Boothbay Harbor, Maine

Flew straight from a business trip to Maine because we were interviewing for a new Executive Coordinator for the conservation land trust I am treasurer for (Friends of Merrymeeting Bay).  Since I work virtual, there wasn't much difference staying in Maine for a couple more days in case we had more interviews after the weekend slate and I selected Boothbay Harbor because it was the ONLY place where I could find a hotel that had WIFI (since I would be working there Monday and Tuesday, though to be honest it had to be near Camden since I wanted to visit the State Park there Sunday afternoon).

Boothbay Harbor is a delightful village along the coast in one of Maine's many peninsulas.  This was one of the very first places I ever visited in Maine because I took a ferry from here for my initial visit to Monhegan Island way back in 1989 (I would subsequently escort my wife to Monhegan for our 'first date' and get married here).

Getting religion while walking home from Boothbay Harbor.
  Boothbay Harbor is the biggest establishment on the peninsula, though it is teeming with small villages inviting investigation, and labels iteself as the "soul of the coast" (I am uncertain why...but it is a cool place!).

The neatest aspect of this place is the footbridge spanning the harbor --- even though there isn\'t much on the side opposite of downtown it is awesome to stroll across the water and revel in all of the boats and lobster traps bobbing about.  As I hope to point out with a few reviews, it has other attractions as well!
