a maine lake house part iii: portland head light and lena's birthday

This trip to Maine was very special in that it contained three of our family's birthdays. And next on deck was my niece Lena girl! So naturally the day was filled with things that a one year old lovely lady would enjoy, right? Right. We headed off to Portland Head Light in defiance of the ominous clouds and really lucked out as the rain moved out just in time. This is apparently the oldest lighthouse in Maine and has all sorts of nice wandering trails surrounding it. The umbrella even came in handy to protect my mother from the sun, which she really enjoyed. We even saw a few little lupines! 

We then drove to Portland to see about the Shipyard Brewing Company, where we had a lovely tasting. That grapefruit one man, my fav. We had lunch in Portland as well and then tried in vain to find what we imagined Portland would have. A harbor. Like one we could walk along and see the fishing boats and the like. But after a few rough looking alleys we decided to cut our losses and take the babies home. Where we had cake! And singing! And another good sunset!
