Lubec and West Quoddy Head Light :: Rices’ Radical Sabbatical


We had the opportunity hit the road again on Sunday. We headed east again in Maine to visit the easternmost town and point in the US, West Quoddy Head and Lubec, Maine. It is roughly 2 hours from the Bar Harbor area. It is known for the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, which was built in 1858 and is known for its distinctive red-and-white stripes. It overlooks Quoddy Narrows, a strait between Canada and the United States, and near the Bay of Fundy.

Another great feature of the area is the Roosevelt Campobello International Park, just over the bridge from Lubec into Canada. This park was FDR’s summer home. It is owned, funded, staffed, and administered by the peoples of both Canada and the United States. We did not go into the park as we did not bring our passports.

We did take some pictures with our phones and there is some video footage as well on our Facebook page. Enjoy! Oh, and a quick shot of Paul Bunyan and me in Bangor just for fun!
