Containing more than 18 dozen eggs and 60 pounds of flour, this 26 square foot gingerbread house, made by Jim Shalkoski is a replica of Salisbury Beach Pavilion as it was in the 1950's.    Salisbury Beach was a busy place back then with families coming from quite a distance to visit the many attractions, ride the roller coaster and enjoy the beach.  All of the ingredients are made from scratch and are edible. There are more than 42 pounds of sugar in the frosting, and two gallons of corn syrup and molasses. The gingerbread house weighs more than one hundred pounds and is decorated with more than 600 miniature lights. The house was made from the inside out, placing the miniature people on the inside. It is 5 feet wide and 6 feet tall.  Jim is a bartender at Seaglass Restaurant in Salisbu...

Public gets first look at beach vision Thompson Group presentation aims to give new life to project By Angeljean Chiaramida Staff writer   SALISBURY - Picture a wider beach with a secondary dunes system to prevent habitual flooding, boardwalks along the ocean and salt marsh, hotels serving as vacation and spa destinations, sheltered arcades, concert venues, a public beach club, an indoor water park, and even a 100-acre alternative energy-generating park in town to fuel it all. Those are just some of the many concepts being considered by the Cambridge development company hoping to economically and environmentally revitalize Salisbury Beach Center. Last night, for the first time since their move to redevelop Salisbury Beach Center began three years ago, the principal players in the Thomps...

I've been playing around with video and while I have not yet figured out how to edit, I have been having fun with them. Recently we spent a week camping at the beach. I love the beach and camping there is close enough for us to go back and forth to work as needed. That means that I can enjoy, coming home to the beach after work and not feel guilty for having been away or vegging out a little bit more than usual. Plus being connected via e-mail and internet makes all the difference in the world. I can do property searches; update my sellers all while watching the boats sail by. Anyway, like I said I've been playing with video and this week I tried out Vimeo. So far I really like it. The upload seemed much faster than Veoh and YouTube and the end result is pretty nice. Now if I can only l...

Living in Southern New Hampshire really is a true delight! I love the location...30 minutes to ocean beaches an hour or so north and I'm in the mountains. One place near home that we love to visit is in the state of Massachusetts, a very popular ocean side state park and campground called Salisbury Beach Reservation. A few days at the beach always has a way of recharging me…making me realize just how lucky I am that I can come here. We're lucky because while camping at the beach, we can work and still enjoy all the sights and sounds of beach side living. The Atlantic Ocean, the smell of salt in the air, the gorgeous wild beach roses, cooking outdoors, and sitting under the awning…it’s all so relaxing. We booked this camping trip last Thursday and were lucky to get a spot for the very ne...

It's not too often you can wake up in the morning and walk or ride your bike down the road to the beach and watch the sunrise. My wife Monika had been bugging me for a couple of weeks to head to the beach bright and early and take pictures of the sunrise. We had been camping at Salisbury State Beach Reservation campground for a couple of weeks while we headed back and forth to work. You realy didn't think Monika was going to get up and really head down there at 5:45 AM did ya? Well I did make it down to the beach that day and it was a pretty sunrise as it had been the last few days. This was September 6th, 2007.  Online Videos by   When I headed down to the beach it was just me and a lonely fisherman trying to catch that night's dinner. I was then joined by a few people trying ...

Flat Matt and Anna Banana experience camping... albeit for a short time!!!Ann Cummings and her honey Bear, brought Active Rain's Flat Matt to Salisbury State Beach Reservation Camp Ground to visit us recently. Jay and I were deeply honored to have Flat Matt visit our humble home on wheels and I was a nervous hostess as I really wanted Flatt Matt's 1st New England camping experience to be exceptional.Flat Matt took a little walkabout checking out some camp sites and the very pretty campground beach. He seemed to enjoy himself very much even though his goofy expression never changed much! Salisbury Beach is a perfect place for Flat Matt to feel at home and "fit in", as there are so many interesting characters here that nobody thought much of a few ADULTS walking about with a paper "doll" ...
