The Pier at Fort Foster | Kittery, ME

For today’s post we head to the other side of the Piscataqua River.  This long and inviting pier is located at Fort Foster in Kittery, ME – which is near the former life saving station in the mouth of the Piscataqua River, close to Whaleback Lighthouse.  If you look closely – you can spot Whaleback between the supports of the Pier itself.

I decided to head over to the Maine side of the river for a sunset voyage over the weekend…as it’s one of the few places where you can get a gorgeous sunset over the waterfront on the eastern seaboard (at least on the part that’s within driving distance).

I’ll be featuring several more shots from the evening’s travels – with a good portion coming from the quick hour that I spent wandering around the pier and watching the tide go out as the sun went down.  Quite a peaceful evening.

Whaleback Light in Portmsouth Harbor

The lighthouse seen in the distance is Whaleback Lighthouse located in Portsmouth Harbor.  The foreground is Great Island Common in Newcastle, NH.  Visible to the left side of the image is Fort Foster in Kittery, Maine.  Always a peaceful vantage point with a mix of activity from those visiting the island.
