The Friendship passes Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse in Aug. 2008

I was going through some photos and came across this neat shot I had forgotten about. The Friendship, a reconstruction of a 171-foot three-masted Salem East Indiaman built in 1797, is seen here during a tall ship parade near Portsmouth, NH, in August 2008. Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse and Fort Constitution in New Castle can be seen in the background. The small boat is from Captain & Patty's Cruises in Kittery Point, Maine; see www.capandpatty.com.

Here's the Friendship in front of the old prison at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard:


  1. What a nice shot! I saw this up in Maine but missed it in Portsmouth.

  2. Thanks! It's always a treat to see these vessels under sail.
