Replica of the Mayflower.

The current updated dinghy dock.

The first dinghy dock in America. "The Plymouth Rock."
When the early settlers rowed their small boats into
shore from the Mayflower they landed on Plymouth Rock.
The rock is half submerged at high tide.

Running from Earl!

Well, as you can see by our location, (but only if you click on 'Our Location'), we have moved inland to get away from the winds. We never expected to to have to deal with a hurricane this far north. The upside is that the water is freezing here, so by the time it gets here it will be smaller. Meanwhile, we're in a lovely place--- lots and trees, and thoughtfully there is a space for our TV to receive satellite. Can't decide if trees or the stuff people leave around is more dangerous. Oh well---- here we are!

More exploring of Maine.

We are back at Blue Hill Falls.
This time the tide is rising.

This picture was taken during a falling tide.
Notice the rock on the left side .

Exploring the Acadia area of Maine

Sailboat on Blue Hill Bay.

Water entering Blue Hill Bay at Blue Hill Falls. This is an outgoing tide, but isn't at maximum flow. There are standing waves 3 feet high on the maximum ebb. We need to go back when the tide is incoming to see the difference. Looking across at the rocks, you can see from the color how high the tide gets! They say it's at least a 10 foot difference!

The bridge at Blue Hill Falls. The water is
rushing over the falls at low tide.

Northeast Harbor, Maine.

Need a house?

Timberland Acres RV Park

We have decided to stay at this park until the end of August. That way we'll have a "home-base" and we can explore in the car. It appears from the above picture that I like the idea!!

Tanglewood. Wish we could stay longer- Carole King and James Taylor over July 4th weekend.

Seneca Falls, NY

The Womens Rights Movement started
here in Seneca Falls.

This Lock 3 on the Seneca-Cayuga Canal. This is where the "Falls" from the name Seneca "Falls" should be. Must be a dry year.... Seneca minus the Falls!
The spillway is where the falls had been.

Phelps, NY

This sign says it all. This town found a way around the energy problem. Our plan is to check out the Finger Lakes, and Seneca Falls, where the first women's convention was held, and also was a stop on the Underground Railroad.

KOA Lake Erie, Westfield, NY

Here is a picture of our rig at KOA Lake Erie.

Rosie got a chance to run around Ottaway Park across the street from the KOA and directly on Lake Erie.

This is Barcelona Harbor on Lake Erie.
There is a marina and a restaurant at the Harbor.

We stayed at Pier-Lon Campground near Medina, Ohio for four days. We visited mom and dad a several times and had dinner at Diann's Sunday night. It has been a long time since we were all together in one place.

Winton Woods Campground, Cincinnati, OH

Captain Bob's Magic "Where-in-the-world-are-we-going?" Ride stopped today at Winton Woods Campground in Cincinnati, Ohio. If the captain would listen more closely to the navigator, we wouldn't end up taking an extra hour to arrive at our destination. However, we would then miss the lovely tour of the next neighborhood to be torn down. The Captain has a homing device implanted in his brain for such neighborhoods!

Winton Woods is a county park in the North-East section of town. The campground is new, quiet, and on a lake with all amenities. It's actually very pretty, and peaceful.

This is the view from our campsite. If you squint, you can see the lake past the road!

On our way here from Florida we stayed at River Park Campground near Valdosta, GA and North Chattanooga KOA near Cleveland, TN.

For those who track our progress, please notice that the "Spot" still reads Blue Moon. I haven't yet figured out how to change it to Mixed Nuts. Film at 11.
