The Anchor at the Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion

The massive anchor that sits near the water at the Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion in Portsmouth, NH is pretty impressive.  I love the textures of the wood in this shot, and was happy that the green grass is back with the arrival of spring.

When I was a kid, we used to vacation in Cape Cod, and the house we rented had this humongous anchor that we would take our annual family picture with….grandparents, cousins, aunts & uncles….you could pack all of us into the frame, but you could still see the anchor.  This brings back fond memories, it would be a great spot to start a new family tradition someday…I wonder whatever happened to that old anchor.

The Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion is also a pretty impressive building as I’ve posted about before. I’ll be featuring more shots from today’s visit sometime in the future…sadly, I forgot my tripod and the shots didn’t come out as well as I’d hoped…guess it means I’ll have to make another trip!
