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.)

On our way home we drove through Prospect Harbor. This is the Prospect Harbor Lighthouse built in 1891.

Gesse Corea Harbor

We made a detour through Corea and found these geese lounging along the harbor.

Corea – one of Maine’s most picturesque village and harbor.

Only two more days of my homecation left. I’m trying not to think about it!

  1. I wish it was that clear when we went there, but we still had beautiful weather. We stayed at a campground on the Fjord in Acadia and loved it, perfect place to paddle and loved riding our bikes on the trails.
