I’d better catch up on my blogging, because we leave for Alaska tomorrow!
Here is a little more about Olivia’s trip. I can’t share everything, because there must be some secrets!
We did a road trip to Machias, where we visited with Kathy and Steve, and then went on to Canada the next day. Our goal was to visit Campobello, which is where the Roosevelt Family summered. As mentioned in the blog before, this is the only jointly operated International Park – as Canada and the US are partners in developing and managing the park grounds.
It’s about a 2 hour drive to Steve and Kathy’s, so we were glad to get there and stretch our legs. Notice their new addition in the yard (we were quite comfortable in there with the blowup mattress):
Along the way, we did show Olivia my favorite Haunted Mansion – still standing!
Kathy (aka Martha Stewart) has lots of pretty flowers growing in her yard … and tomatoes and zucchini and stuff, too:
We went to dinner at a great restaurant called Helen’s – they are famous for the pie – you can see why:
We left the next morning, and headed to Canada. Fortunately, it was a beautiful day, and we took a moment to visit the West Quoddy Lighthouse – this is where Lou won the nice lighthouse throw we have in the “nautical” room in Florida:
We headed into Canada and toured Campobello, including inside the Roosevelt summer home:
I think Olivia enjoyed her short visit into Canada (although we should have asked to get her Passport stamped). We made a couple more stops in Lubec – the Easternmost town in the US – but we’ll save that for the next update.
