Outstanding! When driving up from Boston we’ll motor through Lincoln County for awhile via route 1 on the way to the house.
Chris mentions in his above post the “counterpoint” of the Maine coast with that of the Rocky Mountains. We agree and consider ourselves fortunate to enjoy that contrast regularly. And I would think you find the Milano to Lincoln County ME a bit of a contrast
Periodic changes of views are always good for the psyche. Have a great trip! We’d look forward to a TR…
We're in East Boothbay, don't know if you know the area. Right at the tip, called Ocean Point. My family's been summering there since before I was born, and it's one of the two places in the world where I feel "at home" (the other is Madesimo).
Have a great summah!
Indeed. I for some reason am not able to view photos here right now (anyone else having that problem?).
Don't know where Peaks Island is, Lars, but of course Boothbay Harbor (or "the hahbah" as it's known in our parts) is the big metropolis of the situation. I, in fact, have bought my own place in East Boothbay, kind of to give the folks an extra space for guests, in addition to a private place for my little family when we visit. Always wondered what I'd do ski-wise if I lived up there fulltime, guess I'd be trucking up to Sugahloaf.
Interesting how I have found many Epic folks have significant ties to ME. All the finest skiers I believe.
While we anchor near Eggemoggin Reach, regardless, wherever you touch the coast all views are tantalizing.
Some additional views near about the Reach:
Yup…summah’s on Maine water & winter’s on CO snow…that’s just fine.

David…I knocked on your door and where are you? France?? Skiing???
I just read your TR…Fantastic!
Don’t let those pics fool you Steve…it was [and has been till recent as you know] rainy and cool up there. We kept an eye on channel 5 weather finding those clear days but it looked like everything that made CO’s ‘09 June the wettest on record had found its way to ME.
Ayuh, I grew up with one foot in Maine and one in New Hapstah. I'll be takin' the missus to Maine to see the foliage this fall. Puttin' in at Baath, takin' the inland route to Boothbay Hahbah, then Damariscove Island and on to Po'tland.
We been to tha coast the last 3 summahs sailing on my 21' sloop. First yeah was Casco Bay (tha's where Peaks Island is, by the way), the next was Bah Ha'bah ta Camden. Last yea' was Sou' Freepo't up ta Cape Small then back to Po'tland.
Two weeks on the ocean and the summah on Lake Dillon makes for a fine yea' o' sailin'.
Like the problem I have with my mild dyslexia while reading Shakespeare…I have a pretty good understanding but it takes me awhile to capture it correctly
