So as I have said, the weather this summer has been pretty tough on us hearty New Englanders. Because of that, when the sun does poke out its head, we immediately feel the need to take full advantage. On Saturday, it was in the high 70's, hazy, humid...another words, the perfect beach day in 2009. David and I headed to Hampton Beach, NH for the afternoon.
The thing is, at the beach the sea wind made it more like high sixties. Also, Hampton was experiencing astronomical high tides, which means that 95% of the beach was covered with water.
Did that stop New Hampshirites from flocking to the beach for some fun and frolic ?
No way ! We just made the best of that day !
The Queen & King did a little wind blown photo shoot.
The Rockfairy gathered some wares.
And she found a few new treasures to add to her own personal collection.
We witness sweet creations by some ....
and the destructive tendencies of others.
I know boys will be boys,
but what I didn't like so much was the dad who was pointing out all the rock people on the beach for his kid to knock down...
Still, after a few minutes in that beautiful wind, breathing in that amazing salty air, with the waves crashing on the rocks, and spending some time hanging out with your very best friend, you can just feel the worries sailing away...
we did. ;)
David is on vacation this week. We were supposed to head up to the cottage in Mont Tremblant but the weather forecast calls for rain and cool temps all week up there. We made a change of plans and decided to make it a New Hampshire vacation. Tuesdays weather here calls for high 80's and sun, so tomorrow we are headed to Mount Washington and Wednesday, we will explore some waterfalls and other treasures in the White Mountains. We found a dog-friendly hotel in North Conway, so Chica will make the trip with us ! So fun ! Free wireless in the hotel too, so I will try and post tomorrow night after our Mount Washington adventures.
Have a great Monday, creative Ones !
