Flowers from Campobello Island at the FDR cottage. As you can see I took some liberties with them.
A watercolor done by Justin of property owned in the beautiful town of Lee, Maine
A shot of the East Quoddy Head Lighthouse that I also had some fun with. I call it Sailors Delight (red sky).
On the way to Canada while driving up Rt.1 we ran across this place that stuck out from the rest of the landscape. Great blueberry crumb pies from a fun little place.
White birch trees on the property in Lee

Smile etched in dirt at Campobello. Worked for me, I smiled!!
Sunset off the deck of the rental house in Steuben.
This shot was taken across the street from a winery that we tried to go to the whole week we were in Maine and never had luck with, but the photos we got on the days we stopped made up for the loss of the spirits we missed.
Another good day at the winery.(Photo-wise)
Beautiful Silver Lake in the town of Lee.
Geddy's in Bar Harbor. We stopped here for some fine pizza while milling around the town. They have a web-cam outside that anyone can access, give it a try.
Sand Beach at Acadia National Park. This girl was walking her dog but my son and I didn't seem to notice the poor dog. The water is so cold year round that you don't often see the cheeky wear seen here.
Silent Serenity - Otter Cove in Acadia National Park of Maine. Late afternoon on an October day with low-tide reflections. The photograph was done by Alan Nyiri and seen in ACADIA PANORAMA(2008). This is only half of the total picture, it screamed fo

Roosevelt Campobello International Bridge. The original was a bit more boring than I expected so I fooled around a bit.
Roosevelt Campobello International Bridge. Yeah I know, this is the last one. (It is kinda cool though).

Maine Travel Photos Sept. 2009
These are photos from a family trip to Maine. It was my first time there and I was totally blown away by most all of the experience. We flew into Bangor, rented a van and got no more than a mile from the airport when we stopped at a place everyone but me know as THE place for clam chowder. I had never eaten chowder but in the spirit of the trip ordered up a bowl, it was great. We then headed out for our first destination, Belfast, a small town on the coast that boasts a large art community. After dropping off our stuff at the motel (which was very cool overlooking the water) we headed for town. The shops were pretty cool, the people nice and laid back and the view was breathtaking. I'll show you some shots from there. The next day we headed for the rental house located in the town of Steuben, along the way stopping for some nice views of the Penobscot, the bridge and Fort Knox, which overlooked the town of Bucksport. Yeah, I'll show you those places too. After that it was hitting the road toward Rt. 1. The house was really out of the way and not easy to find, but when we did we were all fired up and burnt out at the same time/ I'll show you the house too. The journey for the next week consisted of lots of miles and more beauty than I had seen in a long time. Mt. Desert Island, Acadia National Park, Schoodic Point, roadside grills fired up with lobsters, a drive up the coast to New Brunswick, Canada and Campobello Island and all the cool suff in between. This was a great trip for us and I hope these photos make you want to go to Maine and enjoy the "Way life should be". Enjoy~~
These are the first photos from the Maine trip. I'll be adding more each day, so check back to see the beauty of the great state of Maine. Hope you like them!!
