Portland, Maine (and the Coast)


One of the luxuries of living in the Northeast is the close proximity of so many states and their varying landscapes. Boston has its many beauties, but there are so many nearby areas with gorgeous views. Despite only being a couple hours drive away, a place like Portland, Maine looks like an entirely different region of the country.

Joining a friend I hadn’t seen in over a decade, I finally visited Portland and had an opportunity to see a city and coastline that numerous acquaintances have called one of their favorites in the country. Despite the rain and overcast skies, the trip did not disappoint. As usual, I prefer to let pictures tell the story, so I hope you enjoy a brief visual tour through Maine. And, of course, you can always follow me on Instagram.
