We left Bar Harbor, Maine, for a two and a half hour trip up Highway 1 to Lubec, Maine, the easternmost point of the United States.
When we checked into the campground the office manager told us that sunrise would be at 5:30 a.m.. Reckon we can muster up the energy to get up one morning to see sunrise before anyone?? The sun touches the first US land here at Lubec, and especially at the East Quoddy Lighthouse--about 5 miles from the rv park.
THIS is the part of Maine we expected to see and have been looking for. It is a lovely/beautiful/scenic little town on the southern tip of the Bay of Fundy. Across the bridge from Lubeck is Campbello Island, Brunswick, Canada.
We have a trip planned to Campbello Island, and will give the details of the importance of the island at that time.
The pictures tell the tale of the beauty. I haven't shared all I have taken here. Taking pictures of the harbors/bays filled with fishing/lobster boats with the fog lifting and sinking, throwing in a lighthouse, is addicting. Just gotta have one more.
We expected we would just stay one, maybe two nights; but have changed our mind. We might stay a week! It would be nice to sit in the recliners watching the water, and gulls, or take the chairs downtown and watch the lobster boats coming and going.
It is only ten miles north to Highway 1 and then 10-15 miles to the Brunswick, Canada border. We will make it eventually.
We are far enough off Highway 1 that there is no cell or MIFI service. Thankfully the rv park has wifi, which is what I am using. We have added Canada service to our Verizon plan so when we do get into Canada with service we are covered.
