"At a classic lobster shack, when the sun hits baywater and a lobster fleet or a schooner bobs offshore, generations of summer visitors sit there with you, taking it all in. Today’s Maine bows to none when it comes to life’s finer pleasures. Still, it’s Homer’s side of things–that collision of land and sea–that makes Maine not just a nice place but an invigorating land of mind and spirit."
