There is definitely something for everyone here in Maine. And depending where you live or visit, your Maine experience will be different from somebody in a different part of the state. I’m going to share a little bit about my Maine.
Let’s get right to the good stuff. Mmmm…lobster! I could make lobster stew for all of the JETS with this 27 pound lobster. Here’s a little trivia. How long does it take a lobster to get to be one pound? I’ll let you guess and then I’ll give the answer in the comment section.
Growing up, we owned a lobster pound where people could come to eat lobster, clams, and mussels, along with some other good stuff. It was always fun to meet people from all over and watch their interactions with the Maine lobster. Some were pros and all that was left were empty shells when they were done. Others needed step-by-step instructions, while some didn’t even want to touch the lobster. There was not a day that didn’t bring many laughs. No, I wasn’t laughing AT the people, I was laughing WITH them. Well, sometimes they were laughing, too.
My favorite part of my Maine is living on the coast. I LOVE the ocean! One of my favorite pass times is going to the beach to collect sea glass (and whatever else may capture my attention). I do not live far from Acadia National Park. It is incredibly picturesque and the home of Cadillac Mountain. This picture depicts looking down from the mountain onto Bar Harbor (a popular tourist town).

I’ll share a few of my creations that came from my beach findings.

A great part of the JET team has been getting to know people from all over the world…and my own little world of Maine.
