Portsmouth Harbor Cruise!

On Wednesday night we tagged along with Collin’s dad,  Bill, on a sunset cruise around Portsmouth Harbor! It was put on by the local bank (Kennebunk Savings- no fees!) And it was so much fun!  Collin and I had never been out on the water in Portsmouth before and jumped on the opportunity to do something we normally wouldn’t do!  It’s fun playing tourist when vacation season is over!

It was a beautiful September night, a little chilly but not bad at all.  I was impressed/flabbergasted at some of the outfits the ladies on the cruise chose to wear.  I would have been freezing my behind off if I’d been wearing a dress with no tights AND no jacket!  I’m all about the sweaters, pants, and cozy socks as soon as it gets below 60 degrees.

We boarded around 5:45 and took off out of the Portsmouth Harbor towards the Open Ocean towards the Isle of Shoals.

We’d never seen Portsmouth from this side before!  There are some really nice apartments on the water.

Newcastle is a cute little suburb of Portsmouth with a really great sandwich shop and waterfront housing!  I’ve only experienced one of these things..

There’s something fantastic about lighthouses.
