I had not heard of this House (though I am sure I have been by it) which is now the museum of ‘Portsmouth Men, Women and Children‘ (where their stories live).

Starting this Summer the ‘Granite State Ambassadors‘ (GSAs), of whom I am a ‘Lifetime Member‘, are going to be helping out at this House/Museum. They are having two orientation sessions for the GSAs this coming week. I am going to go check it out. I like old houses like this — being mainly familiar with the historic properties on ‘Strawbery Banke‘ in Portsmouth. I am sure my Fuji X-E2s will go with me. So I will try to share some thoughts and pictures with you.

Deanna, a lobsterman’s daughter, grew up oceanside, right by the water. She likes going to the ocean. Going to a beach, ideally Hampton Beach, was what she wanted to do for Mother’s Day 2015. [In 2014 we went to Strawbery Banke, Portsmouth — which is kind of adjacent to the water.]

May 10, 2015, Mother’s Day U.S.A., was THE perfect beach day in New Hampshire. Hot, sunny and festive. The temperature was in the mid-80s and the sun was hammering down. The sand was burning hot. The sea, by marked contrast, was icy cold. It was packed, BUT it was fun. Teischan and I went in the water. Breaking waves is the pictorial imagery for the topic I use in my “Orgasms: 101 Facts & Triviabook. So I took this opportunity to take some pictures.

It was fun. Glad we went. I would not wish disability of anyone but if you are disabled, as Deanna is, the tags, permits and passes do come in handy. I knew parking would be hard BUT with Deanna’s disable ‘hanger’ we got a prime spot right on the beach, next door to the main bathrooms. Does not get better. Cost me $6. Can’t beat that. Yes, that is I in the water.

Happy Mother’s Day 2015.
