|View along Route Nine, in Amherst|
After arriving in Lubec at the motel, I settled in and when John arrived and after he settled in, we went to scout the local sites again to decide the itinerary for the upcoming workshop. Our first stop was West Quoddy Light Station, and then we traveled across the Roosevelt international Bridge onto Campobello Island, New Brunswick. Our first stop was Eagle Hill Bog. Eagle Hill Bog is one of the many bogs in the Roosevelt Campobello International Park. Approximately one third of the 2800 acre natural area in the park is composed of raised heath-covered bogs. The reason we stopped there. It is a great place for macro photography with a variety of different specialized plants including pitcher plants, sheep laurel, swamp pink orchids, cloud-berry and many other interesting plants.
