Love me some Maine. Spent some time over the years in the Portland area and a little north of there. Thanks for the pics.

I usually get up there once a year to go canoeing or snowmobiling on the Allagash. It's truly refreshing to get so far from civilization sometimes.

These pics are from where I lived in the 60s and 70s, which is just south of Bath, Me. The Allagash is a true wilderness.

Maine is a nice state especially the coastline, I haven't been there too many times but I like it.

We were at a softball tournament up in the Lakes Region of NH, not far from Fryeburg ME, for most of last weekend...our daughter was playing.
Driving up for one game, we saw a bear on the shoulder of the road about half a mile from the field...it was good sized, maybe not fully grown but not a cub by a long shot. It ran up someone's driveway as we got closer, and then we saw a guy running towards it like mad from a nearby house setting up his camera phone as he went...guess we should have been scared for the guy, but we all cracked up at the sight of a guy so desperate to get a photo of a bear in the wild that he was putting himself in some degree of danger. The bears up there are generally not aggressive, but I still wouldn't recommend running full speed towards one...my wife and daughter walked home to our ski condo from dinner one night few years ago and found a bear hanging around our front door when they stepped out of the woods. My wife called the police and the bear was gone when they came a few minutes later, the officer told my wife she was smart to get help instead of trying to shoo the bear themselves or take some closeup pics are so many people would do instead.

Those pics remind me of the trip my family and I took to Bailey/Orr's Island a number of years ago. Man, the lobster was just amazing.. and every day. Nice pics.

Iíve heard that lobster is reasonably priced there. Is it true?

I don't eat shell fish so never priced it.
