Joseph Sawtelle Pier | Prescott Park

With the rain and the sun come rainbows.  Here, a visit to the Joseph Sawtelle Pier was rewarded with some sunshine and a rainbow along with some much needed rain (my lawn appreciates it).  The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard can be seen in the background with its towering cranes.   Later this week will feature another one of Prescott Park’s piers.

Read a little bit about Seacoast legend Joseph “Joe” Sawtelle HERE, in a piece written by local historian Dennis Robinson.  Sawtelle was a real estate developer and a man of the community.  Unfortunately Joe passed before I arrived here on the Seacoast, I have a feeling I would have enjoyed having the chance to meet him.

  1. With May 2nd being the 10th anniversary of my father’s passing, I’ve been reminicing and going through old articles online. I found your beautiful photo that I never knew existed. I wish you had had the opportunity to meet my father, he was a remarkable man. Thank you so much for mentioning him with your kind words, and for your magnificant photo.

    We miss him terribly.

    1. Hi Sue,

      Thank you very much for taking the time to visit and to share your comment. Your father was a tremendous man who undeniably left his mark on the seacoast, making it a better place. I really wish I had the opportunity to meet him, all those I know in the community have great things to say about him. I’m sorry for your loss.
      Warm Regards,
      Phil
