seen on my morning run along route 1 between whiting and lubec. i sort-of expected to see a black bear trundling through the field.
blueberry crop is big business for washington county and i think still one of the largest blueberry exporting counties in the country.
this is one of those times when part of me doesn’t want to stop what i’m doing and i almost ran past then photographer brain takes over and makes hike into the field and in the end i’m glad it did 🙂
camp is on an idyllic, quiet spring fed lake with trout and loons in whiting maine close to the coast. it’s been the family camp for something like 70 years. odin’s great grandfather built the rock wall around the cove in the 1960s that’s still standing today.
camp is on the eastern tip of washington county, maine which is sometimes called the sunrise county because it claims the west quoddy head, which is the easternmost point in the continental u.s.. so, theoretically the sunrise first hits the shores of the u.s. not far from camp.
and why am i up at sunrise? because we’re starting the 1,600 mile drive back to wisconsin! hope to make at least 1,100 miles today.
