Hot & Humid!
Jeremy and I had a great day of frittering yesterday. It was a first for us – a tri-state fritter. First we went to Portsmouth, NH.
Portsmouth is a lovely little town on the coast on New Hampshire. It has cute cobblestone streets, a working harbor, lots of red brick, a couple of drawbridges, and (most important for frittering) a lot of little shops, cafès and restaurants.
The weather was perfect for frittering – sunny and hot but not humid or too hot. We wandered through the whole downtown, saw a drawbridge go up and down, shopped, and ate a yummy lunch. We ate at the Portsmouth Brewery and it was very tasty. Jeremy had Black Bean Dip and I had a fancy salad. After lunch I got ice cream – yummm. As we were walking around we noticed that the lilacs were still in bloom – lovely.
We also did some shopping. Jeremy got some things to do crafty projects: shells for decorating flower pots and necklace-making materials. I got some presents for Gist and some lovely yarn.
The picture doesn't really do it justice. It is han-painted sock yarn made by Seacoast Handpainted Yarns. It is very soft and washable and I love the colors. I can't wait to ball it up and bust out my needles!
Then we headed up to Portland, ME. Portland is also a charming little seaside city with a lot of red brick, cobblestone streets, a colonial feel, and lots of fritter-worthy establishments.
We walked around Portland and drank some iced tea and basically just talked and frittered the rest of the day away. It was quite lovely.
