Necking Hill
My wife and I periodically walk from our house to Garrison Hill to climb the observation tower and see the views. On a clear day in winter you can see the snowcapped peaks of Mt. Washington and the northern Presidentials glowing with reflected sunlight. You get some pretty nice views of the Pawtuckaway mountains, Green Hill over in Wakefield, and Mt Agamenticus in Maine nearby. You can see the I-95 bridge going over the Piscataqua and also the spires and landmarks of downtown Dover. The views are truly sublime

Another thing you're quite likely to see on any given day is some couple vigorously making out in a parked vehicle. There's always a few cars in the hill's lot and really there's no mistaking the fact that oftentimes you see people inside who happen to be making out. Mind you, these are not teenagers but some older couple locked in a loving embrace and joined at the lips. Its funny, my wife and I take turns with the binoculars trying to see the extent of the goings on that are taking place. You sometimes see hands moving back and forth, and it's hard to determine what anatomy is being stroked - usually its someone's back innocently enough. In any case though its bizarre that we've witnessed this on several different occasions. And even more curious is that each time it happens to be an older couple going at it in the car. Why the need to go and make out in the middle of a Sunday afternoon? If the people are married, why not go get it on in bed? Conversely, if the people are dating, why not go do it at each other's home or apartment? Indeed, thinking it through, it appears that Garrison Hill is the site where adulterers go to pursue forbidden love. This has to be the most likely explanation for these goings on.

So the next time you're in Dover, pack yourself a nice picnic lunch, grab the binoculars, and take in the panoramic sites. And oh yeah, check out the parked cars while you're there. You're bound to see some fierce necking.

The first time this happened, I think it was a lot more than necking. But I couldn't get a goo view through the binoculars.

Maybe these people have a brood of kids at home, and in order to get any alone time they have to go parking.. I can see my husband and I having to do that in the not too distant future.. where is this place again?? :)

I have to agree with xianfern, having kids at home doing that sort of thing could be the only way to get some alone time. Not to mention, nothing wrong with an older couple acting like kids, good way to keep a marriage alive!

I think I recall being tossed a bag of Doritos and given free reign of the TV while told "Not to bother Mommy and Daddy for a few minutes"....
