My Best Shot

Child's play on a summer day in Maine

November 04, 2007

In August, my family and I traveled to Maine, the state where I grew up, to visit the home of a friend who lives on Long Island, one of a series of islands near Portland in Casco Bay. At high tide, it is fun to jump from the upper part of this dock into the frigid waters. This is a picture of my daughter Kelsey jumping in. In the background is Hope Island, and beyond that Cliff Island, and the water is Luckse Sound. I thought this picture captured the essence of what I remember summers to be.
