Snapshot Summary: Scenes from a Maine Island

While growing up on an island off the coast of Maine I never thought it was unique, but as I've gotten older and lived in different places I've been able to see that it IS different. The island is about 28 square miles, containing 5 different little towns with 2400 year-round residents. Most families are lobstering or fishing families with others have businesses like small convenience stores, carpentry or mechanics as well as teachers. It's definitely a place where everyone knows your name!

  2. I grew up in Maine and I think it's VERY COOL (oh, wait, that should be "wicked cool!") that you grew up on an island! :-) Fun! I love the ocean but never seem to get there often enough.

    We live near the water too - Victoria, BC - and I love the ocean.
