When I lived in Mass, back in '86, my buddy and I talked about going out with a lobster fisherman friend of my buddy's to pull in traps. We never got around to doing it and I wish we had.

Maine is SUCH a beautiful place. Very picturesque. People from the other parts of the country cannot appreciate its simplicity unless they have been there.
