There are many different opinions on Portsmouth’s working waterfront, but I for one love the fact that we can enjoy freighters from all over the world right here in town.
In this image, the Atlantic Progress from Singapore sits docked at the Granite State Minerals pier along Portsmouth’s waterfront.
The Granite State Minerals pier is a busy place all winter long. It seems that as soon as one boat is finished unloading its salt haul, enough trucks are loading up and heading out of town to make way for the next ship to arrive – often only a day or two after. The Atlantic Progress sits docked at the terminal, working around the clock so that it can head back out to sea.
