Larger Than Life In Corea By The Sea

Just a short drive from us, is Corea By The Sea. A visit to this picturesque village reveals what life in Downeast Maine is all about.

Downeast humor can be subtle or dry, but it always gives a chuckle when you notice. Like these folks that named their home "Lobstertown."

Quite literally, this is the view from their backyard.

It's the type of scene you would expect to see on the cover of a jigsaw puzzle.

When you're here, even on an overcast day, there is plenty of color for you to feast your eyes on.

It's the quintessential Maine fishing village, where as if on queue, the gulls gather above the wharf right while you're taking pictures.

You almost feel like you're on the set of a movie when you're here.

But it's all real, and all larger than life local color.

More Downeast humor.

Sometimes it's not so subtle, but it did give us a chuckle.

I loved seeing the pictures of this very picturesque town and you're right it does look like something right out of a movie or from a puzzle box! Really beautiful, thanks so much for taking us along with you!

It is exactly as I would imagine the quintessential fishing village to be, straight from a movie. 'Lobstertown' has a great outlook. There would always be so much to see. A sea view is always so magical.

What a lovely town - and that woodpecker is wonderful too. So much to see in one small area. Thanks for taking us with you.

LOVE these pictures - you know they look so much like the scenery that we saw on our trip to Nova Scotia - especially Peggy's Cove. I could walk around that little place and take pictures all day. You did a great job in the poisting of the pictures - really beautiful!
