Travel Tips for Lubec
Relaxation and Tranquility
Too many to list.... Slow down...Hear the ocean on the shoreline, smell the salt in the air, view raucous seagulls, with eagles soaring overheard, lobster boats bobbing, panoramic vistas, lighthouses, and homemade ice cream within walking distance of a freshly made plum bonbon.
Take the Bridge to New Brunswick, Canada
Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada, is just east of Lubec, Maine USA. The only way to get to Campobello by land is across the Franklin D. Roosevelt International Bridge. If you were to travel to Campobello Island from Canada you would have to either fly or take two ferries, first from the Canadian mainland to Deer Island, and them from Deer Island to Campobello Island.
This quiet and remote corner of Canada is certainly worth seeing. On Campobello Island you will find the summer home of former United States President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Herring Cove Provincial Park, the stunning East Quoddy Lighthouse, Mulholland Lighthouse
and lots of beautiful scenery. Overlooking the legendary Bay of Fundy, with the highest and lowest tides in the world, the entire area is a haven for wildlife.
A passport is required to enter into Canada from the United States.

The park map gives easy directiions to get to it. One of the plants I found interesting was the pitcher plant. You could see the water standing inside the plant ... and my reading indicates that it also catches insects.
Walk through an "enchanted" forest
As we hiked the trails at Quoddy Head State Park we came to an unusual (to me) forest. It seemed almost "enchanted". The trees were all the light colored (we think birches) and covered with a type of moss. With the sun filtering through .....
