Beach town

"Beach, n., the shore of a body of water, esp. when sandy or pebbly," says my dictionary. So you would think that when Travel and Leisure magazine picks the best small beach towns in the US, they'd feature lots of Florida and California and Carolina expanses of sand. And they did, for the most part. So what's Lubec doing at number 3 on the list?

Now Lubec is a wonderful place. But as far as I know, there's no sand, no honky-tonk, no babes, no hunks, no mai tais, no surfing, actually no swimming at all considering the cold Atlantic. If T&L gave an award for best small rocks-rockweed-high tides-nice people-amazing bay and island views-fresh food-quiet-cultured town, then Lubec wins. But please don't put her in with hot, placid, boring towns in Texas; she's not their type.
