From the Editor | Late Summer 2017
TO ME, SUMMER MEANS SIMPLICITY.
I’m lucky enough to live walking distance from the ocean. The perks are limitless and, admittedly, there are a few downsides (traffic, anyone?), but I have to say that one of the best parts of my neighborhood is being able to pack a basket on a warm Wednesday night, stroll up to the sand, and find a place on a flat piece of jetty to watch the weekly fireworks from across the bay. No traffic and no crowds, but maybe some neighborhood kids running around. Either way, it doesn’t stop us from setting out a blanket, pouring from a growler, and snacking on some fresh, local cheese and ripe fruits from our CSA.
Truth be told, anywhere you live in New Hampshire makes you lucky enough. Whether you’re down on the Seacoast, further up in the North Country, over by Mount Monadnock, on the shores of our lakes, or in the Merrimack Valley, there are a plethora of places to hike, bike, kayak, or stroll, all with a sustainable lunch packed for the tastier side of summer travel. In this issue, we’ve got the recipes to get you set up and on your way to the great, simple outdoors.
