|Surprisingly we had a very sunny day and decided to take advantage of it. So we got into the Fat Lady and took off to show the Island to our friends from Norway. |
First stop was Friars Head, which really is one of the top view points and highlights on Campobello. From here one can see the Cobscook Bay in Maine, the Friars Bay and Passamaquoddy Bay farther out. We explained the hydro tidal power project which was initiated before WW2 but was scrapped when finances went into defense budgets.
Next stop was the Mulholland Lighthouse which was built in 1885. It is an octagonal tower and 44ft. high plus the light. The view across the “narrows” and the International Bridge was especially beautiful today.
From Mulholland we drove
north and went to Mill Cove
Beach. Not many island visitors
have seen this beautiful and
The must-do-stop was the Head Harbour Lightstation, which we have enjoyed many times before.
On our way back home we stopped at the Families Fisheries Restaurant and had a snack and something to drink. While we were having a little meal in the shade a restaurant employee appeared and dropped two fresh lobsters in a huge pot of boiling water . The water was heated over a big wood stove outside. Of course, I had to go over and take a picture of the pot.
Bea made a nice chicken dinner and we all agreed that we had had great time together.
