Yay!  I just joined.  I'm going to remember to keep it low stress, just a dash of anxiety here and there and I should be good hehe.  I've got some great creative ideas but I'll wait to have a partner to finalize them.  Thanks for a great, low stress swap, Oneredboot.

The "summer complaints"! That's what we call summer people here. But honestly, Boothbay tourism industry is hurting, and gas being possibly $4 a gallon is putting a bit of fear in every shop owner's heart!

As far as Maine places to come too with all the things mention below... I second all the previously mentioned suggestions. Camdem/Rockport would be lovely, I think! It's a little tricky north of Portland to find good vegetarian places to eat... almost impossible to get a veggie meal here in Boothbay unless you phone ahead and ask them if they can make something special. I keep meaning to get a small little vegetarian guide to Boothbay together for the Tourist Info Center. I, personally, love Damariscotta as a town, and Bath.... but walking to a beach is a little tricky. Bath is right on the water though.... and they have great cafes, and a nice little health food store.

Anyway... my 2 cents. : ) You can always come up for a visit and go couchsurfing to check out all the towns.... there are couchsurfing hosts up and down the coast. (www.couchsurfing.co m) It's my favorite way to see a place. Smiley

Wow!  So many Maine connections!  Mr. Boot and I often talk about finding an ideal community where we can go for a few months every summer, and Maine always seems like it would be perfect.  We want to be somewhere that has a vegetarian or health food restaurant, a bookstore, and water (any kind--lake, sea, whatever) within walking or biking distance--and of course a farmer's market would be perfect!  I'm sure all of you who actually live there hate all those summer people!  Smiley

I spent my 4 1/2 years of college in Savannah, which is a huge tourist town. Because of the nice weather, it has tourists virtually year-round. Ugh, it was awful! All of SCAD's school buildings are in the downtown historic district, so it was really common to be late for class because you got stuck behind a slow tour bus or a horse-drawn carriage Roll Eyes Savannah also has the 2nd largest St. Patty's Day party in the U.S....I would just drive back home for that entire week every year because it was just absolute pandemonium. So yeah, I feel sorry for you folks living in tourist towns Smiley

Oneredboot, if you want a place by the water, and don't mind some urban blight, and the possibility of being shot...you could get a place here in Detroit!  There are lots of burnt out buildings to scavenge through for craft supplies....

wow, that's an inviting picture you've painted!  it sounds a little too similar to where I live now--lovely high-crime Durham, NC, experiencing its own version of small-city urban blight...

hmmm, detroit or Damariscotta, Maine?  What a choice!  Smiley

I love Damariscotta . . . we have actually discussed moving there although it is only 30 minutes away now.  The veggie thing is very difficult.  I went from veggie to vegan to now I eat some poultry and from farmers I know and respect.  The going joke in my family was when were eating out don't bother to ask me where to go because everywhere has a salad and that was pretty much all I ate out for years. 

I can't wait for partners so I can start crafting!!!

Around here you can't even order a salad most places, because they all have chicken and bacon, or something like that on them.

I feel almost a little stalkery because a lot of you were in the beautiful use swap.  Smiley  But I just sent in my PM for this, I love walking to my local farmer's market and lugging my market goodies back up the hill on the bus (me = lazy).  It also gives me an excuse to window-shop in all the nifty stores surrounding the market.  yay!  And usually includes a stop at the library to pick up whatever's waiting for me there.

camelama, there's no shame in stalking the Beautiful Use ladies.  That's what I'm doing here, too!  Though I'm not allowing myself to sign up 'til I get oneredboot's package in the g-darn mail.
