Every year Ed decides  that we should do something with the family that is cultural during the holiday season.  This year he thought we might like to do a candlelight stroll of Strawbery Banke, which is a museum of historical houses that  are adorned in holiday finery to reflect their historic period.  Strawbery Banke is located on the seacost in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and has about fifteen houses to look through.  
 On most evenings during the holiday season, this is a wonderful way to celebrate with family.  A leisure stroll through out the small community of years gone by, all lighted by candles.. There is a cider barn with hot apple cider and a sing along, a bonfire, horsedrawn carriage rides... Saturday night, there was a little bit of a hitch...there were torrential downpours..but did that stop my family?  Heck no...umbrellas in hand with my husband assuring us that the rain would stop...we went on Our candlelight stroll( the candles lasted about fifteen minutes), mud and puddles everywhere...the houses were indeed beautiful inside and out..
Our group was Ed and myself, Kara, John and his girlfriend, Becky.  The kids were great sports..the weather horrific..  By the end of our adventure we were looking like drowned rats...We went to the ciderbarn, and even I had hot piping cider... My woolen coat was soaked through..there wasn't a dry one among us...we threw in the umbrella's about two hours into the ordeal and decided to leave and go to dinner.  We arrived at the restaurant, looking rather like wet noodles...but were our spirits dampened?  Decide for your self...below a pic taken by the waiter,as we were settling in for dinner..
It really is all about time spent with family, don't you think?
