The "other" Hamptons

Sunday I met Alex in rainy Revere (pronounced Reveah here in Boston) and we each drove up north to Hampton Beach in New Hampshire for a brief rest cure (Alex having received an invitation from a work colleague and friend to use her beach house.) The house was literally across the street from the beach - you could hear the waves roaring in (courtesy of Hurricane Kyle passing by.) Although the weather was somewhat inclement, I still managed a trek on the beach, which was beautiful. Many hardy souls were out with surfboards and wet suits (but not me!)

Monday I played hooky and accompanied Alex to Wentworth-by-the-Sea for some spa services, first stopping by at the Golden Egg for a delicious breakfast. While at Wentworth-by-the-Sea, I found another subject for my lamppost photograph collection.

Finally, the sun came out! We travelled over the bridge to Maine to indulge in some retail therapy in the Kittery outlets.
