Remote Maine island beckons Sun City pair

March 17, 2011 

Spending every summer on a tiny, remote Maine island without cable TV or the Internet isn’t for everyone. But to Margret and Charlie Maloney, Matinicus Island is paradise. For the last 47 years, they've spent June through September in their somewhat rustic second home on the three-mile long, one-mile wide island, embracing a lifestyle that requires a sense of adventure, tolerance, independence and humor. The Boston Globe travel section has described Matinicus as “rugged, but beautiful, with sweeping ocean views and sandy beaches.â€
