... honestly didn't care about. But she did...and didn't complain at all. Not once.
Lastly, I'm going to share a few photos of the trip that didn't make the first cut and were not previously published.
Thank you for following our trek across the country, We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and loved your "likes" and comments.
We plan on publishing a book of our "blog" and will enjoy it for years to come.

If you've never driven the roads in this part of the country you have no idea what a rough road is. If you are familiar with the roads here, you know what I'm talking about. In the northeast they don't even warn you when the road is going to be bad. Bad roads are just the norm. By bad roads I mean roads that will swallow the Mini. In fact something has broken or come loose, but I haven't figured ...
... and put where its supposed to be, its close enough and we even have some room left - big shock to me.
During one of my trips to Rockland, I parked as close to the Atlantic Ocean as I could without getting the tires wet - and will do the same thing in northern California to show the Pacific. See photo.
Access to Wifi will be hit and miss, we'll check in as we can - for the next 3 months.
Time to wake the dog.
Dixie and I went on yet another adventure to the Town of Owls Head, Maine capturing the true heart of this Coastal Community. Lobster. We learned that the Lobstermen of these parts pull out there Lobster traps and buoys just before winter because of the harsh weather conditions consistently staying in the teens and well into the negative temperatures. Most Lobstermen pull up these traps by hand hence why its absolutely understandable why they are all stacked on this ...
With the temp in the 20s all day we are READY to get going. Still getting things loaded in the RV and have scheduled eye doctor and dentist visits to be as sure as we can be that we are healthy and ready for several months 'out of Dodge'.
Our 2006 Navion H is ready to go, all systems are go and we have a place for everything we will be bringing.

Historical Traveler Reviews Claddagh Motel & Suites Rockport
Maine's Best Kept Secret - The Claddagh Motel has it all and one could not ask for better hosts than Alex and Siobhan. The Claddagh is not your average motel and in fact the word "motel" does not do this home away from home, any justice at all. We stayed in one of their suites for a long weekend in September 2006, which included two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and sun lounge, all beautifully decorated in New England style. Everything was so cozy, comfortable and clean. In addition, the outdoor heated swimming pool fully equipped with fresh towels was an added bonus and furthermore, breakfast included a real pot of tea and fresh scones. Our stay at the Claddagh was certainly a memorable one. So, whatever your pleasure and your destination is Maine, the Claddagh Motel is a must. We'll definitely be back. Two Thumbs Up!
Home from home
Had a really really lovely 2 week family holiday in a suite on the edge of the ocean with Alex and Siobhan - it sure is different to Texas!
Oustanding location close to the sea, lovely pool and really lovely walks close by. What really stands out is the warmth and hospitality of the team that owns and runs the motel and really made for a relaxing holiday in a lovely part of the world.
If you want a place to unwind and experience good old fahsioned hospitality I cannot think of a better location.
Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful
My family just returned today after staying at the Claddagh for three nights in one of their waterfront houses. I cannot say enough about the wonderful hospitality from the owners, Alex and Siobhan. I have stayed at many rental properties and have not found a place that had everything, and was so clean. This house has a beautiful view overlooking the water, and a short walk to enjoy the motel's heated pool. We could not have asked for more and we are already talking about returning next year. You and your family will have no complaints here!
what is it with these small hotels/motels in holiday areas? I too live in a holiday area, however I had to travel to Camden/Rockport area at the last minute. There really are no "chain' hotels in the area. I called the "claddagh" where I asked about any vacancies for the w/e. He told me he had fri/sat/sun free. I said I was delighted to take fri and sat. He said I had to take all three. When I asked about the off months if it was always 3 days he said he was in Florida in the sun and didn't care. More fool him. What goes around comes around...........
Our family just returned from visiting Maine's mid-coast region including Acadia National Park from July 19-25, 2006. One of the highlights of our trip was a six-night stay at the Claddagh Motel and Suites in Rockport.
Best Lodging in Camden area!
I have stayed in the Claddagh Suites for the past three summers. I simply wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Camden area. The proprietors of the motel/suites are lovely people, and really take the time to get to know their guests and show them some genuine hospitality. Likewise, their staff are exceptionally friendly and accommodating and treat you like family. The rooms are great, the pool is inviting. They serve Irish breakfast scones every morning. What else can you ask for?
A great place to stay. this is my motel of choice when visiting the Rockport/Rockland/ Thomaston area
We recently made a visit to Maine and as our work was near Rockport we stayed at Claddagh Motel & Suites. We have stayed at many other inns and hotels before but Claddagh is far above in all respects - be it in Irish hospitality of Alex and Siobhan be it in in cleanliness or be it in comfort. We have stayed both in their duoble and triple room ( which in fact can sleep four)
A True Gem
When we were looking for a place to stay in Rockport, Maine, our friends recommended this motel. What a pleasant surprise. The rooms are decorated each in their own unique way, tasteful, clean, and comfortable. The owners couldn't be more pleasant. The entire property is neat and well maintained. There are plenty of towels and chairs around the heated and spotless pool. A really great experience!!
