Marshall Island

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.

[dropcap letter=”N”]o 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
