Day 32 – Cape Cod’s Sandy Shores

Day 32 of Year Long Roadtrip Following Scenic Byways in the USA

The weathermen were correct…a storm was predicted and came through for most of the night and the morning.  The wind howled as the waves crashed against the shore until finally…pow…a transformer blew and the power was out!  George has a gas stove though, so we still enjoyed blueberry pancakes, and I made the coffee just in time!

The storm quieted around late morning. George and I walked out to the rocky shore where only a few days ago the ocean was calm, the sky was sunny, and the visibility reached for miles.  What a transformation, the waves pounded the rocks as ocean spray rocketed into the air.  The sky was so foggy, I could hardly see the islands just across the way.  It wasn’t like the Banzai Pipeline in Hawaii, but I can imagine Thunder Hole in Acadia National Park was rumbling.  I’m glad I had a travel day scheduled today, so I didn’t have to sightsee in this weather!  Instead, it became a Cape Cod museum day.

Day 31 – Magnificent Maine Coast Part 3

Magnificent Maine Coast

After another cozy evening at Walmart, I set out to try blueberry coffee.  When I saw the option for the first time, I thought, GROSS, but after second thoughts, I’m in Maine, and I should at least try it.  I didn’t find any at Rockland Café, but I did enjoy a bacon, egg, and toast breakfast at a local joint before dropping the geocoin in a cache near a JCPenney parking lot.  I picked up another coin to drop elsewhere and then ventured to the Rockland Breakwater Lighthous on the Maine coast.

Day 29 – Magnificent Maine Coast Part 2

Day 29 of Year Long Roadtrip Following Scenic Byways in the USA

I survived my stay at Walmart last night.  I don’t recall ever spending the night in a parking lot, thus I was slightly nervous.  Despite a few other campers being around and security cameras everywhere, I didn’t pop the top to VANilla last night just in case I needed to drive away quickly.  The dogs and I fit snuggly and warmly together downstairs!  I think VANilla may stay 10 degrees warmer with the top down which is nice when it is 39 degrees outside on the Maine Coast.

George’s House

After a breakfast of blueberry pancakes, courtesy of George, George and I took a 1.5 mile walk around the neck that led us over the rocks, along the beach, and on a boardwalk through a bird sanctuary.  The rocks we passed inspired Winslow Homer who owned a home and studio nearby in the late 1800’s to paint The Canon.  It is said that during high tide, the water sprays from the rocks like a canon, thus the name.
