Meet the Locals- Elaine!

Elaine from Stoneham, Massachusetts

My whole life

3.) What is your fondest memory of living here?  

Probably summers as a kid at Hampton Beach, New Hampshire.

4.) What is your favorite New England "hot spot" and why? 

Guess I'm getting old!  I never gravitate to hot spots anymore. I love Martha's Vineyard and Rockport, Mass. Really anywhere near the ocean is a hot spot to me.

    5.) What makes New England unique to you?

I think New England has a mystique. It is so old and has such history. It really is charming. I love walking the cobbledstoned streets and sidewalks, visiting the little fishing villages, and taking in the beauty of foliage season.

6.) Do you have a favorite New England recipe or dish? 

I defer to Susan Branch.  Her cookbooks have fabulous New England recipes.

7.) What season in New England do you like most? Why? 

Autumn. I love cooler temperatures and how can you beat the colors of Fall?

8.) How would you describe New England to an outsider?

New England has it all. Mountains and lakes, beaches and oceans. Modern cities and quaint old towns and the best seafood anywhere!

    9.) In your opinion, what is the best thing that ever came out of New England?

That's a tough one.  I have to think on that.

    10.) Do you have a photo that captures your love for this region? Insert it here:

 This photo is of Rockport, Massachusetts; quintessential New England
