Sleeping by the Sea

Gleason Cove, Me. 

Right now I am parked by the ocean not far from Pleasant Point, Me.

It's not actually the ocean, it's the Bay of Fundy and the Canadian border, drawn somewhere in the water out there in the pitch dark, is not far.DSC_1924_copy

I'll not do any trick photography like I did in the Walmart lot Saturday night, because I don't want to attract attention with a flash.

I didn't see any signs that said I couldn't drive down here and sleep for a few hours -- or the night -- so I just did.

I chose this road because I knew it led to a public access spot on the beach and because there is a Verizon phone signal, which means my Samsung phone's mobile hot spot will send this note all the way to Pittsburgh.

For most of the trip up US 1 from Deer Isle and Ellsworth to Machias and Perry, I was out of Verizon's vaunted coverage. It's totally dark -- except the glow from my laptop's screen -- but I'm sure it's perfectly safe here.

Meanwhile, here are some more photos from beautiful Stonington and Deer Isle:DSC_1900
