Jun 16, 2019 - Cobscook sp

We left Schoodic around 11 a d stopped for a haddock sandwich in Machias. The Riverside cafe serves everything from burgers to lobster rolls and is really good! The weather stayed nice and we were able to get site 7 again on the water. 3,4and 5 are also nice sites on the water. Mosquitoes and little biting gnats are out but the breeze takes care of them.

Aug 3, 2018 - Campobello

It's Paul's birthday and Ralph and Cheryl surprised him with birthday hats and cinnamon rolls. Afterwards we took a ride to Lubec, Maine and visited a lighthouse which professes to be the easternmost edge of the United States. From there we crossed the border into Canada to visit Campobello, FDR's summer home. Before leaving Campobello we stopped at another lighthouse and watched seals frolicking in the water. After crossing the border back into the USA, we stopped to watch a moose grazing along the road. Had pizza for dinner and all in...

Jul 1, 2018 - Lubec

We drove towards Lubec and turned off of 189 to 191 and found the Hamilton cove trail. We walked the trail and went to the platform overlooking Cobscook bay about a mile down the trail. Great views looking out, we hoped to see whales but didn't see any. We drove on to Lubec to see the Quoody lighthouse which has red and white strips. We hiked along the trails and a Russian couple gave us some bolete mushrooms they found. We tried to find a lobster pound in Lubec but no luck so bought fresh haddock at Becky's. Came back to our great campsite...

Jun 30, 2018 - Cobscook sp

Schoodic didn't have another site for tonight so we headed up the coast of Maine towards Lubec. We stopped at Riverside Cafe in Machais to split a haddock sandwich and it was the best ever. We drove on up on bad roads to get to Cobscook sp and got the most amazing site #7 right on the water. We lucked out and got 2 nights at this site. Steak and corn tonight, seafood tomorrow!

Sep 17, 2017 - Leaving Canada on to Maine

Leaving Canada today. We had to surrender our tomatoes at the border, can’t bring tomatoes grown in Canada into the US. Heading back into Maine. We stopped in Calais ME to get fuel at a resonable cost. We camped at Sunset Point RV Park in Lubec ME. Nice campground right on the water. Lubec ME is the most easterly town in the USA. We headed back into Canada to the Campobello Island which is reached from a bridge out of Lubec ME. The Roosevelt Campobello International Park is on the island. This was the summer home for Franklin D Roosevelt...

Sep 20, 2015 - Most Eastern USA

After following US Route 202 all day Saturday through small towns and countryside, we stopped for the night at a campground west of Augusta ME before finishing the trek to northeastern Maine. In early afternoon, we were detoured around a town having a parade of some sort and that added to my challenges of the day making turns and so on. This campground is quite nice and small - a good jumping off point to see things around here.

Jul 26, 2014 - Lubec, Maine - Easternmost point

No stay in Maine would be complete, without a visit to some of its beautiful lighthouses, coastal trails, and a sea food restaurant for some Maine lobster. There are some great little towns and villages where you can sample all of these experiences… Lubec has all of them, and one more claim to fame: It’s the easternmost point in the U.S., literally a short bridge crossing away from Canada. We began our trip with a (short) Canada crossing, hoping to see some of the tourist spots on the other side. My mood was dampened right off the bat by...

Sep 2, 2013 - Downeast Maine

Days 180 - 182 of The Big Trip On August 31, we had about 200 miles to travel from Presque Isle to Lubec. Our rearends have become accustomed to shorter drives and were tired by the time we arrived in Lubec. One of the views we had, on the road, was of a huge piece of farming equipment. I can only guess that it had something to do with the potato farms that surrounded us. About noon, we arrived at a scenic pull off and stopped for a break and lunch. The view confronting us was gorgeous. This chain of lakes, marking the boundary between...

Sep 23, 2012 - Lubec, Maine

From the campground, we walked down to the Bass Harbor Lighthouse. The coast of Maine is very rocky here, dropping right down to the water. No beach at all. Back on the highway, we came across a blueberry store, Wild Blueberry Land. The smell of baking blueberry scones filled the air. We had to purchase some, plus blueberry spread and blueberry tea. What a neat, unique shop. The owners designed and built it themselves to sell their blueberries. Next we stopped at the Blue Bird Ranch Restaurant, Machais, Maine. After the main course, we...

Aug 27, 2012 - Drop In Company

First...I tried last evening to "post" but Trip Journal wouldn't cooperate. Yesterday afternoon Glen stepped outside and our neighbor next door here in the park says " you have friends that just checked in." Glen: "you mean someone from South Dakota." Neighbor: "no, someone that knows you." Glen: "I will have to go see who that is." Glen..inside talking to me: "Someone is here that knows us". Me: "I will bet it is Jim and Dee." Yes...Jim and Dee, our neighbors and friends from Zapata Texas, our winter home. We knew they were in this area....

Aug 25, 2012 - Our Version of "Lobstering"

Oh, my achy fingers! We drove to Cutler, Maine, 18 miles from the campground, where one may buy lobsters directly from the lobster fisherman. Current price is $3.20 per pound, which is up from $2.90. Still not too bad! Cutler is another scenic lobster Maine town. There isn't much else there except the lobstering business. We didn't see a grocery store or a filling station. There was a crew harvesting wild blueberries between here and Cutler. "Raking" blueberries is back-breaking work; but oh, my how delicious. Our RV campground provides...

Aug 24, 2012 - A quiet day on the homefront

No place to go and no schedule today. We got the bikes out and rode on a quiet road toward a state park. There were lots more hills on the bikes than when we drive it in the truck!! We sat outdoors with our books for quite a while in the afternoon. Glen with a paperback and me with the Kendle. We enjoyed the dinner view and watching the sunset this evening. Have a great week end.
