Sunrise in Portland | Seaside Docks | Summer Photos

Being self-diagnosed with borderline ADD, I constantly attempt to pack my weekends with new sights and activities. Although most define adventure to be far from home, staying local isn’t something to turn your nose up at. Something new lies around every corner here in Portland.


We set out for a marsh hike along the coast of Maine. The morning sun shined upon the still bodies of water and the tall sea grass. The scent of the marsh infiltrates your nose with the scent of mud and sea salt. Today feels particularly warm considering that last week gave us nothing but rain.



The docks seem next door to downtown. Where it blends cannot be determined.
