It's the state motto and this is just one reason why.....
I love this image. It's so different from the kayaking we do here in Colorado. It looks like a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.
Ayuh, yesterday was some lovely. We wound up on the deck of the Dip Net in Port Clyde eating crab rolls and soaking up some sun while watching the fleet unload the day's bug haul. Days like that make one feel glad to be alive, alright.Of course, my Portland born and raised man of the cloth father-in-law has always said the slogan should be "Maine- The Way Life Never Was". I'm just hoping you send some of that York County juju north so that more folks get to kayak and less have scrape rust off boats like the Elizabeth Ann in your photo!
The Dip Net? My favorite restaurant in my favorite town. I agree totally on the York County juju needing to spread its way through the state. I'm very aware that our way of life is not representative of 95%(?) of the way of life of the rest of the state. I find that the state's economic woes are so complex and deeply seated that I puzzle to know what to do. For now, I just keep paying the tax man, buying as much Made in Maine as I can and hoping that I can figure a small way to help solve that. While I might sound a little pollyannish, I ADORE this state (will not ever live anywhere else, god willing) and I want to see it healthy and thriving.
Me. There. Now.
