Casco Bay, Portland, Maine

looking back at Portland
We took the Casco Bay Lines "Mailboat Run" on our visit to Portland. The 3 hour long trip brings mail, passengers and freight to the islands; Little Diamond, Great Diamond, Long, Cliff and Chebeague.

There were lots of gulls and terns, fabulous scenery and great photo ops!

I don't envy this boat owner's clean-up job! Maybe the terns didn't care for the boat's name, "Osprey"!
