Eastern Most Point

Before getting too far from Acadia we ditched the RV at Ellsworth, ME Wal-Mart and took off to Lubec, ME to the Eastern most point in the USA.

The lighthouse, Quoddy Light, is one of the more famous ones in the area. The volunteer that day was friendly and knowledgeable and we had a great visit. We could also see Lubec Channel Light which is affectionately known as “sparkplug” in the channel.

That's SparkPlug right there, out in the channel all by his lonesome still doing his job today!

We made our way on into town and crossed over into Canada onto the Campobello Island to see two more lighthouses. Mulholland Point Light and the Head Harbor Light are there. The area was beautiful and we had lunch at a local family establishment before we made our way to Herring Cove. I had a lobster roll which was very tasty and "frings".  A mix of onion rings and french fries, of course I loved that! MiRV had haddock with frings too.

Here we walked the shoreline collecting the neatest smoothest ocean rocks I have ever seen. Think river rock but they are ocean rock.They are beautiful and I could have spent hours searching for ones that I thought were unique with amazing color. There were shades of green, orange, purple, brown, black just to name a few, again it was amazing the smoothness of these rocks. I pocketed a few!

It was a great day, sunny, not too warm. Then we went to return to the US and had a little glitch. Yes, we were detained at the border. Stay tuned for a blog post on that!

Tomorrow it's the Fort Kent, Maine, the start of end of US1 depending on your philosophy.
