Our last few weeks here in Maine have been pretty crazy - thus the sporadic blog posts...that will all be changing as soon as we get to Charleston!! (7 days...eek!) To take a mini break from the craziness of packing I hitched a ride with Dave on his inspection route Saturday to Peaks Island.
We had to leave Bangor at 4am, (not my favorite part of joining him) in order to make it to the 630 ferry, so we were up veerrryyyy early. By the time we got into Portland the sky was just barely starting to get light.
The sky this early in the morning is gorgeous - and it was actually unseasonably warm (35ish) so I braved the outside deck to grab some shots of the harbor as we cruised out.
The ferry ride to the island is only about 15 minutes long, and as soon as we get to the dock we head off on our 1/2 mile hike to his property. It's honestly just enough time to get sleepy and warm - and then get tossed into the cold. :)
While he inspects (like usual) I just get to hang out and take pictures of pretty stuff - which is actually rather hard to do in the middle of an island (not the cute part) in the middle of winter. Here's what I got:
On the walk back we were behind a very interesting lady (I tried to get a photo but couldn't quite get one clearly) who kept changing directions...we weren't really sure if she was confused, drunk, lost, or all three! Entertainment at 630 in the morning - can't beat it!
We beat the ferry back to the dock by about 45 minutes, so we snuck into our favorite cafe for a breakfast sandwich and coffee. While we were there we made friends with the cutest residents of Peaks!
These pups were so cute!! Also, they wouldn't leave us alone! Haha. Their owner was reading a paper in the corner so apparently they were feeling a little attention-deprived.
