What a great day! Warm and sunny and beautiful.
I met up with a new friend, Hans, at Deering Oaks Park in the late morning. We walked to a nearby doughnut shop (which bakes their wares with Maine potatoes!) to get a sweet treat, before setting out on some sightseeing adventures.
He took me to Two Lights, a lighthouse beach. Similar to Perkins Cove, I could not get over the geology of Maine’s coastal rocks, which look like petrified wood (or, truthfully, the old-timey Flake candy bars I remember from my childhood in Australia). The lighthouse was wonderfully scenic, too.
Afterward we went to a different nearby beach, with similar beautiful views of the ocean and clouds.
Arriving back into Portland, after a cool long chat about life, travels, and the like, I enjoyed walking through the nearby neighborhood, passing a beautiful church and spending some time sitting in a colorful plaza. (A man walked up to me there to ask about the Brompton; he, too, has considered buying one for himself.)
I topped off the day with a decadent dinner at an all-vegetarian restaurant, the Green Elephant, before bicycling back to my host Beka’s place before it got too chilly.
I’ve enjoyed my brief time in Maine. Tomorrow, I’ll hop back on the Amtrak Downeaster train to return to Boston for a few more days.
