We travelled further to the most north-eastern point on our trip, the state of Maine. We don’t know why, but we were always fond of Maine and therefore very interested to see it. With Sarah ‘s weather luck in early fall it was of course cold and foggy 🙈. But still wonderfully raw and beautiful.
There are extreme tides in the ocean.. at low tide, people are searching for special stones or shells and the boats sit on land. Also they have extreme temperature differences.. one day freezing cold, next day you may sit in a T-Shirt in the sun.
And they love lighthouses; they have special State Parks to visit just tons of lighthouses:
And of course Maine is famous for Lobster. Everywhere you find neat Lobster Shacks with excellent quality of fresh lobster and the popular Lobster Roll, which is also easy to eat for beginners like us who had no idea what to do with the whole lobster on our plate:
We stayed near the town of Belfast. An awesome little town:
We were on a cosy campground with excellent ocean bay views which had a fun Bluegrass Festival going on:
…and of course good food again:
Our next destination will be the crown of Maine: Famous Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
See you there.
