Beautiful Gumby. I love New Hampshire and have wonderful memories of when DH and I visited. It was years ago and, sadly, don't have electronic versions of our pics. We were very young when we went there.

That's what I was thinking Khan, but it seems too close to shore. Could it be one of Nord's old surfboards?

Yes, it was a spy-hopping whale. That's his nose. Either a California Grey or a Humpback. It gets deep very close to the shore, and they feed there.

The streets are full of lovely old cafes and restaurants and they have an excellent bus service that keeps the town center traffic to a minimum (the streets are very narrow). It also has a castle overlooking the other bay and it is quite a strenuous climb up the cliffs to the castle and/or to the big old Victorian style houses.
