton did their social distancing from Kayaks. 

 Beautiful morning paddle on the Salmon Falls River.

Linda Benton and Richard Kirkpatrick

Linda, Richard and some other ARA members enjoyed The Seacoast African American Cultural Center exhibit by Pete Souza, President Obama’s Chief Official White House Photographer, entitled Obama: An Intimate Portrait.  It is well worth making a reservation to see it.
