Evening at The Fish Pier

One of the best places to go for a walk in Portsmouth is at Prescott Park.  The park provides so many opportunities to enjoy beautiful and industrial waterfront scenes all year long, and lush gardens in the warmer months.  I decided to head over to Four Tree Island late one afternoon for sunset, but didn’t find much in the way of color or intrigue in the sky – so I focused instead on the beauty of this classic New England scene – complete with a commercial fishing fleet a steeple, and The Player’s Ring.

The Player's Ring

The Player’s Ring is a 19 year old organization located inside this 19th century brick building on Marcy Street, along the border of Prescott Park.  I’ve always loved the personality of this little structure, and I know some of the players who are regulars in the performances…and they are fascinating & great people.  Check out the building sometime and treat yourself to a play – if the poster in the door is any indication, it’s full of originality.
