And as usual, I wanted to go to the beach to celebrate. I had heard about a place in North Hampton called Fuller Gardens, and since it was so close to the ocean, we figured that would be a good choice. When we got there, we were told that the roses were not in bloom yet, and since the roses are the main attraction, they would let us in for half-price.
They had some beautiful statuary.
And a very lovely Japanese Garden with a Koi Pond
All this will be roses in another two or three weeks
The Azalea and Rhododendron were blooming
The ocean is a short walk away
So we decided to go. We'd driven along route 1A many times, and kind of noticed people walking, but never really realized that there was a sidewalk for miles along the ocean. So we walked...........
And did a little resting on the stone wall
Then we headed to North Beach in Hampton and did some more walking along the beach. The tide was low, but the sand was still wet, and cold enough to make our feet ache.
And we finished off our day at my favorite seafood place, Brown's. When we got home, we had the cake Hubby had made me.....strawberry with real strawberries in the filling.
The perfect birthday.
