Who Needs the Office of Tourism?

Cookie, "the lifestyle magazine that celebrates the joys of parenthood," features a travelogue of the Blue Hill region.

Besides scouring Robert McCloskey's One Morning in Maine for packing tips (sweaters, bugspray, thick-soled waterproof shoes, and your own food), the article features this, um, enthusiastic endorsement for vacationing in Vacationland:

"Maine is a place that doesn't reveal itself to outsiders--or even insiders. The locals often ignore you, the roads wind around confusingly, and the weather can flat-out suck."

I don't know about you, but those are definitely the qualities I look for when I'm deciding the next spot for my rest and relaxation.
