Recently, Gwen and I spent a few days visiting the coast of southern Maine. Sadly, it rained every day that we were there, but we still had a fun time.

"My wife and I make a yearly pilgrimage to the coast of Maine, and though it has become increasingly commercialized, during the off-season it is still a wondrous place to visit."
I hope you will visit Winter Harbor during the season AND off-season to discover a much less commercialized seaside village on the coast, where there is the Schoodic Point section of Acaida National Park. Some consider it the most beautiful part of the Park.
Check it out; Winter Harbor remains a largely undiscovered, undamaged gem.

OOPS! Of course I meant "Acadia" not Acaida.

Also, may I point out that Winter Harbor is a passenger ferry ride away from Bar Harbor (approx. 3 miles across Frenchman Bay) and that close to the Mt.Desert section of Acadia National Park, under an hour by car, so it offers the best of BOTH worlds.

If all you people love Maine so much how come you dont live there??Maine is a backwoods pit. Yeah, you gotta just love the black flies and all the other insects that attack you and I dont mean bugs. This thread must be put on by the tourist industry.

I can't speak for everyone but I am well established here and thats why I don't live there! I do spend quite a bit of my spare time in New Hampshire and Maine and just love it! Should we put a microscope on where you live or spend your spare time sue?

Wrong again! I paid cash for every personal ride I ever had! Funny you should mention that! I had a few full size sedans loaned to me during my employment over the years also! All my personal ones and there were a lot of them but five were automatic including the ones I drive now! Like it matters anyways!

Geezm, Sue, who put the black flies up your butt?
I live in Maine. Love it. You don't? Then stay away, Maine will be even nicer for your absence.
