I greatly appreciate it! Nothing personal, however...I have no interest in seeing a convict. Thanks for the other suggestions!!!!!!!!!

Don't forget Southwest Harbor, Seawall, Bass Harbor & lighthouse, Pretty Marsh, Seal Cove Auto Museum and Bernard. I highly recommend the lobster at Thurston's in Bernard

Have you ever been to The Deck House? I haven't been there in a long time but I am going to make a point of it this summer.

Not recently..... But then again, maybe just as well. About 35 years ago, I used to have an annual party, and there was a local girl who was quite hot, and who had been employed as a stripper, who often attended my friends parties. When she got drunk, which she always did, all someone had to do is hum a few bars of a famous Baltimore Block Stripper song, and she would perform immediately.

At first I used to hope that some young woman would do that at one of my parties. But as the years progressed, I began to hope and then pray that no one did.

So since 40 % of the winter population of MDI is retired, maybe its just as well that Lake Wood doesn't seem to be a skinny dipping lake anymore. And, also it is owned and maintained by the park service, with regular Ranger Visits, so its probably discouraged, at least on the main beach.

The Diver Ed boat ride looks great! Thanks for the recommendation.

I haven't gone to this show but I sure wanted to: Timber Tina?s Great Maine lumberjack Show Trenton, MainE Looks like it would be great fun for the family, particularly after a long day of hiking. Plus, it's cheaper than going to the movies (at least in my neck of the woods.)

I have not been to the Lumberjack Show but my brother and his kids went back when the kids were like 10 and 8 and they all loved it. Also a local friend of mine went and loved it too and she is 55.
Check it out.
