Thank you so much for including my photographs. We travel to Lubec most summers and stay as long as we can. We enjoy everything about Lubec, the people, library, shops, weather, sea glass and the ocean view doesn't hurt. Maine beats the Oklahoma summer hands down!"

"You provide a valuable resource to us all here in Washington County." -- Patricia C., Eastport, ME

"Just dropping you a note to say I am most grateful for your Web site. I've been researching vacation destinations in the Quoddy Bay area for several days, and yours is the only Web site that provides complete factual information (e.g., average temperatures by month) and organizes information rationally. The town's tourist map is very well done. I learned more about the entire region from your Web site than I did from most other Web sites combined." Mark A., Danbury, CT

"The site looks so good,...plenty there for the tourists and visitors and locals to explore and try." Marty S., Lubec ME

"I am thrilled my photos were included in the slide show. Our trip to Lubec will never be forgotten and we are still holding onto the glow from that visit. We hope to return in the not too distant future. Lubec is truly a very special place."
