In Maine - if you haven't been, its coast will seduce you

It has been a while since we have posted anything on the NYSkiBlog. Truth is, so many of you we have met and have become friends due to Harvey and this site. Thank you for allowing us to be part of this fun and diverse community.

We hope that if you like our latest, all we ask is for a huge "Thumbs Up" on Youtube. Without further ado, we bring you our latest "In Maine"

As some of you know, Maine is a big part of our lives and where our hearts and minds have been for many years. We summer and at times have wintered there, longing to be there. If you have never been to Maine, when you go, its coastline and beauty will seduce you.

If there is one place you want to be
It’s where your senses will be filled.
A place where you have a connection
Where you belong.

Not just a place to visit,
but a place to reflect and to create a lifetime of memories.

Hearing the waves crash and feeling the sun beat down
You will be overwhelmed by Maine’s beauty.

It’s a place to stop and smell the flowers.

And to embrace life’s precious moments
and it’s fragility.

Where at sea you have guides.

And as the tides change,

You will sail together.

And your bonds will be made

It’s all you need.

Where the mornings embrace you,

as these are the ones to cherish.

And this energy, will flourish within you

Its coastline will replenish your soul.

This is Summer in Maine.

Nice job as always Ray. I recently tried playing around with IMovie a bit to edit some of the footage I have of the boys but I haven’t really figured it out yet. I think you need to give us a how-to thread up at some point

Thanks to an aunt who lives there, I know the area quite well.  It's strange when you hit "pots" (lobster trap buoys) when sailing around the Calendar Islands.

SkiRay, have you looked into buying a lighthouse?  A few years back they were "surplus" items (or some such terminology).

Oh man, we need to hang out then.  We will probably not be back in the area until late fall or in the Winter to ski.. Though if we move there by then - all the better!

We have come close to hitting pots though never caught one.

Funny you mention that about Lighthouses...  They do have a few for sale though bargain is relative . .Compared to NYC prices.. Yes.

Speaking of this story - I have to say it was the hardest one for us to edit to date. We shot weeks worth of video - though thought, lets make it short and meaningful - to us..  Editing is hard to do.  We learned this afternoon that Maine Tourism Association has shared it on their social media.

Thanks for pushing us here to get better at making these videos. We still have a boatload to learn..

Ray that is very pretty. I can see why Maine Tourism shared it.  I like the sailboat where the skier normally goes too.
Was Sandro operating the drone in that one walking shot?

How did you guys get started in Maine?  Years ago I was looking for a place to go on vacation and the two big green spots on the map were Maine and the Adirondacks.  I picked the Adirondacks because it was closer, and it became my place.

One thing... if you want the video to be responsive to all size devices, wrap it with this 'embed-container' code:

<div class='embed-container'><iframe XXX></iframe></div>

It won't be centered, but you can see the full screen on mobile.

>>> Thanks Harvey. Maine is an easy place to shoot. It was really killing us how much footage we left out -though we knew we had to do it.

>>> So many skiers are sailors - the kids are pretty good ..  Sailing is a great family activity too.

Was Sandro operating the drone in that one walking shot?
>>> Yes, he was operating the drone there. Funny, we all shot with the drone for this video.. Alicia, Nevada, Sandro and Me.

How did you guys get started in Maine?
>>> I have been going to Maine since I was teenager and fell in love with the place. When Alicia and I met 28 years ago, I took her there, she fell in love with the place. 3 years later we would elope there and have been going there pretty much ever since for summer and at times Winter. We were hoping to move there this summer though we failed to make that happen.

>>> We love the ADK too and after spending time there this summer and shooting Dis-Lodge (not sure if we posted that here) we were floored how beautiful it is.  Though at the end of the day, the ocean has such a pull on it, I don't think we can never not be by the sea.  Maine sort of has it all.

I've spent a bit of time in some of the most beautiful places in the country and I have to admit, the coast of Maine is right there with anywhere.

Cool vid Ray. You would freak out working on shots here in NAZ. The visuals are nutty.
