Lucy broke camp this morning in Cheticamp, Nova Scotia. We headed out fairly early as we wanted to make it out of Nova Scotia today. The roads were kind of rough, but by late afternoon, we had crossed over into New Brunswick.

We continued to Moncton, New Brunswick where we got Lucy a campsite for the night. We covered about three hundred miles today. Lucy is glad to be off the road for the night.

Tonight's pictures include:

- Fred and the Girls getting packed up this morning.
- Really dark clouds coming over the mountain as we departed.
- Small lighthouse marking the channel as we left Cape Breton Island.
- Freighter in the channel.
- This poor old moho is so homely, he is kind of cute.
- Nova Scotia/New Brunswick Line.
- We came upon this little making his way down the road. Hi personalized tag indicated that he is really loved..
- He appears to be a 1954 Morris Minor.

Again tonight having problem with post pictures. Only two would post. I will try the others in the morning.

Lucy broke camp this morning in Moncton, New Brunswick. We came across the rest of New Brunswick and back into the United States at Calais, Maine. We headed south on
US 1 to Lubec, Maine. We plan to spend the next couple of days here exploring the area.

We got Lucy a really nice waterfront campsite in Lubec. We took a short ride to see West Quoddy Head Lighthouse. It is at the easternmost point in the Continental United States.

We got to see some of Lubec's 4th of July Parade. We went back to the campground for a very nice sunset and watched fireworks across the water. It was a good day to be back in the USA.

Tonight's pictures include:

- Wal-Mart in St. John, New Brunswick. Note how Supercenter is spelled.
- Approaching the United States Border in Calais, Maine.
- Waiting in line to clear U.S.Customs.
- Coming into Lubec, Maine.
- Lucy's waterfront campsite.
- 4th of July Parade in Lubec, it's just like New York City.
- The 1808 West Quoddy Head Lighthouse near Lubec.
- The lamp room atop the lighthouse.
- Old time Motor Court along US 1 in Pembroke, Maine.
- Sunset over the water from Lucy's campground.

Thanks again for the photos! Amazingly clear sunny weather, as I believe that part of Maine can be very foggy at times. Interesting that Lubec is not only the most easterly part of the US, but also the closest to Africa!



Happy Trails!

Peter

Lucy is still hunkered in at Lubec, Maine. She is camped at the easternmost campground in the Continental United States. We headed out this morning and toured Downtown Lubec. We got six shipments of Moose Tags off from the Lubec Post Office. After touring Lubec, we decided to head over to Campobello Island. Campobello Island is where Franklin Delano Roosevelt had a cottage overlooking the Bay of Fundy. It had been his parents' cottage where FDR summered as a child. We toured the cottage and continued across the island to see East Quoddy Head Lighthouse.

Campobello Island is in New Brunswick, so we had to clear Canada Customs to get to the island, and U.S. Customs to get back to Lucy in Lubec. Fog was on and off in the area all day long. Some of the over-water scenery was somewhat restricted at times. It was still a good day and we saw a lot of neat stuff.

We got back to Lucy early, and dined on Lobster Rolls made in Lucy's own kitchen. The fog has rolled back in, and we have settled into Lucy to watch a movie.

Tonight's pictures include:

- Sunset Point RV Park in Lubec, Maine. Easternmost Campground in the Continental United States.
- Lucy is dwarfed by her moho neighbors.
- Main Street, Lubec,Maine.
- Lubec Harbor Lighthouse in the dense fog.
- Colorful Lobster Buoys on a barn wall.
- 1960's Airstream resting in a yard in Lubec.
- Roosevelt Cottage on Campobello Island.
- Dining Room in the Roosevelt Cottage.
- The 1835 East Quoddy Head Lighthouse.
- Dock on Bay of Fundy at low tide showing the tide variance of over 20 feet.

Lucy broke camp in Lubec this morning. We were planning to head up to the Millinocket, Maine for some Moosing. Fred had other ideas. He was flashing a check engine code that indicates that his number 2 cylinder glow plug had shorted out. A glow plug is a cousin to a spark plug in a gasoline engine. His number 4 glow plug was just replaced in Saco, Maine two weeks ago. We contacted the Chevrolet dealer in Ellsworth, Maine. They will be able to take Fred in tomorrow morning for the repair. According, we headed to Ellsworth and got a campground here for the night.

We did some shopping in the area and settled in for the night. It is raining here now, so Lucy will get a bath.

Tonight's pictures include:

- Coming into Macias, Maine.
- Main Street, Machias, Maine.
- Wild blueberry field along US 1.
- Fishing vessels in the harbor at Milbridge, Maine.
- Business along US 1 with a really nice truck on the roof.
- Vintage motorcycle with sidecar making its way down US1.
- Lucy settled in at the campground in Ellsworth.
- Russian MIG 21 jet fighter at business on US 1 in Holden, Maine.
- !957 Studebaker Champion that has seen better days.

Brian, the furnishings and simplicity of FDR's cottage on Campobello Is. remind me of the similarity of his retreat at Warm Springs, Ga. In this time of maximum security and consumerism, it is interesting to see how much simpler things were in the past. At Warm Springs they had no more than 4 guard posts on the property if I recall correctly. That was during WW II. It would have been easy to slip past them in the forest.

Keep it coming.

Gene

The day Started early. I had Fred at the service department of the Chevrolet dealer in Ellsworth at 7:00 AM. They took Fred right in the shop. He received five new glow plugs, and they were finished with him by 8:30. They gave him a bath before putting him out in the lot. We were back at Lucy by 9:00 AM. SuEllyn had remained at Lucy and started the camp breaking process.

We got Lucy packed up and cleared her campsite by 10:30. The rains had begun. It was a light rain at first, but as we headed north, the rains intensified until it became a steady downpour. We made our way through Bangor and on to Lincoln, Maine, where we stopped at Wal-Mart to pick up a prescription.

We continued up to Medway where we got Lucy a nice full hook-up campsite. We made camp in the rain. Lucy was soon joined two campsites over by another Airstream from New York of the same size and model as Lucy.

We took a short ride over to Millinocket to go to a restaurant there. When we arrived, we found that the restaurant had, unfortunately, gone out of business. We returned to Medway and had a nice dinner in the cafe at the Citgo Station. We returned to Lucy and settled in for the night.

Tonight's pictures include:

- Patti Cakes in Ellworth.
- Downtown Bangor.
- Downtown Mattawamkeag, Maine.
- A roadside lake in the rain.
- Arriving in Millinocket, Maine.
- Unusual camper at Lucy's campground.

When in Maine I stopped in Boothbay to ask a question about directions. This was before GPS. The old gentleman said, "not heah", I asked, "do you know where it is". He said, "Boothbay Habba". I said" is this not where we are". He said "no, you are in Boothbay".

I pulled in the the prison craft shop on US 1 I think at Wescasset. A gentleman said, "Ya can't pak ya ca tha". Mainers are a whold nother breed.

They sure do talk differently here in Maine. Of course, that's what they think about us. Mainers find SuEllyn especially entertaining with her Alabama accent.

I pulled the "can't get theah from heah" remark from the stories of "Bert and I" They are marvelous. My grandfather was from Maine, and we got to hear all these stories many times. They never stopped being funny.
