Random photos from my albums. A Day after returning home from the Island and after my being excused from grand jury duty, I had a very painful accident on the patio off from our kitchen.  It was dusk and I was coming back from the clothes line when I tripped over the iron rod that holds the bricks in place.

Evidently these were sea geese or Brants.         Low Tide at Wells Beach       SEARSPORT, MAINE Before getting to Wells, though, I decided to stop in Searsport to do some photographing of the old sea captain houses along Route one. I drive through Searsport everytime I return from Maine but don&
