Well, let's see...
I had a birthday, on the 11th, but mostly, I've been writing, and walking, and thinking. Not really a lot of meaty reporting in that.
Today, though, was Maine Lighthouse Day, and I determined that I would see me some lighthouses.
And so I did -- I saw Spring Ledge Light, Bug Light, and Portland Head Light. That's pretty dern good, since my original plan had been to see Bug Light.
I also saw several dogs -- a miniature poodle and a very young corgi -- who were kind enough to bestow some Vitamin Dog upon me. The corgi was so enthusiastic, I swear he was trying to figure out a way to clone himself on the spot, so he could have me and his people, too.
I will also note that Portland is lousy with forts. The dern things are EVERYwhere; Southern Maine Community College's campus us largely built on the remains of an old fort, and there are at least three more in eyeball distance from that one. So, wow. I guess it was some strategic, going 'way back.
There are pictures of the day's adventures here, as well as some new Archers Beach photos.
Tomorrow, it's back to walking, writing, and thinking.
