A Foggy Morning Greets the Tall Ships Arrival in Portsmouth
Day 3 of Shark Week saw the arrival of the Tall Ships from the Piscataqua River in to Portsmouth Harbor. Although the Parade of Sails was beautiful, despite the fog, I think I enjoyed the people I met a tiny bit more.
A-Train and I were sitting at the perfect position at the Portsmouth Yacht Club, along with members of the Piscataqua Maritime Commission, Jerry Gulley and Chad Chadwick. I would love to live in any of the houses around the Yacht Club. It sure was pretty.
Jerry and Chad told us some great stories about Portsmouth and the building we were sitting in. The Portsmouth Yacht Club, which is in New Castle - weird, I know, used to be located at Strawberry Bank in Portsmouth. By boat it came over to where it sits today.
The Yacht club looks out to a big industrial looking building to the left of the view. Now a vacant prison, there is nothing that can be done with this building, as it's full of asbestos. I say it's a project for someone who knows a thing or two about that sort of thing.
I also met the Cunningham family. I love all of them. Especially, Cheryl, a beautiful 9 year old girl who I just want to hang out with in my free time. We can cook for Aggie the dog and sail with her Mom and Dad, Kirstin and Joe Cunningham on their boat, Therapy. Sounds like time well spent to me! #callme
