Portsmouth NH Home to Tall Ships Festival

Portsmouth NH Tall Ships Festival Boat Parade - Ann Cummings

Those of us who call Portsmouth NH home know that we have all kinds of great things that go on all year long.  One very special event that has been taking place for the last 10 summers is our Tall Ships Festival, put on by the Piscataqua Maritime Commission.  The folks on that commission do a fabulous job bringing in Tall Ships for us to enjoy each year.

This year, the first of the four ships visiting for our Tall Ships Festival began arriving a week ago.  The Tall Ships Boat Parade was Friday morning, starting out at the mouth of Portsmouth Harbor.  I watched them come into the harbor in Newcastle, and then I followed them through Newcastle and then down into the downtown area where they tied up at the State Piers downtown.

The Scenes of Home in Portsmouth NH

Calling Portsmouth NH home means so many different things to different people.

It can mean the closeness of family and friends.  It can mean the closeness of all the water in and around Portsmouth.  It can mean the beautiful historic homes and rich history we’re surrounded with here.  It can mean the beautiful parks scattered all about town. 

It can mean the wonderful brick buildings that make up our downtown area.  It can mean sitting outside downtown at any number of outdoor cafes and restaurants.

Portsmouth NH North Church Steeple 

To me, Portsmouth NH as my home means so many things, some of which are the iconic scenes that so many associate with this fabulous town……

….. the beautiful soaring steeple of the North Church, the Moran tugboats that navigate the river and harbor with grace and dignity, the bridges that connect Portsmouth NH with Kittery Maine, our beautiful parks ………. 

 

…..these and some much more are home to me, home here in Portsmouth New Hampshire.

Rye NH Waterfront Homes – Come Live the Dream!

 

Rye New Hampshire Waterfront Homes –

Dreaming of Homes on the Water

 

FILE0056-1

Rye NH is a beautiful little seaside town along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.  The next town south of Portsmouth, it has an entirely different feel.  Parts of Rye are quite country-like feeling, parts of Rye are on the ocean and offer stunning views and beaches for summer fun, and there are beautiful estate-like settings scattered all throughout Rye, and we have everything in between as well.

 

 

 

To me, when I drive through Rye, I get a peaceful serene feeling inside.  The roads and scenery just make you want to take your time and soak in all the beauty around you.  All of our towns here in the Seacoast areas of NH offer incredible beauty, and all are slightly varied in their town personalities.

Homes in Rye are priced from $280,000 for a small 3-bedroom home that needs some work to $5,377,000 for a stunning 7,000 square foot home with fabulous views of the ocean, Little Harbor, Wentworth-by-the-Sea Marina and hotel, Wentworth Golf Course, and more.
