We started and ended the Portland component of our vacation at a beach. On the way out of town we had a delicious breakfast at Scratch Baking Company in South Portland, and then walked around Crescent Beach for about an hour.
Seaweed elegantly streaked across the sand.
I couldn't tell if it was man-made or occurring naturally, but there was a crazy stream in the middle of the beach, winding its way around,
Further down the beach were (yes) more rocks. This boy's mother was calling to him. I think he was carrying a buoy.
Dave took a couple of nice shots of this part of the beach too. (Not that he didn't take some nice ones of the rest of the beach as well.)
