A Walk in the Snow

This was a snow storm I really enjoyed...closed the store very early, went home and Adele and I took Maggie, all decked in her "flower-power" attire on a lovely walk around Strawberry Banke & Pierce Island. George Washington had a fort build there (he spent a bit of time here) and it is a backyard treasure. Enjoy the pic's from my neighborhood in Portsmouth, NH.


She loves bounding in the snow - big time!




A picture of my neighbor's house on the point.


A sea captain house that house been turned into a local museum. In the summer we have antique furniture exhibitions here. Detail like this rarely exist on homes today. Sad.


The old Governor's house. Just beautiful.


Part of the local Lobster fleet.



Another 200+ year old sea captain house on the water.



This house is from "The Hill" - a cluster of houses that range from the mid 1700's to the 1850's.





Hey, where's the car?

I love Portsmouth! Those old Federal buildings are just fantastic. I lived in Newburyport for a couple of years in a 200 yr. old Federal building - I miss the house and the town. And being able to run up to Portsmouth easily!

Thanks Lana & Mimi...a fresh snow fall is just fun, it's later when it loses the charm!

I love Newburyport Linda. And the Federal there are fabulous - so much better than Portsmouth, but then we weren't a shipping capital like it was down there.
