New Hampshire's Atlantic Ocean coast line is miniscule - 18 miles only in length with Massachusetts to the south and Maine to the north..
I took a day trip there on Monday with Emily and granddaughter #2. Granddaughter #1 had gone with Matt to Annapolis, MD to a family reunion. Emily stayed home with #2 because she had a fever, not Covid. They tested her. By Monday fever was gone for 24 hours, hence our excursion.
Our first choice in beach was a town park in Portsmouth but sign at kiosk where we were to pay said no swimming because of fecal matter contamination. So we traveled south to Wallis Sands State Park instead.
Emily went in with her.
Me? I got my feet wet. Water much too cold plus wind was blowing off the water which made it cooler.
It was a two hour trip each way. Coming home we stopped at Wendy's for dinner. A nice day and out of the ordinary routine.
