But the advancing fog (and I’ve never witnessed fog coming in like this in my life) said no lighthouses for you! After leaving Old Orchard Beach we drove to Cape Elizabeth to see two lighthouses there. This was all we saw…
I will say that the rocky shores in Maine varied from small rocks, to bigger round ones to some that just seemed more like petrified wood to me. Very geological!
I had fun here! It is a popular area with a sandy beach; I was able to get in the water (up to my ankles and the water wasn’t too chilly) and the weather was perfect for me to get some shots I’ve always wanted to try.
How did she get in here?😉
I didn’t come up with that! It’s written on a couple of oars on the side of this building at the Cape Neddick Lobster Pound in Maine.
I have been slightly terrified of gulls and some other birds after watching Hitchcock’s The Birds (many many times, what can I say it’s a classic!) so when we were touring lighthouses in Maine there they were and some of them were huge! But this one was a different color than all the others I’ve ever seen. He was brown and white, as you can see in the smaller photo. So is this a different kind of gull or a different seabird?
Whatever it is that beak looks like it can inflict some serious damage.
And on our road trip we had plenty of it! So much so that DH and I both agreed we can hold off from eating any more of it for awhile. Have a nice weekend….with or without lobster😉
Many of the old homes and buildings in the area had been re-purposed into businesses but even with modern window air conditioning units hanging from old windows, the trash bins out front and all of the signs stating legal and family therapy services, the building were still charming and colorful. I wonder if they were this colorful when they were first built though?
By the way, the street name is The Hill.
