Schoodic Point–Acadia National Park

 Scoodic TJ 1

It was a nice, sunny and laid back day at KOA Woodlands when my friend Tom ask me to accompany him on an afternoon away. We started with a lunch break at Jordan’s. It is a very well attended ice cream, burger, fried foods joint with a separate dining room. You order at a window and wait for your number to be called. I ordered as I would have in the 50’s. Cheeseburger, onion rings and a chocolate shake. Tom ordered a cheeseburger basket with fries and an ice tea. We swapped rings for fries as we ate excellent cheeseburgers. Below are a few pictures to show the Maine coast.

A nice place to read without interruptions.

A nice place to contemplate the horizon.

A nice place to get away to.

It looks like this when the surf is up.

People have been known to want the wave spray in the background with themselves in the foreground. Stand with their back to the water, smile and wait for a big wave to break and hope the camera operator can catch the action. What happens … the wave breaks so high it washes them off the rock to die in the pounding surf,
