Schoodic Peninsula Rocks

This area is near Bar Harbor, but is a peninsula in its own right. The rock formations at the ocean are remarkable, and people drive out just to see the waves crashing on the rocks.

We visited this area on our way back from Quoddy Point, where the US and Canada come together at the "top" of Maine.

Fishing Boats and Fog

Taken at the harbor in Bar Harbor, Maine. The cruise ship "Maasdam" was in the harbor, so we drove to town to see the ship. These fishing boats (probably lobster boats) looked quite nice against the fog and nearby islands.

Taken near Jordan Pond, Bar Harbor, Maine. We had a few decent days and did some driving around the Acadia National Park. This "pond" is a glacial lake that is very scenic. The trees near the lake were in their brand new, very very green foliage.

Submarine Museum Entrance

We visited the museum in Groton, Connecticut. Fascinating displays, very patriotic. They have the Nautilus, the first nuclear-powered submarine there, and you can walk (and climb) through it. The large circles you see are the markers for the diameter of the current Ohio-class submarine (larger), and the first US submarine (smaller). The USP truck helps to show the scale of things.

Had this during our visit to New Jersey in May. Rutt's Hut is a real New Jersey kind of place. No credit cards, the bar looks like it did 50 years ago. Great hot dogs (rippers), chili, and onion rings.

Rutt's Hut Lunch

Our nephew (inlaw) took us to Rutt's Hut in Clifton, New Jersey. The food was amazing. They are most famous for the "rippers", hot dogs finished in the deep fat fryer.

One of the wooden statues in a "playhouse" at Longwood Gardens. We spent the day here, courtesy of friends we had met cruising. The gardens are wonderful, and the weather was excellent.

Dogwood Blossoms

Taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We drove our 40-foot motorhome on the Parkway without incident. Of course, there was very little traffic. We might have had a harder time of it in the fall, with all the beautiful leaf color.

We have been "following" the dogwoods up from Florida.
