Mr. Bill and I talked about going to the beach; unfortunately, the weather report didn't look great for the beach. Mr. Bill decided we would go for a day trip and it would be a surprise to me. He said it wasn't very far away and I had never been there before. Oh...K...
We headed South on the Turnpike, through the rotary in Portsmouth and ended up at Odiorne State Park in Rye, NH. It covers 331.5 acres and houses the remnants of an old fort. We took a nice walk along the coast
|View of Isles of Shoals in the distance from the coastal path|
|One of the tide pools|
|The path to the monument, lined with stone walls.|
We discovered later, after looking at a map, that we should have continued on the path and we would have come to a point of land within the park. Instead, we went through the bunker, and returned to the parking area. We came to a nice view of the salt marsh across the road.
We ate our lunch on one of the benches overlooking the ocean and the park across the river.
Then we took some self portraits...it's harder than you think.
|"Oop's, I think I moved too soon."|
|Something's not quite right...|
Thanks for stopping by...
