life_in_maine_orrs_islandMaine is famous for its coast. Just south of Brunswick is a series of islands—Sebascodegan Island, Orrs Island, and Bailey Island—that take you out into the Gulf of Maine at the edge of Casco Bay. Fishing communities can be found around Orrs Island and Bailey Island, surrounded by the vacation homes. With the winter lingering into April, these islands feel deserted.
