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.
For the past few days, I’ve been hinting around and showing glimpses of the lighthouse I visited last Saturday. Here she is along with images of Fort Constitution next to her.
On the way to Ogunquit a couple of weeks ago, I met people from my local photo group at Fort McClary in Kittery, Maine. Here are a few of the images from that shoot. There were a pile of granite blocks scattered at the base of the hill on which the fort sits. We are not sure if they were part of a defensive works or not, but they looked like giant toy blocks.
