(Originally published 7/27/2016 on my old blog, Outdated By Design.) Portland, Maine, in particular the Old Port is the place to be if you like the water! Wayne and I took a round-trip ferry ride to Peaks Island. Ready for the ride?
Looking out at South Portland as we head away from the terminal.
Wayne loves boats. He built yachts and designed yacht systems for almost two decades!
It was a hot day so the cool breeze felt great. The cute little lighthouse is Breakwater Lighthouse also known as “Bug Light.”
Approaching Peaks Island…
Close-up of a couple of kids having fun. They dove into the water as we passed them.
See that crowd waiting to get on the ferry back to Portland? To the left is a bar that has a “Reggae Sunday.” It’s popular with literally boatloads of college kids. We stayed on the ferry because we were just on it for the ride.
The other passengers seemed to enjoy the views and breeze on the way back.
Back on land, gulls were playing in a parking lot puddle even though there’s an entire bay feet away.
Speaking of gulls, when docking I witnessed a gull gulp down a large flopping fish! I wish I had caught it on camera but it happened so quickly.
After the ride we had the memories. And boat hair.
