OUR FAVORITE LETTER
Where in Maine?
Photographed by Bridget Besaw
Each month, Down East editors select our favorite response to “Where in Maine?” Here is our favorite letter from July’s photo of Marshall Island.
No question, just from picture: Marshall Island. We are boaters from Boothbay who cruise Downeast every summer, and Marshall is a must-stop. Mostly, we have the island to ourselves. The hikes, the beaches, the meadow on the northeast corner — all wondrous. The airstrip is still there, a bit weird in the midst of all the fabulous nature, but a reminder of what might have been. We are so fortunate the island has been preserved and that Maine Coast Heritage Trust maintains the trails for all to enjoy. — Elsie Freeman and Kip Neale, Trevett, Maine
