Ahhhhhh.... to be near the sea. The weather couldn't have been better. Today I explored the NH seacoast. Coming off of route 101 into Hampton we drove north via route 1A, through Rye and finally to Portsmouth. I love that route; on our right was the glimmering sea and on our left the picturesque villas, the homes of those who apparently have enough income to support them! Each home unique with its own special character. I couldn't photograph the homes, but I've included snaps of the beautiful sea and tried to capture a tiny bit of its character and beauty.
