Rocks and Lighthouses

Fun-filled days of weekending found us on some beautiful adventures last Sunday. It started with a great lunch at BG’s Boathouse in Portsmouth. It’s the perfect super casual dining place for kids with an intimate deck and great fried seafood!

Griff’s favorite part is throwing rocks into the water after lunch.

After getting our fill of skipping rocks, we headed off to New Castle for a little playground fun and a nice walk along the rocks to check out the lighthouses at the mouth of Portsmouth Harbor.

The old Whaleback Lighthouse building  just offshore is looking pretty shabby these days. It has been abandoned for years.

The Whaleback Lighthouse is still in operation right off shore.

Below is the Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse. It is one of two working lighthouses for the mouth of Portsmouth Harbor. It actually dates back to 1771.

My beautiful family. I hope everyone has a wonderful week.

    Um, totally love Portsmouth. How did I forget you live in NH? I did my undergrad at Plymouth State. If you’re ever out at the Bedford Village Inn Tavern on Tuesday, say hello to my old guitar pal Jon. Sounds like a perfect date night for you!
    Looks like you had a great time at the coast. Wow. I miss it.
