Thanks so much Montana, that helps a lot. A friend tells me that its really humid there, though... she couldn't understand why I wanted to go there.
You're very welcome. I don't find Maine to be overly humid at all, but that's just me. Everyone is different as far as the places they enjoy being, so it's basically a "to each their own thing". Some people love the city, while others prefer the counry. I was born and raised in the city and as much as I loved it when I was younger, I still longed for the country come vacation time. My parents were born and raised in the country in Canada and after spending 34 years in the city, 4 years ago I decided to move to the country here in Canada along the coast right next door to where my mother was raised. I've never been happier in my life, but there are some people who would be bored to death living where I do now.
If you enjoy beautiful picture veiws, the wilderness, the ocean and peace and quiet, then you'll love Maine. A lot of my friends prefer to be smack in the middle of a busy city and I don't understand why, but, to each their own ;-)
