Be prepared to be seduced, Maine is like that.
Without flash, spin, arm twisting, she is drop dead gorgeous. She tugs at your heart strings. One by one grabbing a handful with a playful way of gaining your undivided attention. And you don't mind in the least.
The space of Maine and being sparsely populated is part of it.
So is the attitude of be a good steward. Don't mess up the surroundings that you pass on to the next generation of loved ones.
And keep it simple, make it about Maine family, community rings loud and clear too.
The eye candy of Maine... the small towns and back woods, waterfront and friendly people. Their animals, community events covered in a one frame at a time capture. Those images of Maine speak volumes and say it all.
You come to Maine for all she is that excites and the long list of what she does not have.
Traffic, crime, noise and pollution are not the calling cards that attract anyone to Maine. Those and more elements of urban areas are why folks plan and scheme to get here as often as they can.
For vacations first, then the actual full or part time move, relocation to Maine. To settle down, relax and catch their breath. Then pitch in and become a part of the social fabric. To contribute and gain the rich satisfactoin of being part of Maine local community events.
