A Portland wander

I drive by Portland at least twice a year as I head to Acadia National Park, but it's been a long time since I actually stopped. Today was a good day for a reintroduction to Portland, a shared wander with a friend from Texas. Lauren and I touched just a few spots, starting with East End Beach, jumping to Bug Light, and on to Portland Head Light. It's funny, I was sure I had visited Portland Head Light before, but when we arrived it was totally unfamiliar. I thought I was losing memories until I realized that the lighthouse that I remembered was the Cape Elizabeth "Two Lights".

It was a beautiful day for a coastal visit. The temperatures were quite reasonable for most of the day, turning chilly as the wind started whipping as we were visiting Bug Light. Hiding behind the lighthouse helped!
