When I was in Maine two weekends ago I took a pit-stop in Portland on my way home. I just wanted to take a glimpse at it during it’s winter season– it’s deserted streets, snowy sidewalks, and the boats all docked for the winter months. If I didn’t live in Boston, I think I would very much like to live here. It’s quaint and filled with restaurants and shops, many of which are just perfect for popping into and having a look around. But most of all, I love how it’s right by the sea.

Salty air and bright afternoon sunshine.

That Portland is a special place.


  1. Oh, I love this little city! My husband and I initially thought about moving here, but settled on the Boston area instead. Good thing it’s close enough for frequent visits!

  2. Girl, I am so glad you are learning how to use that camera, because these are gorgeous.

    This also sounds like a place I’d like to live. I love listening to “Far Away” (yay…more Ingrid!) and imagining I live on the white cliffs of Dover.

  3. such great photos, I really want to get there and see the town- I’ve heard such good things!!

  4. it looks very new england, naturally. love your pictures.
