What a beautiful little park nestled on the island of New Castle. I true treasure that I never knew about! You do have to pay to park, but I discovered that if you smile and tell the attendant that you didn't bring any cash, he will let you in for free ;) It probably helped that we didn't show up until after 4 p.m. too. I brought my DSLR but forgot to bring my memory card. I was bummed, because the place is gorgeous and there were so many wonderful photo opportunities. I snapped a couple photos of the kids with my camera phone, but I will definitely go back at sunrise or sunset just to take some photos. I will even pay to park!!
We stopped at Philbrick's Fresh Market in Portsmouth for some picnic munchies. The place is pretty great. Reminds me a lot of the Concord Cooperative Market, but bigger and a little less expensive. The kids picked out a "treat" and we grabbed a bunch of healthy snacks and we were on our way to the makings of a wonderful picnic. And it was... wonderful!
