Every July we spend some extended time DownEast. It’s our special place and our special time. I wrote this blog a few years ago but love repeating it every summer. Hope you don’t mind….
I’ve been on a two week vacation in Robbinston, Maine, a very tiny town with no town center and only 500 or so people in almost 34 square miles. Robbinston is in Washington County, Maine – Downeast Maine’s “Sunrise County.” Washington County is called the Sunrise County because it is the easternmost county in the United States. It’s also the poorest county in Maine and among the poorest in our country.
