We ended up in York Harbor, Maine, right on the edge of the world! I love this stuff.
The "Nubble" is a small, rocky island a short distance off the eastern point of Cape Neddick, about two miles north of the entrance to the York River and York Harbor. In 1602, explorer Bartholomew Gosnold met with local Indians on the island and dubbed it "Savage Rock."
The placement of a lighthouse on the Nubble had been recommended by many local mariners since 1807. An 1837 proposal was rejected on the grounds that there were already enough lights in the vicinity. Even after the wreck of the bark Isidore in 1842, north of the Nubble near Bald Head Cliff, it still took nearly four more decades before the lighthouse was established. The Isidore, according to legend, still reappears as a ghost ship with a phantom crew. source
Driving through the little streets of York. Charming, don't you think? After being put to sleep by the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks, we woke up refreshed and ready to head back home.
The Yellow Monkey! This is where we stayed and we relived those memories again! Then it was really time to head back to New York. Hope you've enjoyed this little trip with me.
