"Portsmouth VT meeting September 21-23, 2007" Portsmouth by Dabs

I was so happy when EmilieNoelle offered to host the fall US VT meeting in Portsmouth New Hampshire, at first because people stopped asking me to have one in Chicago but after I started taking a look at the information she was posting, it looked like a lovely place to visit and very close to Maine which I have wanted to visit for years. Not to mention that I got to add not one, but two states to my map!

EmilieNoelle did a terrific job of organzing the event, everyone had a great time! She undertook this meeting without having another person to help her out, I know she spent hours and hours gathering information, answering questions and making arrangements and reservations so a big THANKS goes out to Emilie!!!! And thanks to Chris (balfor) for helping with the awesome name badges and virtual attendees.

Even if there is not a VT meeting in town, Portsmouth is a lovely place to visit for a day. Strawberry Banke was a very interesting slice of history, the Isle of Shoals cruise was nice and downtown Portsmouth is darling.

    I am always drawn to historic homes. Strawberry Banke sounds like something I would really enjoy. That lighthouse looks delightful too. Thanks for the lovely tour of Portsmouth.

    Looks like you had fun in Portsmouth, and saw a lot too. But over $80 for a Motel 6! I remember when they were all only six dollars. Remembering such stuff is one of the curses of growing older.

    Enjoyed updates, especially about the "spiffy prison and Strawberry Banke. [And new travelogue with details].Great photos and explanations of the VT activities. Certainly fun to finally "see" Yubert.

    That sure was a fun VT meet eh Kristi! And see - the Motel 6 wasn't that bad. And yes, it sure was nice having a mini-fridge and microwave for the weekend.

    OMG! A photo of Yubert! I hope this proves once and for all that he and I are not the same person!

    Thanks for the postcard, it matches the one from H & L. Hey what do you think about Bath & the Cotswolds? I think I should like to go there, so there.
