New Hampshire and the Friendly Toast

New Hampshire! We spent a night in Concord, but then headed out towards Manchester and  Portsmouth for some riding!

First was Manchester.  Ready for riding!

There was a short bike trail that we found.

It was only a few miles long, but very pretty.  Crossing the Merrimack:

This was a nice bridge to cross over.  No cars!

Then we moved on to  Portsmouth to spend the night.  We biked to breakfast at Friendly Toast. This is a quirky little place with some good food!

Lots of memorabilia.

John and I split a fruit cup.

Yes, this was the cup!!! I can’t imagine what the bowl size is!

And we split an order of Hansel and Gretel  gingerbread waffles.

OMG – these were so good!  They had a pomegranate molasses drizzle on them.

Then it was time for some riding.  It was a bit  chilly this day.  Had to layer up.

I crush the tiny lighthouse with my bare hands:

This was a beautiful ride.  We followed along the water when we could.  Check out this cool sculpture.  When you stand just right:

I wonder if the people who live here take this for granted.  I suppose we all take where we live for granted after a while.

We had our first lobster roll in Portsmouth as well.

We hadn’t tried another one yet, so I would agree that this is the best so far!

We shared one because it was so big!  Lots of good lobster meat and very little mayo on a toasted bun.  Simple and perfect.

 

I don’t want to overload you with pictures, so I will stop there.

Okay, one more from Hampton Beach!

    I love travel blogs! And exploring on a bike sounds so fun. I hope to do that someday. That waffle looks amazing. And the lobster roll sans mayo looks delish too!

    Please keep overloading! I love looking at the pics especially since I live in Europe, I love seeing other places and this one is beautiful.

    And I think we take where we live for granted too after a while. For example I sometimes post a pic that doesn’t look special to me but the reactions from others say something different. They look with different eyes than I do.

    Have more fun and please make more pictures, love it.

    Lori,

    I am enjoying your site so much. Love the visual travel log and the sculpture, great shot of that. Glad you and hubby are having a good time.

    My husband and I moved to DC a few years ago and we’ve yet to trip above NY. Seems like such a shame seeing your gorgeous photos! I’m going to have to add New Hampshire to the never-ending list of places we need to visit 🙂
