With the snow gone (well almost), i've resorted to other adventures. Took a trip out to Fort Gorges, which is located just off the coast Of Portland in Casca Bay (on an island of course). It's and old defense structure built in 1865 complete with turrent (sp?) and cannon bays.
Here it is off the East End of Portland.
We took a canoe, which normally i wouldn't reccomend seeing as you must pass through a major shipping channel. However, the day was perfect the wind was low and the traffic was very light.
Inside, this wall faces offshore (notice the cannon bays)
It is pretty creepy in parts...First floor cannon bays,
Scotia Prince of to Yarmouth Nova Scotia...
Pooch and Portland
Sundown over Portland
Really a neat piece of history and certaily could use some restoration but and interesting place none-the-less.
