pf5I took a quick trip this past weekend from Kansas City to Portland, ME – to meet up with a friend to attend the 50th Annual WCSH Sidewalk Art Festival, one of my favorite annual events. It seemed like a good idea at the time – but traveling halfway across the country and back in two days is not ideal. But it was a great mini vacation and I packed a lot in, which I will share over the next few days.

First up, we started our glorious day in Portland at the great Farmers Market in Portland’s Deering Park. The market was in full late summer glory with the full abundance of the harvest. Of course I loved the whole scene and took a ton of pictures – a few of which I present in the gallery below – click on the thumbnail below to see the full picture.
