Tell me a Story: October 2018: Portland Part Two

I started off our Maine vacation with Tell me a Story and to be honest I have only reached day 2.  Saturday and we were in Portland.  If you did not read Portland Day 1 you can do so here.  Portland is a busy harbor town and I wish we had more time to explore it.  Our goal today was to go whale watching, but while waiting for our departure time we explored around the city.  Portland harbor area is a mass of wharves and I loved exploring them all.

I just loved seeing all the reflections that I captured in Portland.

We decided to head off the main road and explore a couple of roads back.

Back street bars

Indeed life does feel good

This fascinated me because at the end of this alley way was a restaurant/bar.

I am a fan of external stairs.

Again another little back street with a whole lot of activity.

I could not resist this family of ducks.

Nor this pirate.

We had about 30 minutes of spare time before we headed out on the water for 4 hours, so why not enjoy the local fare.

We stopped at the Portland Lobster Co to have a beer and a shrimp wrap.  I have to be honest Maine is the best for Seafood, and we certainly had seafood every day.

We shared a shrimp stuffed wrap which was amazing

Our neighbors had lobster and I could not resist taking a photo much to Richards dismay.

But at least he gave me a smile.

I loved seeing all the bouys along the wall and could not resist this narrow depth of field image.

I decided that I should take a pic of this lighthouse in case I do not see another one in Maine (due to all the fog).

We are heading onto the Odyssey to go whale watching.  Check out for the next blog but don’t hold your breathe thinking you will see whales.  4 hours of no whales but  a lot of interesting images.

Portland, Maine is definitely place to visit.  It is vibrant, and there are party boats, opportunities to go whale watching, seal watching (which may have been a better option), Lighthouse boat trips.  There are breweries to visit and as I mentioned an abundance of really good food.  Do yourself a favor and add it to your itinerary if you are traveling to Maine.

This is a circle blog and I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else has got up to this month.  Follow the link here to see what my fellow blogger  Kim of Kim Sidwell Photography has for you this month.  Don’t forget to leave a little love on her page.
