07/19/2005: Island hopping to New Brunswick
Lubec, ME: We had breakfast at a nice local joint called Murphy's Village Restaurant to try their fried dough.
Then we went over the bridge to Canada at the Campobello International Park, F.D. Roosevelt's Summer Cottage complex.
This park is the only national park in the world to be in one country, yet managed jointly by another. Great historical tours, especially after our visit to the FDR memorial in D.C. last week.
We almost saw "Scenic" views at foggy lookouts.
Then we took the toll ferry to (really cute) Deer Island and the free ferry to NB. The first was a small ferry barge pushed by a tow boat. The second was a fancy, high-bridged, modern, specially designed vehicle mover. We drove in circles in the fog around St. John trying to find any motel, finding full ones, and finally settling for the pricey Econolodge ($120).
It had a kitchenette, and WiFi, so it wasn't so bad. I rested, while Karen went out into the fog and under-construction, randomly one-way streets to try to buy a can of soup.
