Wentworth by the Sea

Wentworth by the Sea - My Friend Debbie     The Marriott Wentworth is only an hour and a half from Boston. It was originally built in 1874 and restored in 2003. The Victorian-style hotel overlooks Little Harbor. The hotel features a marina, golf course, and an indoor pool with spa tub.

     What a delightful oasis to visit in New castle, NH. From the moment we arrived we were impressed by the scenery, atmosphere, view from the window of our room, the dinning areas and the food. Everyone was friendly and the accommodations were magnificent!

     If you are coming by sea, the marina at Wentworth can accommodate boats as large as 200 feet and has 170 slips.

     There were so many things to do and to see at The Wentworth, as well as towns close by, so off we went.

     Have you ever seen a submarine on dry ground? "The USS Albacore," (AGss-569), 1953-1972 ,was the first Navy-designed vessel with a true underwater hull of cylindrical shape. It is the standard for today's submarines worldwide, built by Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. It is the prototype for the Navy's nuclear powered submarine force and the first boat built specifically to operate underwater. Her motto was PRAENUNTIUS FUTURI (Forerunner of the Future) and her mission was experimental.

     She was maneuvered to dry ground by dismantling a railroad bridge and by using a cutout section of a four-lane highway. It took nearly six months and a system of locks before she finally was settled on a concrete cradle at Albacore Park. It is fascinating to see!

     Let's move on to food. Try the Blue Claw, right on the water in Portsmouth, NH. You can probably get a photo op of three tugs tied up at the pier.

     There are a lot of water front shops displaying true artisan craftsmanship. Flowers are planted everywhere and in full bloom, just beautiful!

     The most memorable adventure was aboard a tugboat. "The Tug Alley Too," takes only six people at a time for a cruise. You can bring food and beverages aboard. The Captain and First Mate are extremely proficient, as they navigate the Piscataqua River, one of the swiftest and most powerful of the world's rivers.

     The First Mate had so much information to share about the history of the river. The Piscataqua River continues to support twenty-first century commerce, defense, exploration, education and recreation.
