Where in Maine?
Ever trolled these waters?

Wintertime makes this quiet spot located on Maine’s largest island even quieter. Known mostly as a robust lobstering community, this small village is part of a town whose name means three mountains in French. Today, you can catch a ride from here to two different islands via the Maine State Ferry Service. The major tourist draw is the village’s thirty-two-foot lighthouse built on the rocks in 1858. Once you’ve snapped some photos, there are a few places to fill your belly with local lobster, such as the popular pound just across the water. (And don’t miss what the locals call the Oh-Boy! Doughboy — fried dough topped with ice cream, hot fudge, and whipped cream — the signature sweet at one of the village’s eateries.) Send us a note if you can identify this quiet scene at P.O. Box 679, Camden, ME 04843; whip off an email to firstname.lastname@example.org; or post a comment at www.DownEast.com if you’ve ever trolled these waters.
