After 3 days hiking at Campobello Island in New Brunswick, it was time to head home. Since I was only a bridge away from Lubec Maine, I decided to get one more visit in - Quoddy Head State Park. There is a colourful red and white stripped lighthouse - West Quoddy Head Light located here which is quite photogenic. It was automated in 1988 and became the focal point of the park. Interestingly, West Quoddy Head is the easternmost point in USA. There are also 5 plus miles of trails at the park including a 2 mile Coastal Trail which hugs the coast. The scenery is marvelous with wonderful views of the cliffs and coves of the area. There is even a beach access area where you can scramble along the rocky beach. It was low ... read more

Our much anticipated Puffin adventure started on May 19. We made a stop at Crane Creek State Park which is just outside of Toledo, Ohio, to look for migrating warblers, and were not disappointed. If you are the least bit interested in watching birds this is such a good place to go. There are boardwalks through wooded areas and around marshes, but the best part is the great number of experienced birders who point out and identify all the birds. This was a road trip without our camper and without Dave - we missed both by the end of our trip. We also decided to set some standards for motel/hotel rooms. 1. the toilet should be bolted to the floor 2. the reception area should not be shielded by bullet proof glass 3. electrical wiring should ... read more

Background Much as I enjoy traveling with my wife, the idea of taking a vacation by myself, a vacation where I can move at my own pace and focus on my hobby of photography has always seemed very attractive. I did a short photography workshop in Chincoteague, Virginia last November and enjoyed the experience. When Frank Van Riper made a presentation to the North Bethesda Camera Club, he also described the workshops he conducts in Lubec, Maine. The idea appealed to me, so, after a little bit of soul searching, I decided to sign up as a sixtieth birthday present to myself. I’m glad that I did. I like doing photo workshops because, on top of learning things and getting new ideas, I have ... read more

We got up, to sunshine blue skies. We heard on the news that Hannah caused a lot of flooding further north from us and it seems she just skirted the Brunswick area because we got rain last night but nothing substantial. Loaded the car and headed to our yummy continental breakfast. Very typical carb weighted food but they did have coffee. We decided to find the nearest Wally-world. There we purchased a small styrofoam cooler and some grapes, apples, juice and snacky stuff. Walmart was interesting...not the typical ugly building but one that more or less lent itself to the architecture of the area with gables and a tudor looking exterior. Inside it was the same but it was rather nice outside. OK, so I'm an idiot. I took about 20 pictures before I realized that ... read more

LOCATION: Acadia to Lubec, ME Acadia NP. Again we thought we would do some hiking but it was a downpour all day. So we drove into Bar Harbor and did the tourist thing for a while. We visited the Abbee Museum, a Native American Museum of the area , quite interesting. We continued our drive to the Eastermost town in the US---Lubec, ME. We drove out to view the West Quoddy Lighthouse, the easternmost point of land in the USA. The winds had to be 50 mph plus, and the rain was steady, we tried to get some photos. Then on we forged to a campground for the evening. The wind is incredible as we are perched above the sea, watching a crazy man dig for clams in the wind and rain. Good-night. ... read more
