Portsmouth Waterfront at Dusk

As the summer dwindles away, evening arrives a little sooner every day.  I was able to enjoy another nice dinner out at Poco’s deck before the weather gets too unforgiving at this time of night…which was a treat, especially since the deck will be moving next year to a new location against the building.  This view will soon be part of the public park planned for the spot….which I’m looking forward to seeing how it comes out.  Somehow I think the waterfront won’t be the same with one less spot to enjoy a delicious margarita.

Departure | Moran Towing

One of the freighters visiting further upstream in the Piscataqua River from the NH State Pier making its way back towards Portsmouth Harbor. Moran Towing escorts the freighter in the fleeting afternoon hours towards the Atlantic Ocean.  Seen below is the Harpoon Willy’s waterfront deck.

The Famed Decks of Portsmouth

I’m not sure there are too many better ways to spend a warm and sunny evening than out on one of Portsmouth’s famed decks, enjoying a cold beverage.  Left to right are Harpoon Willy’s, The River House and the Old Ferry Landing.

Portsmouth Fabric Company | Penhallow Street

This view from Penhallow Street towards the waterfront is usually pretty interesting.  On a busy weekend you might see people flocking to Annabelle’s for ice cream, or on a summer evening you’ll see crowds heading towards the Decks, or during the winter you might see a massive freighter loading/unloading some materials on the Portsmouth docks.

Today you can see the Middle (Sarah Long) Bridge and the Piscataqua River Bridge in the distance and in the window.  It also didn’t hurt to have the most colorful van on the planet in the shot either.

Tugboats | Salt Piles

This ranks as one of my favorite Portsmouth waterfront photos.  The golden clouds at sunset frame this idyllic tugboat shot along with the salt piles at Granite State Minerals and the industrial smoke stack to the far right.  This was taken from above the Harpoon Willy’s deck during the winter, before the decks hit their stride during the spring/summer season.
