The Secret and I Have an Historical Adventure

Remember that secret? Well, it's motivating me to go on some historical adventures. For the next three weeks my secret and I will be exploring local Portsmouth, New Hampshire historical sites. We will start with our city's gateway to history and culture; the Discover Portsmouth Center. This center was created by the Portsmouth Historical Society and I am excited to see what they have to offer to visitors.

Yesterday, we traveled up to York Wild Animal Kingdom to see our first rodeo at the Extreme Country Stampede Tour.

I know it's pretty common in other parts of the country, but around here we just aren't used to seeing cowboys and bulls do this:

 or stunt motorcycle riders do this:

We listened to some great country music from Jessie Brown and Greg Burroughs.

All in all, it was a good old real American experience complete with the Pledge of Allegiance from this cutie pie

and a National Anthem ride from her big sister:

Check back tomorrow for details about the Discover Portsmouth Center and maybe you will see a picture of me in my new pink cowgirl hat.

Happy Monday!

Scrappy Gen
Let's Remember!


  1. What fun, and the weather was perfect. We went to Maine on Saturday. Enjoy your upcoming adventures.

  2. The Portsmouth Discovery Center is great, but badly in need of funding. When you are there, see what's up with their status, because I was afraid it was going to close. We used the Center a few times last summer, to view an art exhibit, to get information, and as a potty stop!

  3. Yes, it was a beautiful day in Portsmouth today. PDC is faced with roof repair and relies on visitors and donations. Friendly and helpful staff. Details to follow.


Please leave your comments, ideas and suggestions. Your thoughts are important to me.
