PHOTOS! Inaugural Portland Witches Ride on Halloween

++ Get out (but, like, not too far). We all love and appreciate the positive effects of the Maine outdoors. Hopefully we’ll be back to all kinds of adventuring soon. But for now, press pause. The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry has some great advice: stay close to home, steer clear of busy locations, keep your distance (and stick to walking/hiking with folks from your household). ++

PHOTOS! Inaugural Portland Witches Ride on Halloween

Broomsticks got the afternoon off during the inaugural Witches Ride in Portland on Halloween day. The informal group ride included a cruise around Back Cove and through the Old Port, plus a stop at Vena’s Fizz House on Fore Street for ‘I’m Melting’ witch cocktails. Spells were cast. Cackles echoed through the streets. And this will mark the start of an annual tradition!

I don't like "exercise" any more than you do. But you know what I do like? Paddleboarding with a friend all afternoon (and then sitting in the grass to drink chardonnay). Bike rides and nachos, hikes, yoga classes held in breweries, group paddles to Fort Gorges, you get the idea. Because Maine is my gym.
