Summer in Maine, finally! Carpe diem


Now this is Maine summer weather: sunny, breezy, dry, temps in the 70s. Ahhh, so sweet and as it’s late August, so fleeting. So seize it. Make the most of the next few predicted-to-be-perfect days. Put off that back-to-school shopping expedition and instead:

—While away the day at the beach or lake

—Pack a picnic. Hike a mountain.

—Slip away for a few days in the Rangeley Lakes, up at Moosehead or way Down East, perhaps in Lubec or Eastport.

—Hop a ferry to Peaks, Vinalhaven, North Haven or Monhegan and explore an island.

—Spend a few days totally disconnected at a Maine sporting camp.

But go, just go. Get outside and revel in the best Maine offers. Now. Don’t put it off. Because you know what this cool breeze means, don’t you? Yup, winter’s coming.
