Isles of Shoals

We decided to take a family trek out to the Isles of Shoals, which are a group of islands off the coast of New Hampshire.  We were able to take the ferry and get off at Star Island and have a fun visit there.  The islands are breathtaking.   I had no idea before we moved to Maine that there are so many islands off the shores of the New England states!

On the ferry!

Fun to see the "back" of the shipyard where Carl works.  

Old naval prison on the shipyard.

Watching the bridge go up for us to pass under.

Finally on the island!

They use many solar panels there, to help make their own electricity.

I think this park at the resort area was the children's favorite part.  ;)

When the first people settled there they built the church out of a wood from a wrecked ship!

This bird poop covered monument tells of how the islands were initially a gift to John Smith from the king of England.
