Geno's Chowder & Sandwich Shop

I went for a walk this evening and wanted to capture some new scenes…I hadn’t been to the South End in a couple weeks, so I thought I’d see if I could find anything that caught my eye.  It was relatively overcast and the sky wasn’t too exciting, so sweeping landscapes were basically out of the question.  I started in Prescott Park and headed towards the Peirce Island bridge.  I decided to stay close to the water and then came across a quiet scene at Geno’s Chowder & Sandwich Shop.  I’ve yet to grab lunch there, but every time the presidential primaries roll around – candidates are sure to stop in for a bit while they stump in Portsmouth.

The buoys on the fences around the restaurant and the lobster on the front gate had some fantastic New England charm and screamed of a great seafood joint.  I am pretty sure that Geno’s also recently was awarded a liquor license so you can now enjoy a beer or glass of wine with your lunch.  Check the place out – I know that I plan to soon.

Reflections of the South End

The historic South End shimmers in its reflection on the back channel of the Piscataqua River.  The hot orange sun sets behind an ominous sky during the early spring of 2010.  I’m pretty sure I will never get sick of this view, especially when the reflections are so great.  The South Ward Meetinghouse is visible mid-frame along with Geno’s Chowder & Sandwich Shop.  A great evening to enjoy a sunset.
