Schoodic Point Picnic
Homecation Day 8. It was a gorgeous day so we packed a picnic and took it to the Schoodic Peninsula which is part of Acadia National Park where we were on Day 6. The entrance to Schoodic is in Winter Harbor – about 30 minutes from home. (Click on images for a larger view.)
This is the Winter Harbor Lighthouse with Turtle Island and Cadillac Mountain in the background.

On our way home we drove through Prospect Harbor. This is the Prospect Harbor Lighthouse built in 1891.
We made a detour through Corea and found these geese lounging along the harbor.
Corea – one of Maine’s most picturesque village and harbor.
