The Salina Journal Entertainment Sunday, Feb. 2,1986 Page? Travel (Continued from Page 6) scripts. The special collections room is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (call 603464-2037). Outside of Hanover, there are a number of charming towns to explore. Try Lyme (north of Route 10), once the most productive sheep-raising town in New England, now a quiet place with a long and graceful common, or Etna, a village nestled into the foothills. In Orford, just past Lyme on Route 10, there is a notable row of Bui- finch houses. Evenings The Hopkins Center, with its concert halls, theaters, studios and art galleries — four acres of floor space in all — has a busy winter schedule. The schedule includes performances of the Ohio Ballet (Feb. 2728) and the Ballet Hispanico (April 4-5), "Great Expectations" (March 27-28) and "Two Gentlemen of Verona" (Feb. 12-15 and Feb. 19-22) and Zagreb Philharmonic (Feb. 12) and the Dresden Chamber Orchestra (April 17), the Handel Society Chorus (March 1), the Muir String Quintet (Feb. 18), the Chicago Brass Quintet (April 1) and the American premiere of the Janacek opera "Fate." For information about tickets, call the box office (603-646-2422), open daily until 8 p.m. Restaurants There are several relatively new, perilously-close-to- cosmopolitan establishments. Among them is D'Artagnan, in the restored 18th-century Ambrose Publick House in Lyme, offering nouvelle cuisine (sample: fresh rabbit with red wine pears, sauce poivrade). Dinner for two, with wine, costs about $80 (menu prix fixe at $24 and $26.50). Open Wednesday through Sunday for dinner, Sunday for lunch, closed March 11-26, call 603-795-2137. In Hanover, just off Main Street is Cafe La Fraise, nouvelle cuisine (very good pate and veal entrees) in a warm and romantic setting — the renovated 1825 Bartlett House. A recent dinner, with wine and drinks, cost $80 for two (closed Sunday and Monday, 603-642-8588). And on Main Street itself is Bentley's, with a menu that includes tempura as well as Cajun- style fried fish ($40 for two, closed Monday, 603-643-4075). The old favorites have not lost much. The Hanover Inn has a polished Colonial-style main dining room with a view out to the green (a sampling: Down East scallop and lobster pie, mesquite-grilled beef, $70 for two, call 603443-4300) and the inn's Byble & Drum is a popular place for drinks (the tavern, in the basement, offers entertainment and is open late). The Lyme Inn, at the head of Lyme's common, has a peaceful and romantic setting as well as a reliable Continental menu ($60 for two, call 603-795-2222). For more casual dining, there may be no better place than Peter Christian's tavern on Main Street, with a sister establishment in New London ($20 for two at either place). The cozy tavern is especially popular hi winter for its thick soups, home-baked breads and desserts, and hot mulled cider.

Ks. 67401 913-825-0537 Travel Q&A By The New York Times Question: Four of us would like to charter a sailboat, with skipper, hi the Hawaiian Islands or hi the South Pacific, possibly Samoa or Tahiti. Could you tell me what the best time of year is to do this and the names of places from which to charter? Answer: According to experienced sailors, the strong currents, lack of safe anchorages and limited availability of boats in Hawaii make those islands unattractive for sailboat chartering. Much of the activity there is day sailing close to shore. In the South Pacific, sailing is popular the year round, but more rain is likely from December through March. Among yacht charter agents with long experience in the South Pacific is Windward Leeward Yacht Charters (1212A Union Street, San Francisco, Calif. 94109; 415441-1334 or, outside the 415 area code, 800-9224874). The company arranges both bareboat and crewed charters, particularly in Tahiti and the Kingdom of Tonga. Susan Karatsis, owner of the company, says Tahiti and Tonga offer more attractive sailing than Samoa, where few boats are available. She added that a 40-foot boat in Tahiti, with a skipper (but no cook) and all provisions, costs about $800 a person a week, based on a party of four. Another agent that provides sailboats — crewed only — in the South Pacific is Holiday Yacht Charters (300 East 54th Street, New York, N.Y. 10022; 212-9354630). The company owns three yachts of its own and represents owners of many others, including boats in Tahiti, Fiji, Papua New Guinea and Australia.
