4-years ago, New Year’s Eve 2014 we did “First Night” in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

We actually volunteered for “Pro Portsmouth” and I was in charge of the midnight shift at North Church when we rang in the New Years. That was a blast.

Last night was too cold for anything! For the first time in 10-years we did NOT venture went.

But, on New Year’s Day we did go to Portsmouth and then Kittery, Maine.

Had to stop by and take these pictures of the 2018 ice sculptures.

Portsmouth, NH Also Has A ‘First Night’ With Ice Sculpture …

We did ‘First Night‘, as planned, in Wolfeboro, as we had also done the previous year. And as is also our wont, we went to Portsmouth on New Year’s Day. This year it was our 1oth Wedding Anniversary. We didn’t get to Portsmouth till ‘late’; 4.30pm. We had dinner, per Deanna’s wish, at the ‘Gas Light Grill‘. It was OK. Half price Martinis — since it was Tuesday (a deal they have every Tuesday). That was good. Yes, we saw the broken ice sculpture. Not sure what the story is, whether it was an accident or vandalism.

The ever beautiful church behind the ice sculptures.
