STRAWBERRY BANKE

I had this past Friday off from work as I needed a long weekend to clear my head and rejuvenate. I could not have chosen a better day off. The sun was shining and I did not have to worry about a coat. I decided I wanted to drive out to Portsmouth, NH. Its probably (next to Keene and Peterborough) my favorite town in NH. It has adorable shops and restaurants and has ocean views. Nestled in the downtown is Strawberry Banke, an old Colonial Village. I've been a few times mainly on school field trips. They would have actors dressed in traditional garb, re-enacting village life. For some reason, maybe because it was off season (???) The place was deserted and anybody was free to roam the premises. I got lost for over an hour and a 1/2 exploring the grounds and taking far too many photos of the gorgeous houses painted in the prettiest assortment of pastel rainbow colors.  There was also my dream greenhouse. You guys, this place was a dream!!! I'm about to photo dump you guys, but this place was too amazing not for me to share everything! All photos taken with my brand new iPhone 4s!

  7. I am such a geek for history like this! I particularly like thinking about the social history side and how people lived. Looks like an interesting place, and a beautiful day.
