More Vacation Photos

Going through the 200 or so vacation photos - it's hard to choose just a few! A couple of my favorites from Maine and Boston:

This one was shot on a beach south of Portland. I'm going to enlarge & frame it!

The Portland Head Lighthouse. Funny: the foghorn was going off right next to us. I didn't hear or feel a thing.

The Portland Head Lighthouse, from another perspective.

I loved the mix of old & new in Boston. The old buildings look right at home -- it's the sparkly new ones that look out of place.

I learned a lot about Boston's history on my trolley tour (I would have done the walking tours but I only had about 6 hours!) For instance, there are cemeteries in the midst of the city that date back to the 1600s and 1700s. Very cool -- and yes, I know, I am morbid.

Trinity Church, dwarfed by the John Hancock Tower. This church was gorgeous! I wish I'd had time to go inside.

That's all folks. I highly recommend going to Boston to do some sightseeing if you ever get the opportunity. I'm glad I did it.
