Regarding Southern Maine...
My husband and I spent a blissful weekend in Blue Hill (not far from you, right?) many years ago BK (before Kids). Now the kids go to summer camp for a few weeks at Hidden Valley Camp in Freedom. When Dave and I visit, we work in a nice long weekend visiting them and touring around your absolutely fabulous state. Got some great yarn last summer from a couple of shops in Camden.
