Whales, Tales and Trails: Strawbery Banke

Strawbery Banke is a wonderful living history museum in the Portsmouth, New Hampshire wharf district.  Houses built in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, picnic tables under trees, wide porches, lush gardens, games to play such as croquet, hoop rolling, the graces, costumed interpreters representing all the groups of people who have inhabited this settlement built around this little inlet called  'Puddle Dock,' shopping,  food and just plain fun. The girls learned about weaving, gardening, coopering, shipping, the principal exports and imports of New Hampshire, and lots more.  BONUS: it was about 15 degrees cooler than in Metro Boston!

One of the girls told us that she woke up thinking that so much had happened in the first two days of the event that she was sad because she thought it must be over - but then she realized that there were 4 more days and she was very happy.  And when we heard that, the committee members realized that all the work is worth it, because it's all about the girls, and this is an amazing group of super Girl Scouts!
