Another summer runs its course pretty much according to standard format. We didn’t get to do everything we wanted to do or intended, had to scramble a bit at the end to do things that we could have and perhaps should have done earlier and, in the end, a good time was had by all.

An early morning visit to Portland Head Light is a nice way to stage one’s exit from Maine. It on the grounds of an excellent city park open from sunrise to sunset. Ten minutes after sunrise, it was open and active. People came to jog, walk their dogs and, of course, to photograph the lighthouse. We had co-operative lighting and almost co-operative wave action. Swells from Katia were advertised to give us some action on the rocks but only minimally as it turned out. That’s OK as early morning light coming in just at water level makes them appear to be more than they are.

Time to head south.
