    Thunder Hole and Acadia National Park are awesome. Drop in and say hi to Steve King while you're there.

    And journeyman major leaguer Matt Stairs too! He coaches a high school hockey team there in the off season. He's a Canadian and a good guy.
  4. This explains a lot.

    Old Orchard Beach is the Provincetown of Maine. Did your parents take you to any piano bars at night? Ever wonder why there were only daddies on the beach during the day? Did your dad explain away the guys wearing banana-hammocks on the beach by telling you they were "French Canadian"?

    Lobsters, too. And nice beaches.

    And Evil Bastard, Ogunquit - not Old Orchard Beach - is Maine's answer to Provincetown. Get your gay resort towns right next time.

    My wife and I vacationed in Maine 10 years ago. We flew to Boston, rented a car and drove to a little town up the coast called Belfast. Nice little town, not too touristy. Ate lobster, went to bed. Next day we take kayaking lessons on the bay from a burned-out old hippie, an end-of-the-Earth kind of guy in and end-of-the-Earth kind of town. We then went looking for a restaurant to have dinner. Wife sees a place, says, "Let's eat there." I say, "I don't know ... there are no cars in the parking lot. Maybe the people around here know something we don't." Wife says, "Come on, let's eat there." So we did. And she was fine. I spent the rest of the night puking my guts out. On my birthday. I don't remember the name of the place, but don't eat there.
