A 3 hour cruise... but Gilligan was nowhere to seen.
Part of my cruise on Casco Bay yesterday included a stop on Peaks Island. It's actually a neighborhood of Portland, even though it's 3 miles away from downtown. It is the most populated island in Casco Bay with approximately 843 year round residents. Summer weekends can find it exploding to over 6,000. Summers during the 19th Century, it took on the banner of the "Coney Island of Maine" with all the hotels, theaters, homes and even an amusement park. The lobster boat, the Carol May, has been grounded here for sometime, in the sand just a short walk from the island dock. I wonder what the plans are for her? I wonder a lot!
