Mackworht Island, Maine

Today was a perfect 10 weather wise. No humidity! It sure makes a difference when the humidity is low - It was about 81 degrees and I didn't mind it at all. It was sunny and breezy, too. Just beautiful.

Kevin and I decided to go exploring. We went to Mackworth Island, Maine, right off of Portland. There is a causeway out to the island so you can drive there.

When we arrived the friendly fellow (Ron) at the gatehouse said we were in luck - there were only three parking spaces left. So we parked and then started off on the path around the island. There are several places where you can go down to the shore. At some points it was a steep drop down to the water.

We were surprised at how few pine trees there were especially on the edge of the island. The island is truly lush with trees though. There is also a school for the deaf and hearing impaired on the island.

Below are my photos from today's jaunt.
