A calm place

Lobster bouys were all over the place

Where we posted our first update in Winter Harbor

Early morning

Our camp at sunrise

We drove on up to Maine on Labor Day, and it was a relief to see all the heavy traffic going in the opposite direction.

Labor Day

Monday and Tuesday nights were spent at a beautiful campground near Freeport (the directions said to turn left at L.L.Bean), situated at Wolfe Neck Farm, with most of the campsites right on the shore, at the top of a cliff, There were stairs down near us, and a kayak slide which looked quite intimidating.

On Wednesday we drove to Southport - south of Boothbay Harbor. Gray Homestead is a nice campground on the shore (campsites are a bit up the hill) and they catch and cook lobsters for you! First we built up an appetite by a vigorous kayaking paddle, with coming back against the wind AND tide. Then the lobsters - outdoors on the picnic table. Yum!

Saturday, September 8

Yesterday, we drove to Birch Harbor on the Schoodic Peninsula called Ocean Wood. It is run as a private nature preserve, and we have one of the sites right on the water, Today, we went hiking a bit in the the nearby section of Acadia National Park here, and just enjoyed a lobster roll for lunch. (Update: Anne's toothache is on the bottom right, last tooth. It now hurts to bite down there, but she is less worried, and will chew on the other side.)
