Let’s talk about the wonderful seafood Maine is known for. Maine is most famous for lobsters, harvesting the most lobsters in the United States. “Maine has 3,478 miles of coastline […]

(This is an article I wrote for South Island Living on a very special family!) Have you ever sent a child to summer camp and wished it was you going instead?
