A top weekend in Maine

With all this worldwide attention on the goings-on in Vancouver these days, why not switch gears and behold some February pictures of Maine?  Ok yeah, kinda random, but that’s what I got to share.

I like to make day and weekend trips.  And living in Boston this past decade has afforded me scores of such opportunities because there is an endless array of things to see ‘round these parts.  In just a couple of hours, you can get to:  Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, the Berkshires, Cape Cod & the islands and lots of other cool places in Massachusetts.

During the wintertime, without countless tourists lurking about, eating lobster and history buffs, drawn by the rich presidential history, avidly retracing steps of days past, many of the quaint spots in New England are transformed into sleepy towns.  Not a whole lot is going on there so we stroll, camera in hand, until the cold wearies us and we pop into a nearby café or shop.  Anyway, here are some snaps of Portland and Portsmouth, both worth a visit if you get the chance.
