When we pulled into Portland, Maine on a sunny Saturday morning, we weren’t too sure what to expect. All we knew was that 1. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow had a home there & 2. there was excellent lobster to be had.What we found was a quiet, pleasant (surprisingly hilly) place to walk around & explore for a few hours. After walking up to explore a church whose steeple we could see sticking up over the town, we wandered the narrow streets in the port area, just as stores were opening up for the day. We did find Mr. Longfellow’s house (that would be it below), as well as some excellent lobster rolls (they deserve their own post). It was a great morning of exploring!
