Ogunquit Beach at Dusk

Steph and I took a trip north with our little munchkin to visit some of our oldest friends, who also happen to be the reason we met each other.  Ogunquit Beach at dusk was a magical place after a dinner downtown, with some beautiful pastels in the sky and warm summer air with the refreshing ocean breeze.  I’ve got many more images to share from our little summer getaway that I’m looking forward to sharing!

Market Square | Portsmouth, NH

Summer in the seacoast is a beautiful thing – people come from all over to visit and the energy in the downtown increases significantly.  A trio of kids were playing great music and the late day light in Market Square made for a beautiful scene.

In The Wind on The Gundalow

The Gundalow is one of Portsmouth’s gems – a local community came together to raise funds to construct this replica of a working commercial barge that used to sail up and down the Piscataqua River to transport merchandise throughout the region.  I was fortunate to get out for a beautiful sunset sail this summer on the Piscataqua – and enjoyed sitting beneath this gorgeous sail.

A Night On The Waterfront

From a distance, a night on the waterfront in Portsmouth seems tranquil and inviting.  This same scene from the decks themselves reveals a busy and vibrant night life, where it’s normal to have to wait for a table – but it’s usually all worth it if you can time it perfectly and enjoy a summer sunset out over the Piscataqua River on a warm night.

Sunset at Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse

On a sunset cruise with Portsmouth Harbor Cruises, we were treated to a beautiful sky and a vivid cloudscape.  On our way back into Portsmouth as the ship was turning around, this scene caught my eye – bright pink and blue clouds hovering over Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse in New Castle.

At The Beach

An empty lifeguard chair stands watch over the Atlantic Ocean on Craigville Beach in Cape Cod.  I thought this would be appropriate to share as our beaches here in NH have been seeing an influx of visitors this summer – and nearly all lifeguard chairs I’ve ever seen evoke the same essence of being at the beach.

Witch Cove Marina

 

Another one of my favorite spots during the summer is BG’s Boat House.  It’s a classic New England waterfront spot, a great place for seafood and for taking in a sunset.  The muted colors at sunset made for a quiet scene.   The boats in the frame are all docked at Witch Cove Marina – though we saw a few people come and go on the empty pier in the middle of the photo.
