What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Granite State of Mind

Sleeping in Portsmouth tonight. Spent the day at the Norman Rockwell Museum and Studio, which was pretty good. They have a show going on by another illustrator, but there were plenty of Rockwell's to be had. Did you know he wrte and illustrated a children's book? I didn't, and after working through some of the illustrations telling the tale, it's not surprising that we haven't heard of it (somewhat depressing tale). Then drove across MA and got stuck in traffic of everybody heading back to Boston for their Monday. We got into our hotel here and then went down to Hampton Beach to grab dinner and look at the ocean. The ocean was there (we stayed in the rocky beach area). And then the very nice people at Peteys let us in close to their closing time, which was very nice of them (and was reflected in the tip). Also, excellent lobster bisque. Yummy. So tomorrow off to see the Albacore and Strawberry Banke. Still having fun if a little bit bug bitten.
