Wings Over Campobello And Another Boondocker Arrived

Two days ago another boondocking couple arrived. Tony and Nicky from Quebec travel in a beautiful 19ft Dodge-Mercedes ROADTREK Camper. They are praising the good fuel economy and the great mobility of their unit.

Yesterday we showed them the island and they are in awe about the beauty of this place. They had “Tea with Eleanor” (Roosevelt) and walked through the Roosevelt Cottage.

Many people had taken the hike across enjoying this truly unique place.
Besides of seeing surfacing whales, the Lighthouse also is a great place to observe many seabirds.

A total of 150 species of birds have been registered on Campobello Island and the Roosevelt Park has put them all into an informational flyer showing a map with key observation areas and sightings of interest.

Naturally, of all birds our bald eagles are the ones most people are looking out for.

  1. Yep, love the shots of the bald eagles. I usually find them moving too fast or too high.
