Strawbery Banke


We are in Portsmouth, NH, today. We arrived before lunch and needed something to do until we could check into our hotel. We found a whole area near the waterfront called Strawbery Banke. It's a kind of museum that recreates over 400 years of life in this particular neighborhood of Portsmouth. It has restored buildings and gardens and real people engaged in different occupations that they would have done throughout the years. It's kind of a time capsule of life in this area across 4 centuries. A lot like Williamsburg, but on a smaller scale and spanning more time. Okay, stop yawning. We love stuff like this.

That is about the cutest thing ever. We are not yawning. Your description is short and to the point and we are glad you are having fun! Where are you thinking about going to in the fall?

I love this picture! Looks like Dad is getting pretty good with the camera too and the hat looks good on you Mom. Take it easy with the gardening though, remember, you're supposed to be on vacation!

Thanks,honey, I'm glad you like the hat; I bought in a little shop in Boothbay Harbor. Amy, we are thinking maybe a trip down to Ashville, NC, see the Blueridge Mts. again and visit the Biltmore Estate.
