Come sail away

Bar Harbor Ferry offers great destinations for locals and tourists 

BAR HARBOR/WINTER HARBOR – As the weather warms up and tourists roll in, those of us who frequent the Bangor area sometimes avoid the tourist hot spots due to congestion. And when the tour ships sail into Bar Harbor, it can get crazy – but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t go. You just have to think outside the downtown.

Happy 100th Birthday, Kate!

by Kaitlyn Furge

The Katahdin, known affectionately as Kate for short, is celebrating its 100th birthday this year. After all these years, its wooden decks and curved railings are still charming Greenville visitors who want to take a step back in time. 

“If you go on the boat, you fall in love,” Liz Cannell, executive director of the Moosehead Marine Museum, says. The ship’s long history is rooted deep in Moosehead Lake. 

Maine International Film Festival returns for 17th year

WATERVILLE – As someone who spends a lot of time going to the movies – especially in the summertime – I occasionally find myself growing weary of the same old recycled sequels and reboots that are relentlessly churned out by the Hollywood blockbuster machine. There are a lot of movies that make their way into theaters during the dog days – some are good, many are bad and precious few are great.

Mark Miller – A Life of Music

by Mike Dow

As I watch him gently lift the perfectly-tuned guitars from their cases, I think “This man treats his instruments as if they are his best friends.” He cradles them while his fingers fall over the strings and a smile appears on his face. If they could speak (and in his hands they can), they might ask, “Are you going to make me sing, cry or laugh today?” On a typical night, they will do all three.  

It’s a gorgeous early summer day on the Bangor Waterfront and I’m meeting up with guitarist Mark Miller for a photo session near the water followed by a conversation over lunch at the Sea Dog Brewing Company next door.

Because Dads rule

by Katy England

Some Father’s Day ideas

Father’s day is a couple of weeks away, and there’s still plenty of time to get gifts. But time is slippery, and we thought we’d give you a hand. Gifts for dads will vary wildly - after all, dads are as unique as you are. And to be clear, dads can be your biological father, or someone who fills that dad-like role in your life.

Living it up with lawn games

by Allen Adams

A few summertime favorites to enjoy in your very own backyard

With Memorial Day behind us, we can start looking forward to the full onset of summer. It has been a long cold winter and a less-than-ideal spring – one has to think that Mother Nature owes us a decent summer experience, right? Time will tell.
