Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Part 2 – Tuesday – June 25, 2013
Part 2 covers our afternoon activities on the Campobello Island.
If you missed our morning activities on the island, click here!!
Roosevelt Campobello International Park and Herring Cove Provincial Park are side by side and share Glenseven Road, a carriage road. There are several carriage roads and we wanted to bike them, but because of the heat we decided we would be better off driving them.
We followed Glenseven Road to Con Robinson’s Point.
It is a beautiful pebbled beach with gorgeous views!!
It was frigid, barely 60 degrees!!
However the worst part was getting back up the beach…
Each time you stepped, your foot just sinks and slides back down the hill…
Kind of like being on a pebble treadmill ;o((
When I FINALLY got back up the hill, we just stood there and listened.
Wish I had a way to take a picture of the sound the ocean makes
when it crashes against the beach and rolls all those pebbles.
Next, we made a left onto Liberty Point Road.
We passed Yellow Bank before arriving at Liberty Point.
Bill headed out to the lookout while I was wandering around the shore.
(click on any photo to enlarge)
When I got out there, he was staring intently with his binoculars at something??
Bill insisted it was an ICEBERG!!!
See the little while dot next to his shoulder?!?!?
He still thinks it is an iceberg…
Finally when I got home and zoomed in as far as possible,
However, Bill insists it is an iceberg and he’s sticking with that story!!!
Now for the beautiful views at Liberty Point.
We plan to hike there soon. It is just down the road from the campground:o)
Looking along the shoreline… how blue is that water?!?!!!!
More rock, More islands….
look what flew out of the trees…
After that delightful encounter, we headed back Liberty Point Drive.
We made a quick stop at Lower Duck Pond.
Next we hung a left onto Fox Hill Drive and drove to Cranberry Point.
We could see Spark Plug Lighthouse and FDR International Bridge to Lubec, ME.
As we pulled out of the parking lot,
a Ruffed Grouse was walking across the road!!
First time I have ever seen this bird:o))
We had a wonderful day exploring Campobello Island!!!
They are repairing the bridge so it is one lane.
While we waited our turn to cross,
A quick check through US Customs and we were headed back to the campground.
We had a wonderful day on the island and hope to get back once more while we are here.
