Portsmouth, NH Adventures!

Hi Everyone (my whole 11 readers out there), I know, I’ve been a little lax on the posts lately but I’ve been a busy, busy little bee. You’ll see a ton of updates in the next few days…Ok, who am I kidding…tonight. Ha! I’ve been squirreling away the photo’s and posts, so get ready for a fun ride!

A few weeks ago, (Hey, I said I was behind!), I went to Portsmouth, NH to visit a dear old friend. It’s a long story, and I won’t bore you with the details, but she was my tutor in first grade, and if it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t be able to pronounce my vowels or identify a combined word (Example: doghouse. See, still got it.). Fast forward, 25 years, and after a quick Facebook search (thank you, Zuckerberg, I found my dear old friend and re-connected.) We decided to meet in Portsmouth, NH, which is a little over an hour away, for all you local Bostonians.

Portsmouth is a quaint seaside New England town, great for lazy Sundays (or Saturdays in our case) that boasts tons of cute little shops, concerts in the summer, and was once an Air Force Base (there is even a submarine you can tour). For more of the history on Portsmouth, go here. We went to a cute little bakery called Popovers on the Square for lunch. Each meal comes with mini or full sized popovers. What is a popover, you ask? (It’s OK, I had never heard of one either.) A popover is a light and airy baked treat (picture a cross between a croissant and a muffin). READ: Yummy.

We didn’t get to walk around too much as we had other plans (hel-lo, Kittery Outlets in Maine!) but it was a nice and relaxing afternoon, regardless. I would love to check it out when the weather is warmer.

So, dear reader, have you been to Portsmouth before? If so, what hotspots should I check out?
