My friend Caitlin had an idea one day that in a way, inspired the start of this blog. Every once in a while, she thought we should get all of our friends together, when we all need to get away, and visit a new city we have never been (at least some of us) for a weekend. And thus was born our regular girls weekend trips. We have only done it once so far, and the first trip was to Providence, RI. Though I have been to Providence many times (visiting a friend at PC in college, etc.), I can say that the experience was new for me.
When I googled “Portsmouth” to find a cool place to go, I came across an online guide to Portsmouth, NH & the seacoast. On the front page is the winner of a local photo contest…
“Hampton Beach Scene” by Ed Bolton, an entry in the Winter 2008 Photo Contest. The winner, as judged by Seacoast photographer Gene Paltrineri, will receive a $100 gift certificate good for fine dining at Portsmouth’s elegant Black Trumpet Bistro.
This photo reminded me of the snow storm expected to fall upon our set-in-stone plans, so we will have to get creative.
