Chennie found the locale & the company dull and when the camp held its annual lobster picnic on the rocky coast of Corea, he announced she was staying. For the remainder of the vacation, the trio rented a Corea cabin for & all three returned summer after summer. This reel documents the friends' early days in Maine.
