So on the way home Tuesday I went poking around to see if there was anywhere down behind Mill Creek in SoPo. one might be able to get a decent shot at the western sky. Lo and behold, there’s this spiffy little corner under the SoPo end of the Casco Bay Bridge called Thomas Knight Park.
“In honor of Thomas E. Knight, master shipwright, who with Nathaniel Blanchard in 1850 established a major shipyard at the southeastern end of Portland Bridge” quoth the Big Brass Plaque.
It’s a pretty nice park for being under a bridge and all. Quiet, if rather windy, and would afford a good view of any ship coming through the bridge. It was a pretty nice sunset, too.
