Last Day in Lubec, Maine – Sunday – June 30, 2013
We woke to more gray skies,
BUT it wasn’t raining:o))
Earlier this week, when we hiked at Boot Cove Preserve,
we met the only other hiker there.
She was from Maine and hikes this area often.
One of her favorite places to hike is in Cutler, just down the road.

As long as the rain stays away, we decided to hike the Black Point Brook Loop!!
So we packed a lunch and headed south to Rt 191 towards Cutler.
Yea, it was a bit foggy…. BUT no rain;o)
The trails are described as “a taste of wilderness along the Maine coast!”
The Black Point Brook Loop
would take us along the coast and return through the woods.
At about the half mile mark,
we connected with the Inland Trail.
We continued straight along the Coastal Trail…
over the stream and under the trees!!
We hiked about another mile before we reach the coastal lookout.
As we started down the rock steps for a closer view,
a Bald Eagle flew out of the fog!!!
The views at the bottom of the rock steps left us speechless……..
The sea was angry and the fog was thick.
We attempted to continue along the Coastal Trail,
So we backed tracked to the car for a total of 3.28 miles.
We were disappointed that we didn’t get to hike the coast,
but now we have a good reason to return:o)
We decided not to drive directly back to the campground.
Instead we hung a right at Boot Cove Road toward Quoddy Head State Park.
On the corner, where we turned, was an abandoned General Store.
Right behind the store was the Funeral Home…. interesting!?!?!
At Quoddy Head State Park, hiking conditions were about the same as we had just left:o((
So we headed down the steps to explore the beach for a little while:o))
It may be our last visit this trip,
but I feel certain we will walk these steps again:o))
Back at the motorhome, we had our packed lunch and chilled for the afternoon.
We still had one more interesting adventure before we leave in the morning!!
The parking lot was pack and we had to park along the road.
What was all the excitement about at Uncle Kippy’s???
Tonight they were featuring...
I don’t have a video camera to bring you the real fun this group has,
but here is a link to a U-tube video if you would like to learn more about the band.
What a special ending to our visit to Lubec :o))
We’ll be back!!!
at 9:00 PM
