Carrie came to visit for a few days and one afternoon we decided to go to Shackford Head State Park for a hike. We ended up walking every trail. These trails are very primitive and not marked often enough to keep us from getting lost a few times. Luckily Carrie was armed with several electronic devices that showed us where we were on a little digital screen (on her phone, no less). It is very rugged terrain, up and down very steep inclines through the woods and rocks that tower over Deep Cove. I've forgotten now how many miles we went, but we were gone for a couple of delightful hours. The weather was perfect.......cool and sunny, with just enough fog over the water to make the ocean views particularly beautiful. The woods were amazingly free of insects(other than the fire ants that cover the ground all over Eastport).
When I suggested a walk in the woods, I didn't anticipate spending the whole afternoon in such a beautiful place. We had a great time. It's a wonderful memory for us both.
