fried clam strips + strolls on the beach
on Monday afternoon, my family packed up our car and headed down to Hampton Beach, New Hampshire to spend a little time with my cousins and aunt and uncle on their family vacation. they’d rented a condo that was very conveniently located to the beach, boardwalk, and plenty of tasty places to get delicious fresh seafood. we don’t get to see each other very often, so it was a wonderful time to share some stories, soak up some sun, and stuff our bellies with fried clam strips. I would describe Hampton Beach as the Jersey Shore of New England, and while it didn’t have the deserted beaches and LL Bean clad visitors that I’m used to, it was a lot of fun.
