Every other weekend the man and I head out on a random road trip. We don’t always have a destination in mind, but one time months back my man had a destination in mind. He was going to test my dang anxiety and see about playing Bingo near the seacoast. He had told me about this Bingo option in the past but I was reluctant to agree, so he just brought me knowing that my anxiety may take over and I wouldn’t go in. That’s exactly what happened and I felt horrible, but being the man he is, having compassion for my anxiety, he had a plan B in mind.
That plan B was Hampton Beach, NH. He knew I loved the ocean so much and while it was completely off season and bit chilly to be strolling along the board walk at Hampton Beach in NH, we enjoyed our evening stroll. Since this time, we have ventured back to Hampton Beach, NH during our road trip adventures because it’s just a magical place where we connect. During the off season we experienced the ghost town feeling of stores being closed and few people around us. Then during the peak season we go to experience the joyful sound of many cultures, food and the sweet sound of waves rolling in off the ocean.
As time has gone one, we are sharing this special location with the children. Mike found that Hampton Beach, NH has weekly fireworks during the Summer season on Wednesday night. Let me tell you what, the first mention of this made me cringe as I am super strict about having my sons to bed at a specific time regardless of school season or not. The good news is that as my sons get older, I have learned to be a bit more flexible with the bedtime during Summer season. This allowed us to take the boys off to Hampton Beach, NH to enjoy some fireworks and arcade time. That evening was magical, I was able to see the bond build between Mike and the boys which of course means the world to me!
As time goes on I see this father type figure in Mike that I admire, he really is a great man to our family unit here. Next time we had a chance, which was on the 4th of July, we took my daughter and her friend up to Hampton Beach, NH to play in the arcades, shop stores and watch the fireworks. This was a whole different experience, us bringing teenagers to the ocean but it was such a great time.
