Great RR Kevin! You're inspiring me to take a trip to Maine....maybe I'll pull an HBN and go up one weekend just for the lobster roll.

This is great Kevin . When you earlier mentioned red snapper I was puzzled because I thought you were talking about fish.
It would have been nap time for me after the two lobster meal.
So did the lobster rolls live up to the hype and was the butter better?

You should go, but be sure to take bug spray.

I think we both liked the butter better but I wouldn't pass up one with mayonnaise either.

We were the same way Mickey. This trip changed our way of thinking for sure. We're already planning a return trip next year.

Hey Mike, I thought about you a lot as we rode through Vermont. What a perfect place to ride a bike.

Good thing the lobster meal was dinner, because it was bed time. The lobster rolls were great. Both were really good, but the butter was definately better.

Campcook walks out of the room and sees sunshine...............................makes her happy.



We walk down to the cottages by the water to see some of the sights that have been lost in the fog for the last couple days.



Look how bright it is. It's only about 6am at this point.



Hello Canada, see you next year hopefully.



We packed up and did one last ride through Eastport before heading to Bar Harbor.







I think I could hear her making motorcycle sounds when I took this.



We left Eastport and road down to Quoddy Head Lighthouse, the easternmost point of the United States. The sky is blue, the water is bluer, temp in the 60's. Couldn't be more perfect day to ride than this.



Leaving the lighthouse we find Boot Cove Road, it's a twisty, narrow road that follows the coast that will take us to 191.







On 191 we ride by Cutler Harbor.







We're riding down 186 and see a sign for Schoodic Point so we turn down the road to check it out. What the sign didn't say is that the road will turn into one way and we'll have to turn around and come in from the west side. Oh well it was still worth it.

Great RE

Great report Kevin sounds like you and Campcook had a great time. I love that part of the world. I was up there a couple of years ago and can't wait to get back. Thanks again for the report.

Great report Kevin! Thought we might run into around bar harbor since I met my family there around the same time you were there.

It's been almost a month since I left VA and we might make it back later this week.

Looking forward to comparing notes with you.

Thanks Al.

How in the world have you been? We've been wondering where you've been. You need to come join us at another campout.

Hey Paul, I thought about contacting you to see if we could get together but once we hit the rain we never knew where we were stopping each day.
It sounds like you've had one heck of a ride, can't wait to hear about it.

Hi Kevin and Rhonda,

Lake Placid, the Kanc, Smugglers Notch and Mt. Washington....good on ya mates. A lifetime of memories. It is nice to see your exuberance and enthusiasm for touring. Go to it while you still can.

Get yourselves up here to Nova Scotia. I have a warm place to stay. Then we eat 3lb lobsters while we watch iceburgs and whales go by...

Eric

PS: get Campcook some Goretex riding gear......
