Vacation Day 1 - Wells, Maine and Portsmouth, New Hampshire

We started our trip in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Brett and Adrienne came and met us. It was rainy and cold but that didn't stop us. We saw some houses from the 1600's, ran on the rocks on the beach of a lighthouse and took a path out in the middle of a lake to a small protected island.
Portsmouth in the rain. The steeple in the distance is from a church built in the 1600s.

This is a path we saw while driving back to New Hampshire. We stopped and let the kids run to the small island. I love Olivia's face in the group shot. Every picture we took of her had this expression.

This lighthouse is totally surrounded by water. There is a small basket think that runs along a pulley system to get to the island. It looked terrifying. The waves were really strong and the kids loved to watch the water crash on the rocks. Grant swears he saw a sea lion pop up to watch the kids.
