Boothbay Harbour (that would be the Canadian spelling)

First off - everyone knows about tacky T-shirts in tacky souvenir gift shops in tourist towns. But this one rocks, really.
 Did a two hour sail on the schooner Lazy Jack. Spotted seals, porpoises and an empty Tab can, all within the harbour.
Enjoy


That would be $1.25 American or about $1.18 Canadian. We'd pay that much in tax alone in Canada, wouldn't we?  Assuming we could have happy hour, which is illegal in Ontario.
Since arriving in Maine I'm almost overwhelmed by the number of New York accents I'm hearing. They outnumber the Mainers, that's for sure.
And can you believe that on a BYOB cruise the mild-mannered Canadians were the only ones drinking? Rolling Rock - $6.95 for 6 cans. America is great.
