We're Back!!!! (Maine)

Welcome back. Today we have a great set of pictures and a nice back story from Jeff and Samantha. Jeff and Samantha are taking part in a contest (which I will let them explain later) and sent along these pictures in Maine.

I will let them explain the pictures.
The first picture is of The lighthouse depicted in the photos is of Nubble Light.  It was built in 1879 and is one of the most prominent lighthouses in the country.  A photo of it is even carried on the Voyager Spacecraft as an example of a man made object.  The beach photograph is taken just down the road at Cape Neddick Beach.  This is a typical example of one of the sandy beaches in Maine.  The final photograph is of the Clay Hill Farm restaurant in Cape Neddick.  Clay Hill Farm provides year round dining with the use of seasonal and local foods. 
Great Stuff!. Now as I mentioned earlier Jeff and Samantha are in a contest. Jeff and Samantha will be getting married at Clay Hill Farm this summer.  They are also finalists in Clay Hill Farm’s Green Wedding Giveaway.  The contest is designed to spread a message of sustainability and show people that “you don’t have to sacrifice your dream to make a difference in the world”.  Out of over 100 couples, 3 finalists were chosen to win a wedding package.  The grand prize package is a complete wedding for 75 guests valued at over $40,000.  The grand prize winner is chosen partially based on votes and a community giveback campaign that is meant to spread their green message into the community.  For their community giveback campaign, Jeff and Samantha are starting a vegetable garden at Jeff’s university and also maintaining a blog about their efforts to minimize the trash they create in their daily lives.  You can follow their journey and vote for your favorite couple at

I already voted to Jeff and Samantha (it took about ten seconds) and strongly encourage you too. Thanks for helping out Jeff and Samantha.

As always, if you can help with our Project please email Now that Jeff and Samantha crossed Maine off the list we still need Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska,New Hampshire, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. But as always you are not limited to those states.

Thanks for reading.
