Mechanic Ave.Wharf Portsmouth

One of the nicest parking spots in Portsmouth, NH is along Mechanic Ave. if you can find a space.
There are multiple views of maritime scenes here along the shore of the Piscataqua River. On this particular wharf you can buy fresh lobsters. In the distance you can see the booms of the overhead cranes at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. The busy waterway serves the Port of Portsmouth as well as many leisure and fishing boats.

So stunning, Dennis. Reminds me a bit of the Thea Foss Waterway out in Washington (Tacoma area). Not that I've seen lobsters for sale there, but that bit of rustic (one of the restaurants looks similar to this place) and longshoremen all mixed together!

Sweet, satisfying scene.
