06-05-2015 Journal–A Day in Portsmouth!   Leave a comment

Last Wednesday was a day we don’t often have.  My better-half and I were able to combine some semi-decent weather with one of her rare days off. We decided to start our day in Portsmouth, NH where we could shop a little, enjoy people watching, and take a few updated photographs of the waterfront and harbor.

Even though the weather wasn’t perfect (cloudy and chilly) we still enjoyed roaming around Old Town.  The shops there are as diverse as they can possibly be making the visits much more interesting.  Jewelry, clothing, trinkets, and of course food.  We did our best to sample and purchase a little of everything.

The older part of town is filled with many interesting buildings that have been repurposed many times over the years. Lots of college and high school students filling the streets to make things even more interesting.  I have to say that the new fad of coloring one’s hair a vibrant blue doesn’t do much for me but I’m acquiring a real appreciation for the women’s new obsession with tights. OMFG!

After walking around town for a few hours I found something interesting. It was a building decoration which captured completely the message my feet were sending to me.

We ended the day with a stop at the Red Hook Brewery for a light lunch and then a tour of the facility.  It never hurts to learn a little more about beer making and those free beer samples didn’t hurt either. While I’m not much of a beer drinker it’s nice to have an occasional beer buzz that early in the day. We departed the Portsmouth area for a leisurely ride up the coast to one of out favorite places, Kennebunkport.  I’ll save that part of the trip for my next posting.

All in all we had a very nice day.
