A Peek at the Week: June 22 - 28

I can't believe it's STILL raining. If not for the brief glimpses of sun, I might not believe the sun exists anymore! I hope everyone got out last Saturday and got every ounce of sunlight they could!

Here's a peek at this week:

June 21 - At 2:00 p.m., at the Portsmouth Lighthouse, an observance of the sixth annual New Hampshire Lighthouse Week will be held. The event is open to the public and free lighthouse tours will follow until 4 p.m.

Speakers at the event will include NH Lighthouse Week Director Joel Shelburne, American Lighthouse Foundation Executive Director Bob Trapani, Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse Operations Manager Jeremy D’Entremont, lighthouse historian William O. Thomson, and more. Local dignitaries will be on hand for presentations.

Looking forward to Barrington Farm Day (hopefully it won't rain!!). When we've gone previous years, my favorite to see has always been the alpaca farm!
