Maine and the Blood Moon

We crossed the border into Maine from Quebec.  I loved Maine.  It isn’t quite as civilized as Massachusetts or Connecticut.  And the scenery is stunning.  We stopped for lunch here and so began my obsession with photographing New England waterfalls.

The scenery on the way to our campground was breathtaking.  You can see that the leaves at this point were just starting change colour.

The next day we took the bike to Bangor and then down to Acadia National Park on the coast.  We had lunch in charming Bar Harbor.  My goal was to eat a lobster roll overlooking the harbor and that is just what we ended up doing!  And I found out that a lobster roll is just lobster in a bun.

We also stopped at Seal Harbor…

And at Seawall to check out the rock formations and tidal pools.

Of course, if you are on the coast you have to stop at a lighthouse so we took in Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse.

The next day we took in a different section of the coast and stopped for lunch in Boothbay Harbor, another charming tourist town.

At Camden we stopped to check out the multitude of sailboats.

At Lincolnville, it looked like fishing boats were the craft of choice.

Back at the campground we waited until dark and then took in the blood moon show.  We met a German couple and chatted while we both photographed and watched the show.

I think in the 3 days that we spent in Maine, we got a good taste of it.  We didn’t spend much time in the cities but that was fine with us!
