Spent part of yesterday on Casco Bay. We took the car ferry across to Peaks Island in the late afternoon. The trip to Portland's largest, inhabited island is but 15 minutes. Elenka has a friend who had an opening at a gallery out there. She's a welder and has a show featuring birds she has crafted. I enjoyed taking a look at her work. You know I'm a bird lover. Later, while awaiting a boat back to the mainland, we stopped at The Inn On Peaks Island for a couple of drinks and snacks. We sat on the front deck, overlooking the dock and the city off in the distance, that was bathed in the dipping evening sun. The return trip was perfect heading right towards that setting sun. I stayed out on the deck the the entire passage. A warm summer breeze was my companion. Nights like this are what draw visitors to our state. Forget about our winters. It was a perfect summer night.
