Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge

Portsmouth

Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse, New Castle, sits on the grounds of Fort Constitution, originally known as Fort William and Mary, where the Piscataqua River and the Atlantic Ocean Converge.

It is the only lighthouse that is on the mainland of New Hampshire and was constructed in 1877 during the Revolutionary War to protect the Portsmouth Harbor, its shipbuilding industry, and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.

The Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse sponsor open houses during the year when you can climb to the top and enjoy the spectacular view.

    Lovely picture! I respect people who band together to preserve national treasures like this and then open them up so everyone can enjoy them. Inspired by books I read in grade school, I always dreamed about living in a lighthouse!
