HAMPTON, N.H. —
Extreme heat draws crowds to the Seacoast, and people packed Hampton Beach on Saturday for relief.
“This is my favorite time of the year,” said Seth Hinson. “I hate the winter. I can’t stand it. I wish it was 100 every day.”Advertisement
Some tried to spend as much time in the ocean as possible.
“Playing some paddle ball, doing a little body surfing and boogie boarding — just having a great time,” said Bobby Costanzo of Bellingham, Massachusetts. “I’m just trying to get as cool as I can.”
Lifeguards at the beach are focused on the water, but they are prepared for any heat-related illnesses that may arise.
Chief Patrick Murphy of the New Hampshire Beach Patrol said there hadn’t been any major issues.
“Hopefully that continues: everyone stays nice and safe out on the beach,” he said.
It was hot enough here for one Hampton restaurant to stay closed for the day. Logan’s run on Lafayette Road posted on Facebook that it closed because it wanted to keep its employees safe.
