Fiery Sunset in Portsmouth

Sometimes you can hardly believe what you see.  This sunset was one of those things.

Happy Independence Day | Portsmouth Fireworks

Thank you to all of the patriots, past and present, who contribute to earning and maintaining our country’s freedom.

Here is a glimpse of the 2012 Portsmouth fireworks as seen from across the river in Kittery.

Dusk at Great Island Common

It’s truly amazing how much access that we have to the waterfront here on New Hampshire’s seacoast.  There are many coastlines around the country that are filled to the max with beautiful homes, restricting the general public from enjoying the ocean’s natural beauty.  Among our great parks and waterfront vistas, New Castle’s Great Island Common ranks as one of my favorites.  It’s a spot to enjoy lighthouses, picnics, swings, and the rocky coastline.

The Blue Angels Visit Portsmouth 2012

The Blue Angels stormed into Portsmouth last week, and demonstrated their amazing flying skills throughout the weekend.  I’m always amazed at the speed, the sound, and the precision when these guys perform.  I decided to stay home this year to see what I could observe from my house…and was able to grab these shots from my outdoor deck!  Be sure to click each image to see it large – you can make out the pilots’ helmets in the second photo!
