A blanket of fog covered Back Cove yesterday afternoon. Looks like it's much the same this morning.

Port Co.

A look towards the sprawling Portland Company Complex between Fore Street and the waterfront. Occasionally I like to share these less-interesting photos in order to simply document the way things are at the moment. And it sets me up to do an "after" photo from this spot in a few years when it looks different.

What's New on Maine Wharf

The new building on Maine Wharf is starting to come to life. The first floor on the side closest to Commercial Street will be the new home of Casco Bay Artisans, while the other end will be occupied by a new upscale seafood restaurant named Scales. A new organization/museum/exhibit space, the Portland Science Center, will occupy some of the upper floors.
