    Fort Point, about 20 miles from home by car, about a mile and a half from home as the crow flies.....we live on the opposite side of the Penobscot Bay/River from this park....this was yesterday, a bit hazy but glorious none the less!

    Bee-U-tiful photos Care4All!

    I'll be heading up to your state in August with my family. We'll be staying on Lake Pemaquid up in Damariscotta. Lovely country up in Maine. Just a beautiful state!
