Silly REALTORS Chase the Snow Moon

Snow Moon RisingSilly REALTORS Chase the Snow Moon

Jay and I just love exploring our coastline and we love chasing the full moon risings and watching the sun set with all it’s magnificent dramatic colors and back splashes.  Last night we took advantage of the full Snow Moon rising and clear skies to meet at the beach after I got off from work and enjoy the show.  Watch the video below and you will see why I say ” Silly REALTORS Chase the Snow Moon “….  silly we are!

Afterwards the wonderful show that nature put on we drove to Seabrook NH and had dinner at the Outback restaurant. The food was good and service very nice and the menu works well with a low carb lifestyle.  Our NH Seacoast is extra special and if you lived here you could enjoy it too.  Call us at 603-944-9172 to explore all your NH real estate options!

Rye Harbor State Park Captain John Smith Monument

Ca[t John Smith Rye Harbor State Park

Rye Harbor State Park Captain John Smith Monument

Jay and I love driving along our beautiful NH coast line and while we live fairly close to the coast, we camp at the beach when ever we can. Long weekends or short, during the week, holidays or when ever we can,  we camp in our motor home, working and commuting right from the beach.

A recent weekend in September with iffy weather made it perfect for driving and exploring.  We packed some water and snack and made many stops during our ride. One stop was at Ragged Head aka Rye Harbor State Park.  We had wanted to see the Rye Harbor State Park Captain John Smith Monument, which was erected in 2014.  The monument is amazing with inscriptions and a map he created of New England.  The state park itself is wonderful, we’ve stopped here many times and have seen a number of weddings, people having picnics and musicians sitting on the benches giving impromptu performances.  Rye Harbor

On this chilly day there was only one other person visiting the park.  We walked all around and took pictures and videos.  We continued our way along the coast and went through Portsmouth and into Maine. We stopped at Nubble light in York Maine, which of course was full of people enjoying the very majestic view of the lighthouse.

New Hampshire has such a pretty coastline and Maine just continues the visual pleasure.  That said I would be remiss if I didn’t add that Jay and I would love to help you make New Hampshire your home so please reach out to us.

New Hampshire Special Spots

Frozen Jay and MonikaNew Hampshire Special Spots

It’s been a long cold winter in Southern NH with more snow than I can ever remember seeing filling my yard. Spring market might be a bit harder this year as I really think the melt will take awhile and then of course “brown” or “mud” season commonly known as spring will begin.  That said, if you are looking to move to NH you might enjoy this video playlist of some of our New Hampshire special spots.  These video clips,  while I am in no way a professional videographer, which will of course be apparent once you start watching the videos, will show you a real slice of life in NH.

Please also consider contacting us for your home buying and selling needs as we know all the New Hampshire special spots and communities and the real estate market.   Jay and Monika 603-944-9172 /BHHS Verani Realty 603-772-0600

NH Oceanfront Homes Market Report January and February 2013

SeacoastOceanfront market report January and February 2013

This market report is for Oceanfront homes that have direct access to the ocean or are across the street.

We used the towns of Portsmouth, Rye, New Castle, North Hampton, Hampton, Seabrook and one from Greenland for our report. You will fine the report at the end of this blog post.

The drive along the coast

We just love driving along the New Hampshire Seacoast on any given day or week or any season for that matter.  During the winter months we’ll bundle up and pack a lunch and snacks and leave our home as early in the day as possible since it gets dark early during the winter months. We usually start in Seabrook NH off of route 286 and 1A and travel past Browns Lobster Pond, which is a great place to eat seafood.   You can bring your own alcohol in and sit on picnic style type tables. You can eat indoors or outdoors weather permitting. This time of year they are open Friday’s Saturday’s and Sunday. The place was packed when we drove by yesterday.

Along the beach

As you get to the junction of route 1A and 286 you can turn right and head to Salisbury Beach in Massachusetts but we tend to turn left and head to Hampton Beach. As we head north on 1A off to our left is Seabrook Harbor and then about a mile up the road is the Hampton Bridge. Traffic can be heavy at the bridge during the summer months due  to the raising of the bridge for commercial fishing boats to enter Hampton Harbor. Other times it is due to the thousands of beach goers that flock to Hampton Beach to soak in the sun.

Heading to North Beach

Once you meander around all the pedestrians and check out all the T shirt shops, gift shops and arcades you wind around and go past Boars Head Full MoonBoars Head which has breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Hampton Beach. Just up the road is North Beach which at high tide can be treacherous as there is only rocks available to walk on. At low tide you can kick off your sandals and walk barefoot for a few miles along North Beach.

Plaice Cove, Hampton

This little hideaway is my wife’s favorite spot to walk out onto the boardwalk and take pictures of the tall beach grass and the tide crashing against the rocky beach. North Side Park is for residents only but during the off season it is not that crowded and we stay just long enough to take pictures and videos and soak in the scenery.

Portsmouth NH

After our time at North Side Park, we tend to keep heading north towards Portsmouth making stops along the way.   We  often make a stop at North Hampton State Beach where the beach is a little flatter than other parts along the coast. The nice thing about stopping here is that across the street is the Beach Plum a great place to stop for lunch and ice cream on a hot sunny summer day. There food is delicious and a little pricy but worth it.

Rye State Park

Next we usually follow the coast up into Rye and and stop at Rye State Park. We love this stretch of road and often gaze at the homes for sale and we usually try and stop at all the little scenic turnoffs along the highway along route 1A.  Some of the views are just breathtaking and even though we come up here often we often see something new all time. From Swans, to full moons, to the gorgeous ocean front, our small NH coastline is a delight and never gets old.

New Castle and Great Island Common

Whaleback LighthouseNext up is the town of New Castle and Great Island Common. The park is beautiful no matter what time of year, with picnic areas and a playground and swimming and views of Portsmouth lighthouse and Whaleback Lighthouse. We love this special spot!

Rye Harbor State Park full Moon Rises over Ragged Neck

Rye Harbor Full MoonNH REALTORS Moon Chasers

Jay and I just love chasing the moon and on Dec 10th we took a ride up the coast to Rye Harbor State Park to catch the moon rising over the ocean. We caught it just in time and stayed to watch it rise! I’m not sure if there are any other NH Realtors who are moon chasers but we so enjoy doing it and try to catch it rising at different spots along our beautiful NH seacoast.

We love living and working in southern NH and love sharing a little bit of our world via video with you.

Hope you all enjoy  this short video of the full moon rising over the Atlantic Ocean at Rye Harbor State Park.
