Sometimes I get a bit frustrated when I don’t post here as soon as I have some interesting (to me) photographs. / We were up in Maine for Thanksgiving at my brother and sister-in-law’s house.  They live near to Higgins Beach in Scarborough, ME and on Thursday the ocean was really kickin’.  I went for three separate walks to the beach the next day and each one was interesting in its own way.  The surf was up (especially by East Coast standards) and at one point there were at least 40 surfers out.

On the morning walk I noticed that tons of sea creatures were washed way up on the beach, including this guy.  Very alive and, I hope, happy to be put back into the ocean.  Would have made a nice little lunch though.

On our way home on Saturday, I finally stopped to take a shot of this structure on Route 1 in Scarborough.  I liked the light, and it is nice to see how helpful the owners are in identifying just what this thing is.

Further (farther?) down Route 1 is Bob’s Clam Hut in Kittery and since Peter was with us it seemed a nice time to stop in for a bite.  As usual, amazing fried clams.

Next stop was in Boston for our annual walk around the outside of Fenway Park.  So sweet to have the 2013 World Series banner hanging.

And I have always liked this statue, especially Dom DiMaggio’s specs. / We ended the Boston leg of the trip with a stop at the Blue Ribbon.  For Peter, this day was a triple play; clams, Fenway, and Blue Ribbon.  He was a very happy boy.

And finally, there is this.  Image-wise it is kind of an orphan here, but I love the floating cone in the middle.  I spotted this on a walk with Pete yesterday afternoon. / I take him to the train in New Haven tomorrow, and as usual, it will be difficult to say goodbye.  Cris and I have had so much fun being with him for the past few weeks.
