On August 19 my brother Stephen finally came to visit me in Maine, along with my Mom and his granddaughter and my niece, Leeloo. None of them had been to my new home yet and so after showing them around on the first day, I took them to visit Fort Popham State Historic Site in Phippsburg the next day. Since Mom needs to use her walker now it was an easy place to take them. The fort had a little of something for all of us, including water, history and birds! Here are a few pictures from that day.
(We were both thinking that our youngest brother would like this place!)
I didn’t see a lot of birds here, but I did see a few, as well as a seal out in the water. Fort Popham is where the Kennebec flows out to the sea and so there is a mixture of fresh and salt water. It was a lovely afternoon and I was happy to share it with my family.
