Best Coast is actually a new band that released their first album (on vinyl and cd) and their idea of the best coast is the West Coast. It’s terrific retro California 1960s beach music. Still, these photos of Steep Hill Beach in Ipswich, Massachusetts, make the case that the best coast is the one closest to home.
The stillness of Maine visits now and then. The Migis Lodge is tucked away in the woods in one of the quieter spots on Sebago Lake, and – for a price – creates a sanctuary from another time where people still play shuffleboard and drink lemonade sweetened with maple syrup. That was 2005. Now they can probably play shuffleboard, drink lemonade sweetened with maple syrup and check their Blackberries.
