For the longest time, coastal Maine was my dream vacation. Though I’ve been to a number of divine destinations across North America, a journey to The Pine Tree State always eluded my grasp. There have been plenty of reasons for the allure: the picturesque oceanside vistas, the copious amounts of seafood, and also the fact that my paternal ancestors just so happened to emigrate to America by way of Maine. This was the fatherland! With lobster rolls!
Imagine my elation, then, when I finally got a chance to not only travel to Maine, but to a small town with a big heart that made all my coastal dreams come true: Ogunquit, the hidden gem of the crown of New England.
