The Maine coast
« on: May 21, 2021, 07:03:02 PM »
My wife and I just got back from a couple of days up in Maine by the ocean. This was the first time in over two years that we had the chance to get away and we enjoyed ourselves very much. Maine is a great state to visit. My son and his wife gave us a very generous gift certificate for a great hotel right on the ocean. We stayed two nights and ate two dinners in their restaurant.

The view from our room.


 


Much of the Maine coast is very rocky.


 

 

 
There are lots of little coves and harbors where the lobster boats and fishing boats tie up.


 

 
And of course there are nice sandy beaches. But the water is too cold for me even in July.


 

 

We had a great time.....Cutter

And you was in what town?
We were in Ogunquit. The little harbor was Perkins Cove. The beach was Ogunquit Beach. Our hotel was Anchorage By The Sea, and the pictures of the rocky coast were taken on a walk along The Marginal Way. All of it was soothing for the soul.

I have not seen the east coast but it's on my bucket list. I love the west coast away from the cities but water is pretty chilly as well.

We drove the scenic route maine years ago on our couple trips to Florida, absolutely loved driving through every little town and village, its much like my home Nova Scotia but with little less boreal Forrest features. Myrtle beach in South Carolina, that was a neat endeavour, felt like Mexico in that area. I remember we also stopped into a very old town/city named Savannah and its was a beauty, old stone roads and such. Its been to long gotta make that trip after earth returns to normal.

If you do be sure to check out the bay of fundy and if youre up to it the tidal bore boating  :D The valley in general too is a great place it has its own little feel to it

I guess about every road on NS.  Caught the ferry to Port aux Basques, Newfoundland from North Sydney, Breton but sadly did not take the camper.  Walking day trip only.  :-X

Awesome! So you’ve been down my way, not much to see here huh :D. This would be the shelburne- barrington area

Best seafood in the world here! I’ve gotten so accustomed to eating seafood straight from the wharf fresh that I can’t even eat seafood in inland areas, doesn’t taste the same

We bought boiled lobsters on the dock/wharf several times in NS and also NB.  That trip was in 1995.

I looked at the map and yes, we made the Hwy 1/101-3/103 loop.
