Monday morning we left my friend Heather’s house and headed up the coast to Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Which pretty much has the coolest historic downtown on the planet.
Settled in 1623 Portsmouth has an incredible amount of character. The sidewalks are lined with bricks, the streets are all pretty uneven and the old buildings are AMAZING. Seriously, everywhere you look is a little history lesson in the making.
I will never get tired of seeing old brick buildings trimmed in white or black.
Or snow covered paths. 😉
After a few hours in Portsmouth we headed north to Portland, Maine.
New favorite thing: Flatbread with corned beef, carrots, potatoes and cabbage with mustard. A combination I would have never come up with on my own BUT HOLY COW MAN….it was so good!
Oh. And just in case you didn’t know… Maine has a $0.05 redemption value on cans and bottles. So of course The Girl is always on the lookout when she walks around town. 😉
But the best deal/find of the day? A free wooden chair from a local thrift store. Apparently they had too many and needed to get rid of a few. 🙂
Treasures… they’re around every corner. You just have to look for them.
Peace Out Girl Scouts… I’ll check in tomorrow.
