Early Light in The South End

Brewster’s Bait & Tackle is perched above the back channel of the Piscataqua River. The South End and its historic homes, including the Wentworth-Gardner mansion, add color and texture further in the distance.

Congress Street & The North Church

Congress Street & The North Church

Icicles on Odd Fellows Hall on Congress Street are the real giveaway that this image was taken during the winter.  The windows of the buildings lining Congress Street lead back to the steeple of the North Church on a cloudless evening.

Skating at Puddle Dock Pond at Strawbery Banke

Skating at Puddle Dock Pond at Strawbery Banke

It has been amazing to see the vision of some dedicated and passionate locals come to life!  The folks behind Puddle Dock Pond fought a long/hard battle to see this project through, and as I have heard many people say since it’s opening – it is hard to imagine that such a phenomenal and quintessentially New England winter venue wasn’t here sooner.  I can’t wait to bring my family down for a skate once our little one is big enough to don a pair of ice skates!  In the meantime we’ll settle for enjoying the fun from the sidelines topped off with a hot chocolate next door.  A sincere THANK YOU to those who donated time and money to make sure that this project saw the light of day.  It is amazing to have another great winter activity right here in our own back yard!
