Day 6, 29 Sep 08, Portsmouth NH to York ME

What a great day! In more ways than one. First we woke up this morning to sunshine! It was so nice. Even though we are at our friends Kate and Steve's in Portsmouth, NH, we opted to sleep in the motorhome in front of their house. That way we were not in their way getting ready for work, plus we have everything we need right here without toting stuff into the house.

After we got up and around, we went to Kittery, ME (about 3 miles from their house) and had breakfast at Dunkin Donuts. Then we went to a couple of the outlets in Kittery to get some stuff we needed. Then we went to York, ME where we lived in 1981 for a year. We went by our old house and then went to the ocean about a mile from that house. Then on up to Nubble Light in York. We spent some time there before going on up to York Beach to Short Sands beach.

This was the other great part of the day. Barbara took Blackie and headed out into the ocean and got into water up to her knees. The waves today were about as big as we've seen up here. Anyhow, Barbara had more fun than she's had in ages. She commented several times that all the pain she went through with the two knee replacements was worth it. Last year she could not have taken that at all. I think Blackie had as much fun as Barbara did today.

After a couple of hours up there we headed back toward Portsmouth to Steve and Kate's via Rt 103 which took us home along the ocean.

After we arrived at their place, Kate fixed an oustanding dinner for us which included sauteed scallops and baked haddock with stuffing on top along with a baked potato and salad. What a great meal she fixed.

After a great evening we retired to the motorhome and called it a day.

Oh, before I forget, Barbara uploaded pictures for Days 1, 2 and 3. To see them, go to the respective days and at the end of that days' blog you will see the word Pictures. Click on that and it will take you to the pictures for that day.

The temps today were in the low 70's and sunny this morning but cloudy this afternoon. It's supposed to be about the same here tomorrow.
