Living here in Portsmouth New Hampshire offers an abundance of history and places to view that historical background Portsmouth
and the Seacoast is so rich with.  Just about everywhere you look,
you can find all kinds of things to do here that make history so
interesting.  

Growing up, I had no interest in anything to do with history at all,
but I can tell you much of it fascinates me now.  

And I am so lucky to live here in such a fabulous place called Portsmouth NH that’s so alive with history!!

 
One of those great places that showcases some of the history here in Portsmouth is the USS Albacore Park, just a few steps from downtown, and very easy to get to from the major highways.

This past weekend here in Portsmouth New Hampshire, we were fortunate to see history in the making.  Never before, in at least 100 years, has there ever been more than one Tall Ship in our port at any one time.  

This past weekend, for THREE whole days, we had the pure pleasure of FOUR of these magnificent beauties in the Port City, tied up at our State Pier.
