Sunset Point RV Park, Lubec, ME

Sunset Point RV Park, Lubec, ME

Day 7 - Sunset Point RV Park, Lubec, ME 126.9 miles, 814.9 For the Trip

We did have a little bit of rain last night, although still not heavy enough to be sure the upper rear storage compartment will stay dry. I checked my new caulking around the upper taillights I added & it looks OK, but I don't want to store anything in the compartment until I'm sure I fixed my lousy installation. It is amazing how much the loss of just one compartment messes up storage. I can't find anything!

Spent most of the day driving up US 1 & 1A, however I saw a sign for the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park, and decided to explore. While I've been to Acadia a bunch of times, I've never been to this section. A very pretty drive, particularly at Schoodic Point. Took some photos, then continued on to Lubec, ME. Lubec is the eastern most town in the US. Now I've been to the southern most point as well as the Eastern most point. I guess I still have two to go although I may have hit the Western most point in the continental states during one of my west coast trips. While I've been to Hawaii, I know I didn't get to the western most park. We did stop at the Geographic Center of North America at Rugby, ND on a previous trip across the US. So many landmarks! The rest of the photos are at the Lakeshore Images page for today.

I stopped for the night at the Sunset Point RV Park and am in site 6. $30.00 for electric & water with a great view of the bay, and only $2.00 more than a state park. I thought about staying at Cobscook State Park, but misread the AAA map thinking the state park was on Highway 189 - it isn't, but Sunset Point is. We are close enough to Canada that both the iPhone & iPad insist on connection to Canadian cell towers.  I'm glad the campground has WiFi.

Dinner will be a duplicate of last night, finishing the chicken & left overs, at least if the wind dies down enough to cook. The view is great, but the off shore breeze is rocking the trailer!

Till next time.
