Summer 2009, Part 3

Portland Head Light

Though the unsettled weather pattern doesn’t seem to have departed completely, today was almost enough to make you forget how dismal it has been for the last two, three weeks or more with little relief.  Fort Williams Park was crawling with people today; everyone, it seemed, happy to be out and about in the sunshine.  Even with all the visitors enjoying the view of Portland Head Light, Casco Bay and its islands, it was a great opportunity to break out the camera, enjoy the sights, and forget that this is the last day of vacation (for now, anyway).

It also occurred to me that this summer will likely be the last (maybe next to last) that we spend as a family of five.  In the years to come there will be fewer opportunities to do things like this as a unit, without one or more of the girls somewhere else, or with significant others and, eventually, children.  Those times will be good, too, of course, but different.
