Peaks Island, Maine: A Day Trip

Last week we spent a day on Peaks Island.
We took a short ferry ride from Portland,
then rented bikes
and rode them around the island
stopping a lot to take in the views and click some pictures.
We got off our bikes to explore Battery Steele
a World War II military fortification built on Peaks Island
to protect Portland harbor.
Around the battery we got stuck in the mud 
and Rob had to carry the girls' bikes across a large pool of water.
I helped by snapping a picture of it ;)
We rewarded ourselves with ice cream cones 
and a short rest on the beach while we waited for the ferry to take us back across the harbor.
