Along The Rocky Coast

Had us a nice outing into Frank’s Restaurant in Lubec yesterday evening.

The place is right along the water front and from our seats we could actually look over to the Mulholland lighthouse on Campobello.  Ordered myself a baked haddock in butter, served with mashed potato and baby carrots. Yum yum….great food. Bea had a delicious haddock burger, while Bob tried the fried shrimps.

After a good meal I can have a good night sleep and today started with a deep blue sky and some chilled-down temperatures, which warmed up to a comfortable 65F during the afternoon.

With a view also to the International Bridge and my yummy meal

While Bea went working at the Motel, Bob and I went hiking. Of course, we took Molly along. The trail I had chosen goes from Raccoon Beach along the rocky coast to
SUNSWEEP SCULPTURE. It’s a 2.2km (1.36mi) hike along one of the most beautiful trails on Campobello.

Molly was always ahead of us but waited for us when we lagged too far behind.
DSC_0168 DSC_0167 This hiking trail is considered the Roosevelt Park’s most difficult as there are many ups and downs, but it is still very doable if one just watches out for the many roots and occasional rocks.

The park has been very diligent with laying out planks, covered with rough anti-slide roofing material. The views we had from this trail are nothing short of spectacular. Hidden-away quiet coves where driftwood has piled up are followed by extremely steep rocky stretches where only seabirds can land.

But what am I raving about here. YOU be the judge!

Thanks for stopping by!
