Sep 2018 - Transatlantic Viking Route to New York - Day 10

Welcome to Portland USA

This morning the ship raised the stars and stripes as we enter the USA - which of course means we are joined by the Border Patrol for a passport and ESTA check 

The weather today is fantastic - warm blue skys, perfect for slowly approaching the city and staring with lust at the beautiful New England beach homes.

Portland Head Lighthouse   

Note to self - Shore Road is where I need to buy that summer property for retirement

Jacks favorite in every harbour - the humble tugs

 Portland Silver/Fore square - the city has a lovely New England charm to it - no huge skyscrapers

and some fantastic historic  properties well worth the short walk from the port 

This is Victoria Mansion. Also known as the Morse-Libby House, Victoria Mansion was built between 1858 and 1860 as a summer home for two people, Ruggles Sylvester Morse and his wife Olive.

Fortunately this late September it feels more like a warm English Summer day today
