I originally promised you New England scenery, didn't I?



So today's in-between-food-posts post will be about a small part of New Hampshire's seacoast. I don't even know what this beach is called, or if it even has a name. It's a tiny little cove that my son started calling Clam Beach when he was three, and the name stuck.

It's a little harbor where small boats are docked, and some larger fishing boats head out of the area, as well.
It's divided into two sections--one for the boats and one that is just water. We like it because it's easy to see the kids at all times--it doesn't get busy, and the kids can play in the water and find little crabs and snails for their buckets.

Here are some photos from two summers ago, in 2006...

See the rocks in the first photo? Everything to the left of those is boats and open sea.




Everything to the right of these rocks is the little beach and cove...

That's a restaurant in the distance.


A boy dreaming of adventures on the sea, maybe?
(My youngest, when he was three.)


So there you go. A post about something other than food. We love living here in New England and wouldn't trade it for the world! Visiting other places is fun, but it's always good to come home.

:) Stay tuned for a delicious post...

Great pics, Elle!

April in CT said...

That picture of your son is just incredibly adorable!

I feel so lucky to live here now. I miss my family like crazy though and would give anything to transport them all up here with us!

Elle said...

Thank you, Ben! It's not tropical here, but it'll do just fine for me, hehe. I hope that one day you do get to your tropical paradise. :)

April, thank you! I wish you could transport them here, too! Missing your family is just no fun.

New England is gorgeous - and you just reminded me of that (not that I ever forgot, but it's nice to be reminded through personal photographs).

Deborah said...

What a gorgeous place! I'm always jealous of people who live by the ocean. Utah is extremely beautiful, but there is just something about the ocean that gets me every time...

JennDZ - The Leftover Queen said...

Just beautiful, Elle! You really have me missing New England now! Your son is so cute!

Shaye said...

Amazing pictures Elle! If I promise not to bring the heat with me again, can I come back up for a visit! ;)

Seriously though, I'm all inspired.
I think I'm going to take some pictures of my area--so people can see what my little neck-of-the-woods looks like, too!

noble pig said...

Oh it's just gorgeous. New England is just such a beautiful place. You are so lucky to live there!

HoneyB said...

Hi Elle, New England states are beautiful! We are in the adirondack/st. lawrence seaway area and that has a beauty of its own too! Grumpy and I were supposed to go to Maine next week after my son's wedding, but plans had to change unfortunately. HOWEVER we can't wait to get to travel the New England states and see the Atlantic Coast and eat LOBSTER! LOL

bunny said...

such beautiful pictures elle, it makes me want to be there! i love the ocean.

Tiffany said...

Simply beautiful, Elle! I have never been farther East then Colorado, so it's great to see pictures! I am laughing at Shaye's comment becasue if I took picures around here, it would be a sea of houses! LOL, gotta love the suburbs!

I'll have to post some pics of the mountains when we get out there :)

Laura @ Hungry and Frozen said...

Wow, you live in a gorgeous area :)

Mrs Erg├╝l said...

My husband is gonna love that place and me too!

recipes2share said...

This looks just perfect...living here in Paris is the only time we have been away from a coast & we so miss it....!

cookinpanda said...

Wow Elle. These photos are gorgeous. I'm so envious of anyone who lives in such a scenic (and calm place). You are truly lucky.

Erika said...

Elle, you so captured New England in these pics! In the dead of winter, I wish I was anywhere else, but spring, summer and fall, you can't beat being in New England!

Grace said...

that's just so darn pretty! i'm used to mountains, and mountains, and more mountains. not that i'm complaining, mind you, but i wouldn't mind seeing a bit more water from time to time. :)

kellypea said...

Love New England -- Boston, Cape Cod...but never have been to NH. I know I'd love it! I've always wanted to visit in the fall. Great photos...thanks for giving us a peek!

farida said...

Great photos, Elle! What a beautiful place! I have never been to that part of the US. Really would love to.

Kevin said...

Nice photos.

Trisha said...

Ah, what I wouldn't give... Lovely photos of a lovely place. And so much more lovely in person, I'm sure (darn it all!).

taste memory said...

thanks for sharing your paradise! reminds me of Boothbay ~ went to a wedding there years back. Had the best crab cakes EVER at this wedding and none has compared ever since. Enjoy your summer!

Cathy said...

Even though I am near the ocean there is something magical about the East Coast. What beautiful pictures - The East coast has such charm and character. My favorite place was Mystic Conn. Thanks for sharing these

Cheers

Elle said...

Thank you, everyone! I wish we lived right there, but we're about 30 minutes from the coast. That doesn't stop us from going there. A lot, hehe.

Linda, I love love love Newburyport! my husband and I would love to be in that area.

Katie's blog said...

What beautiful scenery you get to look at. Living by the ocean must be wonderful. I have never had the opportunity. Thanks for sharing.
