The weekend brought plenty of grey skies and snow. Here are a few scenes from around town for your viewing pleasure (without the cold). On Saturday night I ventured out to the Portsmouth Brewery for some good beer and a good burger.
The Sheafe Warehouse has always intrigued me. It’s old, and it looks it. One of the local art associations does an art show there every year, and I made it a couple years back…maybe I’ll have this shot in the show someday. Anyway, I’ve been trying to get a shot I liked of the building for quite some time now…I think this is the closest I’ve been yet. It’s worth visiting on the waterfront of the Piscataqua any time of day if you’re out for a stroll in Prescott Park.
For some history on the building, head over to SeacoastNH.com, where it talks about the 17th century warehouse as one of “the last large relics of the bustling waterfront back when Portsmouth was a world trade center in the Age of Sail.”
