American Locations 17 – Hampton Beach, New Hampshire

This trip goes from Cincinnati, Ohio, to the Boston area, then up the New England coast all the way into Canada, then back through the Adirondacks to the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York.

We drove north on Hwy. 1 out of Massachusetts into New Hampshire. We took Hwy. 101 to Hampton Beach, where we found a good seafood restaurant and gorged on fried cod, clams, and shrimp, with fries, slaw, and hush puppies on the side. A feast. We then drove south on 1A and secured a site at Hampton Beach State Park.

The next morning we drove back north up 1A to Hampton Beach.

Where we found this cool statue.

I don’t know if there was a sand volleyball tourney going on, or if the game is always this popular here.

I do know there was a sand sculpture competition taking place.

It was free admittance, and not too crowded.

There were a lot of entries to admire. There were some corporate sponsors.

But most of them were more inventive.

Some were making a statement, although it could be difficult understanding what it was saying. This one I believe was commenting on all the trash washing up on the shore.

Whoever would have thought sand could be erotic?

The night before a storm had hit, and rain had damaged some of them. Some artists were still repairing the damage while we were there.

Although on this one the damage actually works. It looks like the characters imprisoned in the cube are smashing their way out.

After relaxing on the beach for a while, and eating more good seafood on the boardwalk, we continued north in our motor home along the coast on 1A.
