September 23, 2013  Day 124  Casco Bay
Portland Yacht Services
Portland, Maine

Approaching the Portland waterfront
We had another short trip today and were in Portland by 10:15.   We are at Portland Yacht Services, which is a marina near downtown.  There are several marinas that dot the waterfront and a large dock for the cruise ships. The Carnival Glory was here when we arrived (we saw it in Halifax) and left after dinner.

Guess what is displayed on top of this building!
There is a narrow gauge railroad museum next to our marina and Bill toured it this afternoon.  After lunch we walked downtown and browsed through some of the shops. On the away back we stopped at another marina to greet Richard and Shannon who were just arriving on Esmeralda. We visited for a while and then returned to our boat.  (Joyce is trying to get most of the laundry done!)
The Narrow Gauge Railroad

We had dinner on board and then watched television.  We plan to go to (or near) Portsmouth, NH tomorrow, which will be a full day of travel.
