Took a trip up to Maine yesterday and stop in at a few of the Forts in Kittery, Maine. Fort Foster, Fort McClary. Was also able to take some photos of Fort Constitution which is in New Hampshire and across the bay in Portsmouth Harbor from the Kittery forts.

Well to start out here are the photos of Fort McClary.

Kewl. I used to hang out at Fort Popham when I was stationed in Maine, back in my Navy days.

Monterey13... I haven't been to that one quite. Would you have any photos? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I was hoping that they would be open up for the season... but they don't open the Forts to the public until next month. So I couldn't get any inside photos.

When I was there, Ft Popham was open 24/7. I remember because we did a little...ahem...partying there. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/halo.gif
