merchant mariner families








...a highly unusual, sometimes maddening,
but mostly comical way of life.







December 13, 2013

anchors away...

    So tomorrow is the big day.  After 10 years, Beady and I are heading out for a more southern adventure.  The house has been sold, the boxes packed, and the tears are just starting to flow, AAAUUURRRGGHHHH!  I'm a hideous crier! 
 
So farewell for now Portsmouth, NH...it's been a wonderful 10 years, I couldn't have asked for a better time. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
SeaPearl in port, one of many that moved through each year.













North Church, downtown Portsmouth.  You can always see it from the bridge as you cross into Maine from New Hampshire.












My most favorite sight in the spring after a harsh and long New England winter.








Where it all began, Stranger Danger at the dreaded bus station!

 
 
 
 
Our favorite watering hole, Martingale Wharf.  We made lots and lots of plans here with a beautiful view of the water.
 







Always great shopping!










And even better food! 

 
 
 
 
The sight I will most remember Portsmouth for.  Those beautiful tugs...








So we will head out tomorrow and even though I know I'll be a little sad and even more sentimental, I'll try to remember this one little thought ---->


















It will undoubtedly make the journey so much sweeter and at the same time, most importantly, make it just a teensy bit easier to move away from the deliciousness of a quaint and cozy city on the water to a bright and busy explosion of life with my tiny family beside me.  I'll let you know when we get there!
