We had some time to kill earlier today so decided to check out downtown Exeter and the river that runs behind it, a piece of which is photographed here. We rode by Phillips Exeter Academy, which looks like a college campus, and went in a few cute stores. After I said, "Hi" to one shop owner, he asked, "Do I detect an accent?" Southern girls must be a rarity around here.It was a nice day with a soft blue sky and we drove to Hampton Beach, only about fifteen minutes away. When I saw the sign for Lobster Rolls in a local restaurant, I knew that would be lunch. It turned out to be quite delicious, almost as good as the perfectly prepared fish and chips Raymond ordered.
