Last summer, Tami, David and the kids escaped for the day to one of their very favorite places, the Portland Headlight in Fort Williams Park. There’s so much room to run around there with wide open fields made just to play catch or fly a kite. Tami says the views of the ocean really help her to relax.
There’s a hiking path winding along the rocky coastline. There are several geocaches including the first in the state of Maine. They had a lot of fun doing a multi-stage cache that took them all around the park looking for clues.

You can take tours of the Lighthouse for a fee . . . climb on the abandoned fort on the other side of the park or stick your feet in the ocean.
And you know what? After they hung out there, they went to the Old Port and took a ferry ride around Portland Harbor and THEEEEEEN, they went to dinner after that!
Do you think they asked me?? Nooooooo.
Oh well. I suppose my antlers would have taken up the whole back seat anyway!
