All good things come to an end! I don't mean to sound gloomy (because in the words of W. Eugene Smith: " Every horizon, upon being reached, reveals another beckoning in the distance. Always, I am on the threshold".) I'm just a bit melancholic! Last September marked the last college drop-off of our youngest at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. As had become our tradition we spent a few days vacationing in the area. My husband plans these trips and they are always sublime and filled with delightful surprises.
It's naturally very hectic on drop-off day and there is way too much stuff (girls!) to gather at the storage facility, unload and lug up the stairs. We therefore never venture out very far but spend the first night in nearby Portland to gather our wits, get over the fast good-byes (very one-sided), stroll around, relax and find a good place to eat.
This year we didn't stay in Maine but travelled to Portsmouth, New Hampshire and then on to Rockport, Massachusetts. Here are a few scenic photos!
