“Then followed that beautiful season… Summer….
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Maine poet
Were I forced to choose either one or the other for the rest of my life, I honestly don’t know which one I would pick. Hawaii is fabulous; Maine, glorious. Each different, but each a part of my soul. Would I choose the sands of Lanikai, or Goose Rocks Beach? Would I enjoy plate lunch and ahi poke, or lobster rolls, steamers and corn on the cob with butter?
If you haven’t been to either state, you must. They are both unique, fantastic–and, for this misplaced Mainah kama’aina, about as far apart as you can get and still be in the United States.
Enjoy a couple more sights of Kennebunkport, on the southern coast of Maine.
