Think Spring | Prescott Park

After the weather of the last few days, let’s stop and reflect on the fact that April is only 32 days away.  The decks will soon be open, and the trees will be back in bloom with blue skies and the return of the green vines.  Above, the power lines hang above Ceres Bakery on Penhallow Street and the chimneys of Sheafe Street.  Below, a shot of a tree in bloom at Prescott Park…a re-post of one of my favorites from warmer days.  Hope everyone is doing well through this weekend and has their power back or has found a way to stay warm.

Portsmouth Rooftops & The Missing (Poco’s) Deck

Today’s double feature includes some Portsmouth rooftops (& an awful lot of chimneys from the vantage point of the High/Hanover Street Parking Garage) and the case of the missing deck.

If you are like me and don’t (yet) have a membership to the 100 Club, this is the cheaper alternative in terms of views of the city.  It certainly doesn’t compare for overall visibility, but it’s neat to see the city from a new perspective.  Take a walk up to the top floor someday soon before it gets too cold and take a look around.

In more recent news, here’s evidence that the party is officially over at the Poco’s deck as we knew it.  One day it was there:

and the next, it was not.

Read more about the Ceres St. beautification project and have a look at the pre-demolition deck here:  TDP 9/29/2009.  Things are definitely changing on the Portsmouth waterfront, it’s going to be an exciting season next year – see you there in April.
