Each month, Down East editors select our favorite response to “Where in Maine?” Here is our favorite letter from November’s photo of Fort Foster Pier.
That’s the sunset over the pier at Fort Foster. We don’t often see sunset there, but we’ve been walking the 2-mile loop in the early morning for more than two decades. We always pause at the end of the pier to enjoy the mighty Piscataqua River, with its wildlife, lobstermen, and sailboats, tugs, and ships coming and going. Since New Hampshire identifies with many things that are Kittery’s (e.g., the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard), we’re okay with sharing their Major General John Foster for our fort.
