American Locations 32 – Quoddy Head

This trip goes from Cincinnati, Ohio, to the Boston area, then up the New England coast all the way into Canada, then back through the Adirondacks to the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York.

After 4 days on Campobello Island, we were ready to return to the US. Before leaving, we stopped to see the lighthouse on the southwestern end of the island.

And the views from there.

Then we drove across the International Bridge into Lubec.

We drove southwest through Lubec on 189, then turned south to follow the coast on South Lubec Road. This led us out onto the peninsula jutting into the Atlantic Ocean, West Quoddy Head, and to Quoddy Head State Park. We parked at the lighthouse.

From there we gazed out to sea. This was supposed to be another good location to spot whales, but we had no luck.

Although we saw no whales, we saw plenty of birds.

After returning to relax at the lighthouse…

We gave up on spotting whales and hiked around the rocks.

But I couldn’t convince my wife to scale the granite heights.

I thought it would have been the perfect place to spot whales from, but she declined.

So we got back into our motor home and continued.
