Portland and Yarmouth - Various

I went to see my brother play today, and give him birthday cards. I decided to take some pictures around the area he was playing.

It was BEAUTIFUL out today!!!! Was expecting rain, like every other day this year so far. I WAS SHOCKED! Oh so happy.. I went for a drive. I didn't have a destination, just a few thoughts of where I could go. I ended up driving down route 88 (was actually going to head to Falmouth, but was in a turning only lane and decided to just follow where it took me). I saw a cemetery, so had to stop. It was really quite boring though. Everything about it was perfect. Not much character whatsoever. Took pictures anyway, then had some weird problem with my car, it went away though (THANK GOD), because I really wouldn't want to be stranded in a cemetery. That's what horror movies are made of right there. This place was called Pine Grove Cemetery (Rte 88 & Waites Landing Rd) I think in Falmouth.

I decided to keep on going down 88, toward Yarmouth I believe? Yeah, I don't know that area at all. Ended up driving very far, and decided to take a right and see where it brought me (right next to a cemetery I took a right haha). Honestly, I was hoping there would be an entrance to this one, because it looked more interesting, but anyway.. I kept driving, because there wasn't, and I find signs "Sunset Point" that way, and "Cousin's Island" that way. I go to Cousin's Island, at the same moment thinking that Sunset Point sounds better, but I go anyway. End up stopping by Cousin's Island beach, and taking some pictures. It's a really nice little beach actually! A lot of fishing going on there.

I continue to explore the island. I don't explore much though, the two directions I try end up being dead-ends. One goes to some weird plant that requires security access. The other is private and for residents only. Spooky little island!

I leave there, and try to find what this "Sunset Point" is. I can't find it, so I leave. That's pretty much my journey, and I head home.
