Portsmouth, NH

I had dinner last night with Rex and his wife in downtown Portsmouth, NH. At first I was struck by the fact that the women outnumber the men both on the street and in the restaurants about 5 to 1. After a bit it dawned on me that downtown is a shopper's heaven. The entire downtown is composed of very nice upscale shops. I understand that on the Kittery Maine side of the river there are also a large number of outlet stores.

We had a nice dinner in a local brew pub. It took me back to Milwaukee and Louie's Demise Beer and the Louie's Last Regatta.

This morning I turned on the sideband radio and heard a Japanese Ham Radio station in Tokyo. Even though sunspots have not been cooperating it seems that the 20 meter band is having some very nice openings.

Off in about an hour to Portland, Maine.
