Jess and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary on 10/31….yes, Halloween…and no we did not dress up…at our wedding or at Halloween! This weekend I organized an overnighter to Portsmouth NH. Jess and I really like this part of NH and Portsmouth is such a fun city.
One good thing that comes with maturity…yes, I’m admitting publicly that I’m getting older…is the ability to stay and more importantly pay for nice hotels. This time it was the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel.
View from our room. We could see the water but not the giant sandbag! The staff were friendly and the hotel was very nice. Recommend if you have a few extra shekels to spare. Bonus is you can walk to downtown which is full of great stores and restaurants.
Saturday night was a bit of a blur as we were both tired and just wanted to chill. Dinner was at the Portsmouth Gas Light. Food was great and the porter I had did the trick quite nicely.
Sunday am was fun as we got an extra hour of sleep. Bonus was no upstairs neighbors walking about like elephants or dog or kids! As usual no visit to Portsmouth is complete without breakfast at the original Friendly Toast and the whole reason for the following image puzzle I gave to Jess.
Think about it for a few. Answer below.
Liquid gold in a mug….fine, black coffee will have to do.
The Friendly Toast is full of really fun items and people.
We waited for over an hour to get a table. Actually, high top this visit. Jess was very excited when the food showed up. As usual it was all wonderful.
If all bathrooms had one of these signs we’d all be happy. Even alien who apparently lay around.
Decisions decisions…in all fairness we were starving and 8 hours later I still have not eaten anything.
Now thats a good looking flag!
Stone carvings on the main drag. We sure don’t design like they used to design.
Its that good looking flag again in Market Square.
All in all it was a great mini get-a-way. Love you Jess…looking forward to the next 19 and beyond.
Image puzzle answer: We will be having pancakes at the original Friendly Toast on Sunday morning. So pack your bags and we’ll get out of here. Food in fridge, kids will be okay.
