Where in Maine
June 2015

Each month, Down East editors select our favorite response to “Where in Maine?” Here is our favorite letter from June.


In 1969, my grandfather took me here for the first time. In 1983, my wife-to-be put her foot in the Atlantic Ocean here for the first time. We have made it a tradition to take a family picture on the stone ledge near the entrance with Two Lights in the background. In 2011, my son took his newlywed wife here to eat, and in the very near future, I will bring my two grandchildren here to eat their very first whoopie pies. One of my most favorite places in the world: The Lobster Shack at Two Lights in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.
