Our long drive was worth it.

Glorious sunsets, delicious smoked salmon on a stick, and a couple of beers at a secluded, undeveloped island beach. Ahhh... The simplicity and pure joy of camping makes us so happy we can barely contain ourselves. Add a waxing moon and wow! Sorry no pics of the moon on the beach. My SLR can't do that, even with a tripod. But take my word for it. Moonlight glinting on the waves with a cliff to the north and a perfectly crescent beach, makes for an awesome place to rest your tired body after a long drive while sipping a cold brew. Pretty darn cool......

In the morning, we breakdown camp and head to Roosevelt's Campobello International Park. Well run by informed historians, and free admission, this park is a must-see. The property has loads of trails, gorgeous water views, a visitors center and two homes

One is the famous Franklin & Eleanor's summer home. Referred to as a "cottage" it has 18 bedrooms overlooking Passamaquoddy Bay to Eastport, Maine. 

The other, larger home is the Hubbard Cottage, who were the Roosevelt's neighbors and friends. I could have lived on the porch alone. A delightful victorian setting, where they run a program "Tea with Eleanor." We didn't time that right for this trip, but maybe when I go back.....
