Rockland and Lighthouse in Maine on $20 a day
This is part of an 18 week, 7,532 mile, Vanabode road trip detailed in the
book from Amazon
We park alone in the shade at seven a.m. in a small city park in Rockland. The harbors and marinas come alive all around us.
We walk the waterfront then out onto a nearly one-mile long rock barrier structure called the Rockland Breakwater. The pier is relatively flat and constructed of thousands of car-sized rocks mined and installed to puzzle fit together perfectly.
Above: It takes us nearly thirty minutes to reach the end of the pier where we walk around and touch a decrepit old lighthouse.
We devour salads and fruit and nuts in the shady park back on land. We climb on top of the table and eat cross-legged to avoid the biting mosquitoes, black flies, and gnats at grass level.
Then we head downtown to see the art galleries and retail shops we surveyed earlier this morning.
