Thursday, October 9
As we headed for Mt. Desert Island, Maine, we took a side trip to Lubec, Maine--the eastern-most point in the continental U.S. While there, we visited our first lighthouse of our trip--West Quoddy Head Light. Then we had an enjoyable time climbing the rocks on the Bay of Fundy while the tide was out. Well, at least my dad and I did! Mom stuck to the low ground.
In Lubec, we also found the eastern-most Seventh-day Adventist church. Not a remarkable building in itself, but it was still neat finding it. There was also a lighthouse just across a waterway in Canada which we could see from Maine, but we never found out the name of it.
We drove on to Mt. Desert Island and found a campground near Bar Harbor.
