View of Portland from Back Cove at Low Tide

Yesterday, I took a walk along the Back Cove shoreline in Portland. The bite of the sea air and changing leaves left me wondering where the summer had gone. It’s not officially fall, but it sure feels like it. The mornings are chilly, the afternoons breezy, and the nights cold. I could sense the onset of fall and the coming of winter. It left me a bit depressed thinking of the long long winter.

Even so, fall is a wonderful time to be in Portland. The tourists have left, the days are sunny, and the mosquitoes are hibernating. Kayaking is especially good this time of year. I enjoy the Scarborough Audubon Marsh where the clouds and water magically come together.
