Rick Charette! and Native American names! who doesn't remember having to sing the "16 counties in our state" song with those crazy Native American words! and let's not forget Whoopie Pies.


I know this is a really old post, but I couldn't resist replying. I am from maine and my grandmother makes the most rockin whoopie pies ever! I was born in Boothbay Harbor, grew up in western Maine (Denmark - anyone else?), went to college in Orono, met my to-be Hubby in Old Town, and his mom lives in Bar Harbor. Now we are in Buffalo, NY - we moved so that I could go to law school, now I'm an attorney and Evan is in law school. Maine winters are way worse, but at least you all see the sun every now and then!! Buffalo is, for the most part, grey from October to May! The cost of living here cant be beat - which will make our eventual move back to New England hard to swallow financially, but we know we cant stay away forever!

I miss the nature, which I have come to appreciate more and more over the years.

Anothah Mainah heah, deah.

trans: also from Maine....

 Wink  moved back from Vermont 9 years ago...how could I live in a state with no coastline??




Ayuh, ain't that the truth! Smiley  I can't imagine living somewhere with no beaches!  How do people in the Midwest do it?  I figure we have the perfect combination of ocean, lakes, mountains, woods, and other geographical features.  Plus we pretty much never have any disastrous weather.  I think New Englanders are God's chosen people. . .  Smiley

As for people talking about nothing to do-- well, the further No'th you go, the less there is!  Until you hit Canada of course.  But Southern Maine has all kinds of stuff going on.  I think when you're a young person, you think the social scene MUST be better ANYWHERE ELSE.  But Portland has all kinds of stuff!  I mean, we have an art museum for cripes sake!

RaeAmazon, I do believe we are on the same page...I lived in Portland for 2 years en route from Burlington, VT to MDI, Bar Harbor and it's Maine's Boston...  a bit of culture, a bit of edge, decent college population for boisterous progression, and the reality check of a working coastline.  Gritty's pub, the Bitter End...live music wherever anyone will listen...   The only thing we are missing is a subway.  If we get one, let's call it the "P!"

Wow! I had forgotten I even posted here.
Let's see, I'm still living in Wiscasset, although I really dislike the whole ghost town for most of the year, tourist trap/traffic central for the summer portion of how it is here.
I think it would be great to live in Portland. It seems like they have some good cultural resources: museums, libraries, ethnic food restaurants and shops, etc...
For now, though, it's Wiscasset for another year (I'm a teacher.)
To answer from like a year and a half ago, my friend who lives in Northport is Jennifer Howard.
Also, i noticed some Old Town references (I went to Orono and met my boyfriend who grew up in Old Town there.)
And the Unity reference, that was awesome. I went there for a year in 1998, and have some great memories associated with that place.

Figured I should post here. <3 I'm currently living in Orono while I attend UMaine. I'm originally from the Rockport/Camden area, though. I don't like Orono; it's a typical college town and it's fairly boring. There is little to do that doesn't involve drinking in some way. But mostly I miss being by the ocean. Oh well. Yay Maine!

Subdefective,
For what it's worth, if you haven't checked them out already, I really enjoyed the Ornamental Gardens and University Forest for being in nature and out of the college student stuff.
There's also MDI not too, too far from you. We used to go up for an afternoon on the weekend sometimes and hike or what have you. The Hudson museum is fun, and MCA has some decent cultural programming, and I have heard there's some University related art stuff going on in Bangor since I graduated (a museum?) I know Bangor's not huge, but it is pretty decent if you're looking for something like craft shops or coffee places. Even just for checking out the old houses.
Worst comes to worst, let' switch. I will give you the scenic ocean view and in exchange take the walkable neighborhoods and cultural offerings, which, for Maine, are pretty good!
