Here's a little bit of the old and new of the city side by side. Straight ahead we have the entrance to the Gateway Garage, with parking facilities readily available to the right and left. Covering quite a wide stretch of the wall to the right is a large mural of a scene from yesteryear of Casco Bay with schooners dotting all around. I'm not a big mural guy, so I hope your not waiting for me to get too excited about it. It's rather bland anyway, with grays being the predominant tones. Let's keep it upbeat. Now, if you're headed for an 'island excursion' this summer and the Casco Bay Lines Terminal facility, next to all the ferries, is full at 10 AM, the Gateway would a secure backup plan. Well, at least I can dream of an island getaway this frozen morning. Dreaming is good!
