Seeing a different side of Maine with Robertson Family Cruises

MILBRIDGE Many people have commented on the idea that there are two versions of Maine. But I've always found that notion, though somewhat true, to be overly simplistic. There are hundreds of Maines, if not thousands. This state is like an intricately carved gemstone, with many facets that make it interesting and beautiful, depending on your angle.

I've been to many parts of the state. I've been up mountains, in rivers, in the air and on the beaches. But there's a lot to see, and clearly I haven't been everywhere or done everything.

Playing tourist

The warm weather is here. We've had more sun this spring than I can recall in recently memory. It's gorgeous, with cool breezes and minimal rain. And the tourists really haven't started getting out yet. All this makes for an ideal opportunity for those of us who stick around all year to get out there and enjoy what our fine state has to offer before it gets too crowded.

When I'm doing a stay-cation I like to stay within a two-hour drive from my home base. So it worked out great when I had an interview in Camden last week. As many of you know, Camden is a tourist Mecca. And for good reason - but since it's still a couple weeks before Memorial Day weekend, the flood of tourists hasn't taken over yet. This meant I could follow Route 1 and 3 all the way back to my neighborhood, looking at the towns with a tourist's appreciation, but without bad traffic.

If one were to distill the feeling and vibe of coastal Maine and turn it into a radio station, what would it sound like? Maine radio veteran Race Ashlyn asked that question before creating Coastal Maine Radio a new online station designed to reflect the eclecticism of the coast and the people who spend time there. 

Originally from Waterville, Ashlyn says he has always had a fascination with the coast. 'I've always loved it. Even as a teenager, I would load up the car with friends and we'd drive to Pemaquid or Camden there's a vibe that you can only get on the coast,' Ashlyn told me in an interview last week.
