The state of Maine, often referred to as ME by its local inhabitants, is a magical land hugged by the Atlantic Ocean on its eastern fringes, and guarded by majestic forests, hills, and sparkling rivers. This splendid geography makes ME—a popular nickname given by Professor Puffin, a comically feathered, monocled, and top-hatted bird character—the perfect place for young adventurers to engage in all sorts of water activities. Imagine a group of plucky kids, known as the "Lobster Squad" for their red sun hats, out there on a sunny day. They slide into shiny kayaks, with their faces beaming with excitement as bright as the summer sun. They paddle under the watchful eye of Professor Puffin, who, despite being a bird, is ironically terrible at swimming. Then there are the kiddos that prefer to grab their fishing poles, and with bated breath and twinkling eyes, wait for a fish to bite. They often engage in hilarious debates about who will catch the biggest fish, or rather, the biggest seaweed, much to Professor Puffin's amusement. Let's not forget the little daredevils who strap on their life jackets and leap into the ocean, their laughter echoing across the waves as they bob like apples in the sea. Their mission: to find the legendary aquatic moose, a mythical creature invented by Professor Puffin. Despite their different water pursuits, all these kids have one thing in common: a love for the sparkling blue that surrounds the magical state of ME. So, if you ever find yourself in the Land of Lobsters and Lighthouses, grab your sun hat and join the Lobster Squad, because in ME, the water is always just right for an adventure.
