Discovering Portland ME

Traveling up the eastern seaboard
Portland Maine is worth a stop.

 

Built in 1858 the ruins of the Goddard Mansion remain
near the Port Elizabeth Head.


Watching both artists and ships is a quite popular way of relaxing along the shores.

Painting their vessel.


This railroad bridge swivels to make way for boats.


:)
Lots of tee shirts for fisherman!



And, of course, 'lob-stah'
as the locals pronounce it.

What a great place for a vacation. I'd love to go someday. Just checked my driving distance calculator and it's only 1,812 miles from my home!
