Darrell is scheduled to teach a workshop in Rochester NY, so we decided to make a short vacation of it and tour the Northeast to see the fall colors.  
We left SeaTac early Monday morning, flew into Newark, NJ, where we laid over for our short hop to Portland Maine.  This is the first time either of us had been in NJ.

We had several hours to wait in very small Terminal A, so we ate lunch and I sketched for a while.

Pen and watercolor sketch.

The fall colors we came to see!

The first bird I was in Maine, in the airport.

We picked up our rental car and headed to our hotel, La Quinta in Portland.  The gals that checked us in recommended a few restaurants and we headed out for dinner.  After walking around a bit we settled on Ri Ra, an Irish pub on Commercial Street, next to the water.  Darrell had Bangers and Mash, I had GF Fish and Chips.
