The Coastal Marshes of Maine

An interesting thing about New England (when you compare it to more heavily populated areas down south or in California) is that most towns decided not to destroy the coastal marshes. They make for some beautiful view points, but also play an important role in preserving local wild life (although I did see two guys walking around with shotguns this day) and filtering water after a storm. In California, the rule of thumb was to wait 2-3 days after a storm before going back in the water to surf (unless the waves were really good. In New England, you can surf immediately after (or during) a storm with no issues.
