Maine for the Puffins - June 2008

Went to Maine to see the puffins at Machias Seal Island, plus previously unvisited lighthouses. Traveled from Portland to Campobello Island and back in five days, seeing 17 new lighthouses, a ton of breeding puffins, and some new places and islands I had not visited before during trips with Howard or by myself. It was muggy, buggy and often foggy, but ALWAYS fun, and I think I took some of my best pictures ever!

I was bound and determined to find Boulder Beach in Acadia.  I did, but it was not as special as I had thought...

I took a ferry from Bass Harbor to Swans Island, a 40 minute trip.  I was one of the few there for the 7 AM trip.

The Burnt Coat Harbor lighthouse was in bad shape, with the insulation hanging out in the back.  It needs restoration BADLY.

The lighthouse at Prospect Harbor.  Howard and I found it when we visited Acadia before, but I wanted to visit it again.

On the way to Lubec, I saw this lighthouse replica sitting in a pond by the side of the road.

In Lubec, I stayed for $90 in a converted Coast Guard station. Wonderful!  In Stonington, I stayed at Boyce's Motel.
