New England Summer Thursday

I thought I'd start a small photo series for the summer.  I wanted to share some photos and facts about New Hampshire and New England.  These posts will be short, and I'll only be putting them up for about six weeks.  Enjoy!

  • New Hampshire has the shortest ocean coastline in the United States.  It's less than 20 miles long.
  • The Isles of Shoals are nine islands divided between the border of New Hampshire and Maine.
  • New Castle is the smallest town in New Hampshire, and it's the only one located entirely on islands.
  • New Hampshire has two light houses on its coast.
  • There are twelve beaches along the New Hampshire coast line. 
Do you have any more questions about New Hampshire?  If so, I'll see if I can answer them in this summer series.

Beautiful pictures! Does New Hampshire have any lighthouses on the coast? I'm working my way up the eastern coast year by year visiting lighthouses.

Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday. Love the pics. Great idea. I would love to travel to New Hampshire. I know it is simply awesome.

Oh, man, you are making me homesick for the Connecticut coast.

I remember spending countless hours on seaweed-covered rocks, catching fiddler crabs. Not a care in the world.

southernscraps, I mentioned in the post that there are 2 light houses on the coast. I should do a blog post about them sometime.

I just looked up, and Maine has 60 lighthouses! Maine has a much longer coastline, though.
