One of my favorite friends doubled as a fabulous tour guide when she took me to Portsmouth, NH recently. We meandered in and out of shops, ate fish-n-chips on the waterfront and just enjoyed catching up after not seeing each other for quite a while. She did such a fine job showing me around that I promoted myself to tour guide and took two more of my favorite friends (my girls!) on Monday to celebrate the very last day before Strike went back to school. I knew they'd enjoy it. Just posting some pics here:
We happened upon this scene just in the nick of time to see the bridge lowered after the tugboat above passed thru'...
So cool to watch!

Didn't quite capture the whole painting but -
I love how the newspaper is real/"decoupaged"

a quaint little tucked away corner of the world
By the time we left, this hole in the wall
(seriously - it's not much more than that...barely room to stand as you wait for your order)
had become my very favorite restaurant. I found their menu online (click the pic to link to it) and have added a whole food juicer similar to the one below (that thing is a BEAST!!) to my wish list in hopes of attempting to re-create, at least to some degree, some of their fantastic food and drinks in our own kitchen. I did just get a Kitchen Aid blender and I have never in my life owned such a good quality blender - so first I'm gonna give that a try.
this (they call it the "Japanese") tasted every bit as good as it looks!

Before we knew it ...
it was time to go.
