Playing in Portland

I'm so glad I live where all kinds of neat stuff is right at our fingertips. After finding Dale's remains on Sunday I decided I couldn't just sit still. We piled Sam, the monkey and I into the car and cruised into the Portland area in search of birds and an opportunity to get out, even if it was windy, cold and raw. This is what our afternoon looked like!

 I couldn't tell you the last time I saw a train, and I live here!

Let him out to play, I'm staying right here. It's too cold out there for me.

Ahhh, a playground. He doesn't care how cold it is! Sam and I waited in the car.

 I love that we can spend less than three hours on the road to enjoy a day like this. Maine is a great place to live!
