Another view of the typical afternoon in late summer along the Kennebec river in Augusta, Maine. The gulls hang around this inland waterway as if they were hanging around the ocean, which is twenty-to-thirty miles away. To make them feel at home, the river actually raises and falls from the tidal affects from the Gulf of Maine (the effect isn’t great and is negligible from this point north).
From a couple months ago during a walk along Mill Park on the Kennebec river in Augusta, Maine.
We had a chance to tour the Southeast Connecticut coast this past weekend. The sea birds are getting set for winter and the humans have done their preparations for the likely weather to come.
