The Old Port in Portland, Maine


I was destined to return to Maine for my vacation this year, to escape the heat of South Louisiana.  Cool temps did await me in Portland, where I spent two nights in a hotel on the waterfront overlooking Casco Bay.  Although I didn’t have the time to take the ferry, I am told Peaks Island is nice, only about 20 minutes away.  I spent most of my time checking out the Old Port, which was right across the street from my hotel.  It features many different sites and seafood smells-the good kind. The port was bustling with a ferry, restaurants and working fishing boats.  The scene is a pleasant walk with cool breezes.  Great restaurants and shops are also located in the surrounding few blocks.
