Today is our grandson Abram's 11th birthday. Happy Birthday Abram.
Today our granddaughter Dacy is headed to Hutchinson, Kansas to participate in the 4H Horse Show at the Kansas State Fair. She has two events today and another tomorrow. Good luck Dacy!
We look forward to seeing these two and all of our other grandchildren when we return to Kansas in about five weeks.
Today, we went back to West Quoddy Head Lighthouse. We just stopped for a minute the other day when we took a picture. Today we want to spend a little time here. As we began our walk towards the lighthouse we saw this sign
Unfortunately this is how much of the walk was, but we got some good exercise.
I love lighthouses and this one is really beautiful. I had to stop at the truck after walking on the trail to put my jacket on as it was pretty windy and cool this morning.
Always looking for information on whales that I can share with our grandson Jaxson.
This is the easternmost point in the USA.
The next trail was to the beach access
Gorgeous view as we walked the path
Very neat looking tree as we neared the stairs down to the beach
Stairs to the beach
The beach. There were so many beautiful rocks. I really wanted one, but so many places frown on taking rocks I left without one.
We stopped at Bentley long enough to eat a sandwich and then we headed to Easport, ME.
It's about a 37 mile drive but it took nearly an hour to get there, due to the road construction being done on Highway 1. It was several miles of dirt roads.
|Very bumpy, dusty road|
|Welcome to Eastport, Maine|
|We haven't seen any old barns worth taking a picture of - but the churches are amazing!|
|Nice sign for the downtown Historic District of Easport.|
|I'm not sure what type of tree this is but they are all over town. They are very beautiful with these bright red cluster of berries.|
|Loved the weathered look of this home.|
|We ended up at the end of this very long lane only to find out it led into a driveway to this house.|
Easport has a nice downtown area with a walkway along the water.
|This is where we entered the walkway. Plantings were very nice and I loved this large orangish colored bulding.|
|The local pier|
|Close up of the boats|
|The seating here is for when they show movies from the pier, and other events. A very nice feature.|
|Fisherman on the Wharf|
|Explanation for the Fisherman on the Wharf.|
|Interesting information about the Sardine Industry here in Eastport.|
|The Eastport Post Office - isn't this a gorgeous building? I purchased some postcard stamps.|
|A little about the restaurant.|
|An interesting dock. The dock rises up these poles as the tide comes in.|
|Our sunset for tonight at our campground.|
