MAINE: my final frontier. These are the voyages of the Scooter Vespa 250 i.e. Super. Its continuing mission - to explore America's most heavily forested state - to roam the vast coastline, numberless lakes, and mighty mountains. To boldly go where no scooter has gone before!

It won't be long now

Although the weather is warmer, the days longer, the rides less bracing, it won't be spring until the green begins to appear.

This photo was taken from nearly the same spot as the current header pic. But there's no sense of romance in early March here at Higgin's Beach in Scarborough, Maine.

And there is still some snow left in southern Maine - but I'm not complaining about this little pile!

The sea isn't inviting in March, but there is always beauty in the rugged coast.

The tidal flats on Prout's Neck lack the color that's just around the corner in April.

No one walked this beach today.

Next time I ride out here, the beaches will be full and the pines won't be the only tree with "foliage." 


  1. There's nothing like sunlight on water. Just beautiful, Tom.

    1. Thank you, Martha. We've got plenty of water in these parts, and the prediction of a sunny spring. With those ingredients, I expect to post many more sunlit water pics.


  2. I really like the last photo, it reminds me of an oriental painting.
