Beneath the Memorial | Piscataqua River

The deteriorating underbelly of the Memorial Bridge that spans the Piscataqua River, linking Portsmouth and Kittery, highlights the urgency of the 86-year-old bridge’s needed repairs.  It’s currently at the top of New Hampshire’s red list for bridges, and even more importantly, was listed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.  The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard across the river looks surreal in the glow of the evening’s setting sun.  Wish I had a boat of my own I could keep at the dock too.
