Come see us on Campobello!
Our van is picking you up at any place on Campobello and Lubec. We do custom private tours and groups are welcome.
Our "Step-on Guide Service" has been popular for bus groups as well as private tours and we continue offering this great way to see Campobello in 2019. Our guide will meet you at any location on Campobello Island and you will enjoy all sights and hear about our rich history. All standard tours will last about 3hrs. If you are in a Motor coach or are a motor coach operator, your tour will be shorter as coaches cannot access the Natural area of the Roosevelt Park.
Specialty tours, also in combination with Tours to St.Andrews can be tailored to your personal wishes.
Coming from the U.S. you will need your passport and please remember that Campobello is on Atlantic Time.
(Eastern Time+1hr.)
For reservations please call or email a day prior to your intended visit. Any later attempt to make a reservation may go unsuccessful as we might be on a tour just when you call.
Thanks for visiting and be welcome to the island.

PEACE

There isn't really much to say about this Sunday morning other than it was frosty and that the wind had stopped. Ah…a morning without wind. Peace!

I loaded Molly into the Jeep and went to Herring Cove. There is no better place on Campobello to enjoy a morning walk in the rising sun, and it is only 3 minutes from our home. The tide was down but had started to return. The sand was still wet providing a hard surface to walk on.

While I strolled along the waters edge, Molly preferred to prowl along the upper edge where the yellow grass begins. We walked on and on and almost reached the edge of the Roosevelt Park border, before we turned around. Sun was glittering on the calm sea. The only sound being the rhythmic splash of the waves rolling onto the sandy beach. I noticed that the beach was incredibly clean. There was very little debris along the flotsam. Seemed like the winter storms had done a great job cleaning up the beach. At least no damage here at Herring Cove.

Walking back to the car I noticed a growing cloud cover moving in. Already the light had changed.  Actually it was a great light for taking more pictures. Old  dried up trees are standing here close to the beach.

They probably died decades ago. Behind the beach lies Lake Glensevern. It is home to beavers and many water fowls. Once it was the swimming pool for the Roosevelt family who had a dock here. It is the only water body where water temperatures reach above 68F in the summer. The water is brackish as the storms occasionally push sea water over top of the beach and into the lake.

The tide was coming up fast now. My foot prints along the waters edge were already covered and under water.

What a great walk this was.

Thanks for visiting!
