Sep 8, 2016 - Sept 8 Wiscasset to Rockport (43 miles)

I wasn't going to write tonight, but I can't help myself, it has been such a great day! What better way to start a great day than with a great breakfast??? It may seem that much effort goes into the description of the food we have been lucky enough to enjoy, but it is so important in this journey to find the right sort of nourishment and if it just so happens that the nourishment is found in something so delicious it could almost be described as art . .. Well all the better! Our little motel in Wiscasset was so comfy nestled in and mostly...

Oct 7, 2015 - Rockport Maine

On October 1st we moved from Bethel Maine to Rockland Maine, a distance of approximately 105 miles. Once again we met up with Carmen’s sister Deb and her husband Mark. They were staying at the Samoset Resort. We had a relaxing visit. On our first day together we visited Birch Point Beach State Park and the Owl’s Head Transportation Museum. Our timing at the Museum was perfect because the New England Group for the Morgan automobiles was having a rally at the Museum. These English made cars, which look somewhat like an MG, are interesting...

Sep 10, 2014 - Keji, Bear River, Annapolis Royal, Yarmouth

Our final week in the Canadian Maritimes continued to provide a diverse range of experience and stories. We left Halifax, found rt 101 and headed west toward Digby. Midway we stopped to rest at a Tim Horton's and ended up hanging out for over an hour chatting with a couple getting set to do a similar trip but with a motorcycle in place of our smart car. They head out in a month and we certainly wish them well on their adventures. Jaggerspoint campground is located in smith's cove, with a waterfront on St. Mary's Bay. The bay is connected to...

Sep 30, 2013 - Rockport, ME

Janet's brother Mark is here and we are paying him a visit. He is has been planning a house with Gretchen for a long time and the actual building is getting started. The Maine seacoast is always fun to visit and we had a nice sunny day for it. Mark took us around to a few places he likes to go like a state park, a light house, a working lobster port, and Camden Harbor. We visited his house, which now has the foundation completed. After some grading and pouring a slab floor for the basement, he will be ready to start pounding nails! It has...

Hi All, Well, I am back after about seven days, all is good. Here are a few pictures to check out. We spent a day and drove around Bat Harbor, ME. It was a great day but as you can see the weather is foggy. I do believe it made for some nice pictures. Of course we had to stop and check out the beer, ended up at a place we thought would be nice, but the guy was a real crouch and we left and went across the way to another place and had our first lobster. We had a great server and he was from Ireland and had a smile and a great sense of humor....

Jun 12, 2006 - Rockport Maine

We left Bar Harbor and drove down Highway 1 to Rockport to the Megunticook Campground. We went to Rockport Harbor and then drove to Camden to the Camden Harbor area. We walked the street of shops, the left to fill up the truck. You can take a path at the campground that leads to a rocky cliff that overlooks the ocean. We saw a lot of lobster pot markers all over the bay area. Really pretty view.
