Portland Waterfront

Warmer afternoons bring a bustling to Commercial Street in Portland. Winterized boats begin preperations to launch, bait buckets line the wharfs, and the hollering of lobsterman are audible from the sidewalks. The sun begins to beat down on our shoulders as this old town comes to life. As tides rise, your gaze turns to the brilliant sparkle of summer, that has been so missed, glinting on the ocean’s surface. We walk the wharfs and downtown Portland before driving out to Portland Head Light. As tourists begin flooding in, it’ll be nice to remember these quiet and private moments where silence and peacefullnes of the coast was soaked up.
