Lubec and Quoddy Light House

We stayed here after visiting Campobello Island (the Roosevelts’ vacation home on the US-Canadian border—Virginia is an Eleanor Roosvelt fan). It was a rainy day and Lubec didn’t impress. At about 7:45 pm, we went into town because we had seen an ice cream place, but it was closed. Settled on an inn instead. We had to wait 15 minutes, no big deal. When we sat down you hadf two dessert choices—blueberry ice cream or apple crisp with vanilla ice cream. Kelly and I ordered the apple crisp. The waitress asked if we wanted it warmed up. We both said yes. So it was a surprise when both dishes showed up cold. The bigger surprise was that I got a big bowl and Kelly got a small cup. We switched servings and when the check showed up—you guessed it—we were charged the same for both. Thankfully we weren’t charged extra for (un)heated. The place was Cohill’s Inn. If you ever find yourself, god help you, in Lubec, try Frank’s instead. Or get your ice cream BEFORE 6 pm.

That said, the East Quoddy Light House was a gem, as well as the easternmost spot in the US.
