I live about an hour south of Portsmouth, N.H. My youngest son went to college in the area and stayed there after he graduated. Who could blame him for wanting to stay, it's gorgeous place to be.
Speaking of gorgeous, Saturday was one of those days. I was driving up to visit him and we decided to go for the day. The parking garage is very accessible to walking around and there are plenty of little, quaint shops, excellent restaurants and lovely sights to see.
A favorite spot to have lunch in the summer is The Oar House.
They have an outdoor deck and it's a lovely spot to have a bite to eat. I got their lobster roll and it was perfect. Wouldn't you agree?
If you are in the area of Southern N.H., make sure you visit the coast. It's only 12 miles long, but each town is nicer and the other. However, I am partial to Portsmouth. It's such a lovely old New England town, with tons of charm.
Here's Market Square.
This is a picture on their website that I didn't take. It shows the tugboats at sunset on the water.
Truly gorgeous, don't you think?
