Today, the weather turned unseasonably warm along most of the east coast, and New Hampshire was no exception. The high was 79 degrees – even warmer than at our home on the VA eastern shore.
After a morning in Portsmouth, we followed Route 1A, which is an alternate to Route 1 and runs along the beach areas. New Hampshire lays claim to 18 miles of coastline, compared to 35 miles of Virginia Beach coastline and 130 miles in our home state of NJ.
Wallis Sands State Beach, about 15 minutes south of Portsmouth, is a beautiful, sandy curving beach that is on Route 1A. It has a large parking lot, showers and restrooms, and an admission charge in summer months. We saw many sailboats . . .Hampton Beach, the most popular beach in the region is also off Route 1A in Hampton. It has attracted thousands of beach goers since the turn of the century. The beach is wide with bath house and lifeguards in season.
Lots of folks were taking in the warm temps, which are expected to continue through the weekend and into early next week.
This little guy was enjoying the beach . . .
Today, was a beautiful day with possibly even warmer temps on Sunday.
Whatever happened to fall?
There hasn’t been any fall leaf colors to post about – yet. Maybe next week, hopefully.
