Portland, Maine Flea-For-All

Remember when I mentioned the Flea-For-All opening in Portland?  Well, on opening day at 10am sharp I was there checking things out!  There were two floors of vendors set up {I hear they’ll be adding more and rotating the line-up} and lots of people milling about. Very exciting! Jewelry, vintage clothing, old dishes & mugs, new lamps with funky designs, handmade pottery, aprons, and owl pillows. There were bicycles, records, and some furniture in the mix, too.

Everything was nicely edited. The highlight was Ziggy the Talking Clown!  {It reminded me of the movie Big!}

The entire weekend was gorgeous and sun-filled. I started it by taking a walk around Mackworth Island with a friend:

Then a hike on Bradbury Mountain with another friend where some birders spotted an Eagle:

That tiny dot at the top of the photo is the Eagle. The sun was glaring down and I couldn’t see a thing so I literally pointed my phone camera in that direction and got what I could! Yesterday at my in-law’s house a mature Eagle took a break on the rocks long enough so we got a good look at just how large of a bird they are when they aren’t soaring up above.  I guess over the weekend they were out cruising the skies while most of us were out combing the land, enjoying the weather.

What were you up to over the weekend?
