Where the East is a Beast

Welcome to Lubec

After Common Ground I made the long haul (a hair over three hours) to Lubec.  I’ve been to a lot of places in Maine, but had never ventured here, the easternmost city in the United States.  Tonight that oversight was corrected, but I was looking forward to tomorrow. My motivation was Campobello, the summer residence of FDR, which is actually in Canada, but a short haul (one mile) over a bridge from here.

Even though it was dark by the time I checked in, I was pleased by my room.  There was a sliding glass door leading to a teensy porch, but the big window overlooked the water and had a pair of wooden beach chairs poised in front of it.  After dinner this proved an ideal spot to relax and write up the day’s adventures, especially around 9:30PM when a sudden clamor arose outside.  There was apparently a garage entrance immediately beneath my room and a fishing crew was unloading their day’s catch.  Some may have been annoyed by the clanging and boisterous chatter which persisted the following 45 minutes.  Not for me.  Just like Common Ground, this was another example of the hard working soul of Maine.  I was back home again.
