Cherryfield, Maine
Picture

Blueberry capitol of the world
Picture

That's our house, almost bottom center.
Picture

It's the one that looks like this.
Picture

Note the two buildings just over the bridge to the left
Picture

Here they are from ground level
Picture

Every evening we walk up one side of the river and down the other.
Picture

This river use to be GREAT for salmon fishing -- they're coming back.
Picture

Here's June with Alan and Marty on the bridge at the north end of our walk.
Picture

The river, viewed from that bridge.
Picture

Here's the dam in Cherryfield, a little further up the river.
Picture

Heading down river you find Milbridge where ...
Picture

Bruce and Kathy live. Here we join them ...
Picture

for cocktails with Marty and Alan.
Picture

June REALLY likes the ...
Picture

view from their deck.
Picture

and the goodies aren't bad either.
Picture

If we forget to call the lobsterman who delivers,
we head over here to the lobster pound.
Picture

These pictures were taken flying up the coast on July 13th.
Picture

Even driving up Route 1, you miss most of the coast.
Picture

Most of it is down all these peninsulas.
Picture

There's the airport at Rockport.
Picture

Here's the view from Pigeon Point, just west of Milbridge.
Picture

You can see a fisherman coming back in.
Picture

Here's the beach in Milbridge, it's not very sandy.
Picture

Looking back the other way.
Picture

Who knows who you'll run into along here.
Picture

A few miles west is Schoodic Point.
Picture

Where the tourist's in the know show up.
Picture

Here's one now.
Picture


Picture

I really love the Maine coast, on both foggy
Picture

... and sunny days.
Picture


Picture


Picture

Heading east from Cherryfield, the next town is Harrington.
Picture

Then comes Addison; here we're looking down at the Pleasant River.
Picture

And a little further, here we are along the coast ...
Picture

of Beal's Island.
Picture

There's a boat ramp in almost every town.
They're very steep because our tides are over 12 feet.
Picture

People keep their boats anchored in deeper water. And as you
see they use clothesline pulleys to keep their dinghys afloat.
Picture

Over where the sun comes up in the US is the town of Eastport.
Picture

Which still has quite a fishing fleet.
Picture

The Coast Guard keeps a boat here.
Picture

They teach them to fish from an early age ...
Picture

She just caught a sole (of shoe). She didn't think it was as funny
as I did, and really didn't appreciate my taking a picture of her catch.
Picture

Close by is Campobello Island, Canada where FDR's
summer "cottage" (34 rooms) is located.
Picture

At the end of Campobello is East Quaddy Light. You can only
get there on a low tide (now we're talking 22-28 foot tides.)
Picture

Access is up and down steel ladders, ...
Picture

across three islands.
Picture

Doesn't look like something you would see at a US tourist spot.
Picture

We're getting closer.
Picture

June better watch out, she's about to get run over.
Picture

Here's Walt Smith headed up.
Picture

Here's what the 28 foot tide looks like when it's coming in at St. Andrews.
Picture

Back in the US is West Quaddy Light.
Picture

Fall is coming to Cherryfield.
Picture

Here you can see the strings across the cranberries to mark each raker's lane.
Picture

Soon it's going to be time to head south.
Picture

The last hike up Pigeon Hill for this year.
