A quick ride north from Portland is this wonderful state park with over 200 acres of prime hiking with gorgeous coastal views of Casco Bay, a salt marsh estuary where you can dig for clams, and wildlife galore. We were psyched to see a young family of Osprey perched in their nest waiting for food as mom flew over with her 6 foot wing span. What beautiful birds they are… I just can’t wait to see a Bald Eagle one day! We managed to do the long route (about a 2 hour hike) around the park with Leo in his back pack. He’s getting to be one heavy guy and would recommend this sort of activity to anyone looking to shed a couple pounds. After a run around a small secluded beach and a hello the the friendly squirrels we headed home.
