Sunset/Lighthouse Cruise ~ The End

And so we journey to the end of a wonderful evening cruise. By this time is was getting pretty darned cold and I think most people had gone down onto the lower deck to try and get away from the wind. Once the sun finally set, all the photographers went down there as well.



Around this point there was a photographer frenzy on the boat. My husband said it was pretty intense. LOL! I just shot what I could and hoped for the best.




Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse and Fort Constitution, formerly known as Fort William and Mary




Whaleback Lighthouse ~ 1872








The sunsets behind Wentworth By the Sea hotel




Approaching Rye Harbor my husband looks out at the remains of an incredible sunset. Besides us, the people behind us were the only ones left on the upper deck, and they were wearing jackets.





Thank you for coming along with me and leaving such wonderful comments. In real time the trip was 2 1/2 hours long. In blog time it was much longer! LOL!

These were wonderful shots of your cruise, I'm so grateful you shared them. Makes me so homesick for New England (I'm in Tennessee)

Shot what you could get? All your photos are prize winners.

There's nothing like the peaches, pinks and purples of a sunset and when it's on the ocean it makes even the ripples in the water colorful.

Well done!

Your photos of this cruise are to die for gorgeous. We should all at some point in our lives take advantage of a sunset cruise.

With that pink sky I can see why there was such a frenzy. Love the pic of your husband. I have GOT to get to the northeastern coast ASAP. Your beautiful pictures are luring me there.

What a beautiful trip that was and your photo's are as always excellent Sharon. I was going to comment before but my laptop seems to have its own life now and then and refuses to do what I want it to do. :)))

It was lovely to see these photographs. The friends I stay with on my US visits live in Rye and I've been to the Wentworth-By-The-Sea hotel. So many of the photographs on your lovely blog are of places I'm familiar with - I've been coming to this area for over 30 years now and love it.
