A stroll in Portsmouth NH.

On the streets of Portsmouth:  the Hawk, Cici, Mr. T, and Nini.

We took a stroll through Portsmouth NH with four kids,
three adults,
two toy cars,
and a binkie. 

Cool clock!
We looked around at all the sights, took in the sunny day,
and enjoyed a few peaks to window shop.

Love the Turqoise and growing ivy.
We admired the colors and beautiful buildings,
including this painted turquoise bakery.

Portsmouth side alley.

We walked through alleys and brick streets
looking in windows
and wishing for ice cream.

Mr. T grooving to a Hurdy Gurdy

And then, Mr. T and all the kidlets
wanted to sit and enjoy
something I had never heard
or seen before...

Enjoying the sounds of a Hurdy Gurdy.
...A man, as cozy as could be, took up a nice little section
of a Portsmouth Street and played sweet little tunes on the Hurdy Gurdy. 
If you don't know what a Hurdy Gurdy is or want to know
all the facts check out this sweet little page that explains it all here.

This was our fun little stroll through
the streets of Portsmouth NH! 
Thanks for coming along :)

Have you been to Portsmouth?
Favorite thing?
Have you heard the sounds of a Hurdy Gurdy?
Or, never heard of it like me?!

I have never even heard of a hurdy gurdy.

Looks like a fun trip. I really would love to go to the east coast and see it all. It always looks so beautiful.
