Maine coast in November

Beautiful day yesterday, Jerry and I headed down to Route 1 to do a little exploring. Stayed on the pavement cause of hunting season.
1st stop Lamoine:
Lobster traps being pulled out

cool buggy at Lamoine state beach








Then to Marlboro beach






hmmm, looks tempting to ride over there!


why not?








yep, that was fun!


cute house that we rode by


not sure where this is, but pretty!


then on to Sorrento:
my bike enjoying the view












getting to be halfway through the day at this point so plotted a route home- only have one pic 'cause of no places to pull over, but very pretty, fun twisty roads up route 200 and 179 past hills and blueberry fields and lakes



then flew down the airline (rt 9). Stopped at the eagles nest since we had been too busy having fun to have lunch
view from the eagles nest (Penobscot river)


and yummy lobster roll


then headed home, arriving just as the sun was going down over the horizon!
fun day, but way too short- missing the longer summer days!

Hey Dave, it certainly is a beautiful area- we would have invited you along, but both Jerry and I had some health issues that we weren't even sure we would make it out of the driveway- however felt much better after the ride

Hi Nate! Hopefully good memories We were hoping to make it over to the Schoodic Penninsula, but unfortunately ran out of day

oh gosh.. very good memories. my folks still live down there, i don't get to visit nearly as often as I'd like.

Schoodic is indeed an AWESOME site to visit... havne't been through on a bike yet, just the pedal variety. used to do the loop on mountainbikes when i was in highschool.. 12 miles, take us about 3 hours or so (including stops for scenery/etc)... it's REALLY awesome when there is a storm coming in, the waves are BREATHTAKING.

Ranier_Rider- hopefully someday will be sooner rather than later! Would love to make it out your way someday to ride.
MacGyver- have not been as far south as Georgia to ride- but assume you have some great riding there as well!

Very nice pictures of the water.

If you like fried clams, ride to this place in Brooksville some summer day....

Is this normal weather for the coast of Maine in mid-November? I would expect rain mixed with snow and howling winds out of the NE.

It can go either way this time of year- the whole state was unusually nice and warm on Saturday- I think close to 60F. We had snow for halloween- we live about 40 miles from the coast
