Fort Stark

A couple of week’s ago, I showed a view of the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. Well, if you have a naval shipyard, you must protect it. During the two World Wars, Fort Stark protected the mouth of Portsmouth Harbor. Now decommissioned and the guns scraped it is a park. You can access some parts of the fort but other parts are off limits due to structural concerns.

    I love these old forts. We have a couple here in sunny FL that we go to explore and take pictures. You are walking with history! Great photos, Chris.

    Beautiful shots, Chris! I love the compostion of each one of them! Shipyards are really fascinating – my granddad was a shipbuilding engineer, so there´s some sailor blood in my veins;)

      Thank you, Sarah. I want to also visit the Charlestown Navy Yard sometime this spring. It has some old dry docks and I believe there is an old frigate in one now.
      Sailor blood…that does sound exciting. Cheers! 😊

        Oh, I´m soo looking forward to see those pictures! Especially of the frigate! Wish you an exciting trip with the best of weathers for it!
        Well, I wish this sailor blood would work better – I´m getting sea-sick really quickly;) But I just love ships of all kinds! Even used to do some rowing when I was at school:)

        Me too! Then I´m sure you´d like the Seascapes by Hiroshi Sugimoto, if you don´t already know them? There´s been an exposition of his works a couple of years ago in Berlin and it was simply amazing! Cheers! Sarah 🙂
