Thanksgiving week, November 1999

My visit to Portland Head Light, Maine.

During the week of Thanksgiving, 1999, I took a trip to Portland, Maine to get an overview of the area and see if I might be interested in moving to Maine.  I had taken many vacations in Maine and almost bought a restaurant in Farmington back in 1984.  Still having a desire to move to New England, I used this trip to meet with some hiring agencies and research the area.  I had some good meetings and decided I would move to Maine in 2000!  

While visiting, I toured the Portland Head Light.  I have included several pictures from my visit.  

And now, the planning begins.................
