The two RV Gypsies in
Lubec, Maine
August 20, 2011
Lubec is a town in Washington County, Maine, United States and is the easternmost town in the contiguous United States. However, the Aleutian Islands in Alaska extend into the eastern hemisphere, and if territories are included, Point Udall in the U.S. Virgin Islands extends farther east.

The town is home to Quoddy Head State Park.

On the way to Lubec, Maine the two RV Gypsies photographed a few unusual photos.................

Wild blueberry sales were everywhere in Maine this time of year. Below is a building shaped like a wild blueberry.

Sunset Point Trailer Park
The two RV Gypsies checked into Sunset Point Trailer Park on Route 189 in Lubec, Maine. The lady at the office was a very friendly person and a joy to talk to. This was not a big campground but it was beautiful and had a breathtaking view of a saltwater bay from every site. The two RV Gypsies got to choose if they wanted to back the RV into to the site, or drive the RV in frontwards. (This is unusual) They drove in frontwards so they could look out their front window at the bay.

After eating, Karen left Lee at the table (he still had to pay the bill) and she went to get better photos of the seals. See Lee still sitting at the restaurant patio - While Karen is on the jetty taking photos of the seals.

At the eastern edge of the United States, a candy-striped lighthouse protects vessels from the rocky shore and shoals of West Quoddy Head, while looking across the water to Liberty Point on Campobello Island (about 1.25 miles away) and Grand Manan (about 9 miles away). The current tower has 15 stripes--8 red and 7 white.

The two RV Gypsies at the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse in Lubec, Maine - the easternmost point of the contiguous United States and the closest point to Europe from a point in the fifty States. West Quoddy Head overlooks Quoddy Narrows, a strait between Canada and the United States. Since 1808, there has been a lighthouse there to guide ships through the waterway. The current one, with distinctive red-and-white stripes, was built in 1858.
