Where in the World is Smokey?

Fall in New England

Aimee Ruzicka graduated from UT Knoxville in 1971 with a bachelor’s degree in history and in 1974 with a master’s degree in library science. A retired law librarian, she now lives in Nesquehoning, Pa., in the southern Poconos.

Aimee and her husband were touring New England in October and stopped in Portsmouth, N.H. They visited the lighthouse that protects Portsmouth Harbor at the mouth of the Piscataqua River.

Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse, also known as Fort Point Lighthouse, New Castle Lighthouse and Fort Constitution Lighthouse, was first established in June 1771, making it the first light station north of Boston in the American colonies. Today’s 48-foot tower was built in 1878.

They also spent time at the home of the submarine USS Albacore. This is a special place, as it has a memorial garden that honors the 52 submarines and 3,505 submariners who were lost during World War II.
