Saturday morning Ann and I did a second showing with some buyers and afterward decided to drive around and enjoy the beautiful fall day and weather. Bright blue skies, gorgeous foliage, and some time to enjoy it.

This is a neat little park along the Lamprey River in Newmarket, New Hampshire. The buildings in the background are old mills that have been converted to condos.
The ‘waterbirds’ in the photo above are actually metal silhouette cutouts.
You might be happy to know that Jim’s Barber Shop in Exeter, NH is now open Mondays. Interesting to see the old buildings in Exeter occupied by modern businesses; you might recognize the Verizon logo on the building to the right.
Stopped by the Exeter train depot to watch the afternoon Amtrak train pick up some passengers.
By early afternoon it was getting to be lunchtime so we stopped by Steve’s Diner on Portsmouth Avenue in Exeter for a nice lunch. We’ve been here a couple of times before and the food has been very good all times.
Sig Sauer, the firearms manufacturer has a facility in nearby Epping, NH including a Pro shop, R & D lab, and a range where they conduct classes. Not a good place to go wandering through the woods but not to worry, it’s thoroughly fenced and signed.
Continuing our Saturday wanderings we swung over along Ocean Boulevard and Rye Beach and drove through Rye Harbor. A lot of the boats in this harbor are working lobster boats.
It’s low tide in this photo. When the tide is in all the rocks in the foreground are under water.
The wooden crates in the photos are old lobster traps; most all the newer ones are made of wire mesh. Each lobsterman has his own distinctively colored buoys so they can tell them apart out in the open water. You find the buoys washed up on the beach sometimes after a storm. Lots of people buy them and the nautical stuff to use as decor. This is the parking lot at Ray’s Seafood Restaurant in Rye. We’ve eaten there and it’s great.
