Maine Part 2

I've got many more new pictures below, but first I thought I'd finish off the rest of the weekends events...

We got off the water that evening, and headed out to explore some more of the city. Portland, ME is by far one of the most amazing cities I've even been in. To start, I don't get super aprehensive about driving in it, or walking in it. It's a city by the sea (Casco Bay), so the salt water can be smelled in much of the city. It's a small city, so it's possible to walk most of the places of interest with parking in one or two spots...

ALSO - there's tons of sea food...and cheap. This past weekend, soft shell lobsters were $4.99/lb. Go check out the local grocery store to get YOUR current market price...

Anyways, we headed into town for a tremendous dinner and tour...realizing that the in the morning we were leaving for home...leaving a town we both loved...

None the less, we enjoyed the night with some great company, great scotch, and great stories...

Amy will have a post coming soon with the food and places we saw out on the town, and I shall pass along...

We left Saturday morning to hit a traditional halloween party back home in CT...





Here's the rest of the Important Fish Pictures...


Greg caught a hook set...


Juneau wanted to see/taste...


Seriously...Juneau had to be held away from every fish...and many were lost because of a dog lunge...however he was a blast to have around...



Alas...Large brookies, deep spawning colors...

A special thanks to Greg for the hospitality, as well as MAINE RIVER GUIDES. I can't even begin to describe some of the pictures he showed me from this past summer's guiding trips. AMAZING Salmon, Brook Trout, Lake Trout, Bass...you name it...
