Cozy and CW--Thanks for your great information as I try to plan this trip to Maine (for a distant relation's wedding). It's very kind of you to help strangers on this site!
We're going to ME for a distant relation's wedding. Thu, Fri, and Sat are spoken for; Sun and most of Mon are mine to decide before we head to Boston for 2 days.
Due to the drive times and ferry times, it's looking like we'll have to save Monhegan for another time.
So, now I have to choose between BBH and New Harbor--(NH seems to have less desirable accommodations). Of the two places, which would you recommend? Is the Pemaquid lighthouse an absolute don't-miss?
Where to stay in BBH or NH (assuming I can find lodging at this late date)? What about Edgecomb (although, seeing as how we have NO ocean in Dallas, we'd like to stay on the ocean)?
Finally, do either of you know Van Reid (a fabulous author)? I have all of his books and want to throw myself prostrate before him to beg him to write another book. Or send word via someone who knows him. :)
Thanks again for all of your help and advice. It is truly appreciated.
