What Maine means to me:

To me, Maine is home – and my family’s home. It’s the Skylight Drive-in in Madawaska, and Governor’s Restaurant in Orono. It’s the solitude of South Branch Pond in Baxter State Park, it’s the rocks meeting sand at Crescent Beach in Cape Elizabeth.It’s the bustle and churn of Portland’s Old Port, and it’s the grey steel of BIW’s destroyers.
