Machias....

...Maine, the name means 'Little Bad Falls' in Passamaquoddy speak,
show up above, if you kayak you may make it over with a squeak;
Washington County seat, and home to the First Naval battle of the War of 1812,
way back into history, you can find thing if you delve.

The University of Maine has a campus here,
students of the environment study birds and deer,
and when it's time for blueberries, the low bush kind,
this area gets to working, except the old and blind.

Bottom: The Maine Black fly Breeders, had the winning float in the July 4th Parade.
