In an effort to salvage a tiny bit of summer before school begins next week, we took a couple of days and went to Portland.
We wandered downtown and enjoyed the scenery of Portland Harbor
and Casco Bay.
We took in a Sea Dogs baseball game which was lots of fun.
I dragged everyone out of bed to catch sunrise at Portland Head Lighthouse.
Nobody seemed to mind the early hour as the hotel beds were miserable.
However, there was no sunrise to be seen – it was a gray, wet day. Yet, it was my first visit to the lighthouse and it was spectacular despite the weather.
We visited the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray. Of course I loved seeing the owls. This great horned was my best shot of the day.
We shopped our way home and never have I ever been so grateful to sleep in my bed. I love exploring Maine, but there’s no question that I’m a homebody at heart.
