American Locations 19 – Portland, Maine

This trip goes from Cincinnati, Ohio, to the Boston area, then up the New England coast all the way into Canada, then back through the Adirondacks to the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York.

We wound our way north to 9, then continued north on that, which kept us close to the ocean front. Another beautiful drive. Eventually we turned onto Hwy. 1 and drove on north into Portland.

There are some sandy beaches here.

All of them are not crowded.

But most of the coast is rocky.

Which I found out about the hard way.

We took a harbor cruise.

It took us past a lot of lighthouses.

Some of them looked like they’d been abandoned for a while.

There were also a lot of boats out in the harbor. Pleasure boats.

And working boats.

And big boats.

We also saw some wildlife.

We left Portland after our harbor cruise and found a private campground north of the city.
