We drove from Mt Desert Island in Acadia through the Schoodic Penninsula and took some great pictures of the waves crashing on the rocky coast. This is an area of Acadia National Park that we had never visited before. It consists of a one way scenic road with lots of places to stop and take in the scenery. Well worth the drive!
After driving along the Peninsula, we traveled on Route 1 until encountering the FDR International Bridge.
We camped at Herring Cove Provincial Park not far from the beach. RVs were allowed in the wooded area, while tent campers were allowed right on the beach. We were wishing we had packed the tent! The beach was a chocolate color, sand and pebbles. And was empty most of the time!
Seals swam in the waters around the lighthouse, while many whales were sighted off the East Quoddy Lighthouse road on the other end of the island. We spent our time viewing the whales, eagles, and seals. Commercial whale watching boats were prevalent, but you could actually see the whales right from the side of the road!
