... its place. We did the lion's share this morning.
I am particularly thankful to Dolly who deserved this trip, who left her full time job and while she didn't physically drive even one mile, she watched my driving like a hawk and reminded me of speed limits, things and people in the roadway, managed the maps and GPS and was a champ throughout. Not many women would sleep in the back of a pickup, put up with my ******** and go places and do ...

... freeway"option. After a very frustrating day of travel we arrived in Belfast, Maine. Although we are on Penobscot Bay, it's still the Atlantic. Belfast is a really cute little fishing/resort town. We have a nice motel just outside of town. Since we have no more folkssport walks until Lansing, Michigan, we get to sleep in tomorrow. In the afternoon we'll head up to Bar Harbor to stay for two nights. ...

... 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.

Later!

Low Tide & Lobster in Owls Head, Maine

A travel blog entry by amcord

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 Samoset Resort On The Ocean Rockport

    Great kept secret

    from

    Just came back from 3 days at the Samoset as part of our Maine vacation. We have nothing but great things to say about the resort!

    Our room was superb--overlooking the golf course and the ocean--very roomy , clean, very large bathroom, newly renovated--

    The staff was very friendly and accommodating. In fact, one day we played tennis and they hadn't brought out the water cooler yet. Without even asking, someone from the hotel brought us 4 bottles of water when we were done. I call that service!

    The spa and workout room is top notch for a resort

    there's babysitting service, a camp, and an indoor pool. The outdoor pool is not heated and cold for adults but kids looked like they were enjoying it.

    We didn't play golf but the course looked beautiful and the golf house gave my children clubs to use to practice chipping and putting on a specially designated area--

    We did not eat lunch or dinner at the restaurants in the Hotel. Go into Camden for dinner but not Rockport !

    We would definitely come back every year if we lived closer.

    Fantastic!!!

    from

    Just spent a week at the Samoset for a family vacation and had a wonderful time! The rooms were clean and spacious. The views from our deck were beautiful!!! Margie at the front desk was a delight and Chris who brought us to our room was enthusiastic and knowledgable. We dined at Marcel's one night and had a delicious dinner. The caesar salad tableside was delish! The Steak Diane will long be remembered. The only down side to the evening was the service was beyond leisurely and the wine steward was slow filling glasses...at one point he filled all but one of the glasses and it happened to be the guy that was picking up the check! Dinner in the Breakwater Cafe was good. Great choices at reasonable prices. Pizza wasn't very good.

    Grounds are beautiful. Great activities for the entire family. Would DEFINITELY GO BACK!!!

    Terrible dining room, poor service

    from

    I've visited the Samoset often as I'm a native of the area. This weekend's visit, however, was absolutely terrible. The food was overpriced and poorly prepared, and the service was utterly inept. Our waiter appeared to be a college student who'd had no training. He was a klutz and constantly interrupted our conversations. I've enjoyed dining at the Samoset in the past, but it is under different management now. You can find a much better breakast at a much better price at any one of a number of area restaurants. Breakfast for four -- three mediocre omelets and a waffle, four cups of coffee and two juices -- came out to $55 before tax and tip. The restaurant offers a breakfast buffet for $12.95 a person. It looked awful.

    What a disppointment...

    from

    I received my hotel confirmation in the mail and my last name was misspelled so I called the hotel to have it corrected. This was clearly not done as when we arrived to the hotel and used my last name, I was told that we had no reservation and we must have made a mistake. I asked if the reservation could have been misspelled and I was told 'no' and I should go out into the pouring rain to retrieve my confirmation.

    I did so and our reservation miraculously appeared with another spelling (the one I thought I had corrected). When making my reservation, I had two very specific requests: 1. I did not want to be on the ground floor; 2. I did not want a smoking room. I even paid the upgrade for the "ocean view." Before even retrieving my keys, I confirmed that my requests had been met and I was told that I was both on the ground floor and in a smoking room. When I insisted that I needed to at least be moved out of the smoking room, a very rude manager interrupted and told me that had I made my requests with my reservation, they would have been taken care of. I did! Our problems continued from there...unimpressive and poorly furnished accommodations that had clearly not been thoroughly cleaned or checked for maintenance deficiencies, outdated restaurant with poor food quality, cold and rude staff, etc, etc. We ended up leaving early and I would never go back.

    Romantic weekend a 16th charmer

    from

    My wife and myself spend every anniversy for the past 16 years at local resorts. This is the first time we tryed your resort and we loved it!!

    see you next year.

    Worst food ever

    from

    The resort was nice, beautiful setting. Had dinner in the worst resturant ever. The service was only bad compaired to the food. Over priced and they didnt really care if we liked it or not. Wont eat there, and only can afford to golf there if your PGA

    Just wonderful

    from

    We decided in Nov. to go to the Samoset Resort for their New Year's Eve

    party and package. It was about a 4 hour ride and well worth it. The

    resort is beautiful, 4 story high, built to blend into the scenery. The

    staff is very friendly and efficient. There is a calm, relaxing feeling

    as you walk around the resort.

    We had a onebedroom oceanview suite with a sliding door looking out onto the ocean, just beautiful. The main drawback was the room was connecting to someone we didn't know and we could clearly hear their conversations and too much more.

    The restaurants are incredible. Marcel's is a 5star restaurant, the

    prices are high but very well worth it. And you actually do get what

    you pay for. The Breakwater Cafe had mainly bar food during the day and

    terrific seafood dinners. Again, you get huge helpings and the prices

    were reasonable. I would return to the Samoset in a heartbeat.

    Was disappointed

    from

    Just returned from a business meeting. Stayed at the Samoset. For the money it really was not worth it. We did not stay in the Time Share portion. Probably better than our room. The doors were falling apart. The toilet seat would not stay up and the bathroom was not the cleanest. The roomed smelled of smoke, even though it was a nonsmoking room. The wood all around the balcony was rotted. We thought it was better to stay in BAR HARBOR at the resort there.

    Wonderful!

    from

    Stayed at Samoset a few weeks ago for one week. First impression: beautiful setting, buildings, etc. The service was extraordinary, and the one-bedroom suite we stayed in was luxurious, with an amazing view of the ocean. Some advice: take the guided golf-cart tour (they do it 2 nights a week)--this is a great way to become acquainted with the hotel. The outdoor pool and jacuzzi were great, but the indoor pool was closed for maintainence throughout our entire stay. Exercise facilities were wonderful, and the food was great, but rather slow service at dinnertime--go to the neighboring town of Camden for dinner. The feature that makes Samoset stand at from the others is the jetty. It is 7/8 of a mile long, has a lighthouse on the end (which is open 2 days/week for tours), and is an extremely popular spot. This is a wonderful place to stay!

    Mostly good some bad

    from

    Just back from 1 week at time share at Samoset. Pool, golf course, tennis all great except cost for golf $100. Accomodations good except 2 problems, heating system in bed room which would go off and on all nite and insulation above you would hear walking and any loud noise. People friendly and wonderful view from your room. Overall above average unless you needed heat on all nite.
