Across the water, I catch sight of the end of my walk. The Piscataqua River, Seavey Island, and a foggy harbor are all that’s
left of New Hampshire. Then I notice hazy sun rays lighting up what looks like a distant beach, and I have an idea. I fish
inside my pack for my map. Let’s see. The coast of Maine: roughly 3,478 miles. Maybe next year.
