An Update

Our last night in Maine we stayed at the Boothbay Resort - just cottages, but next year there will be a brewery and restaurant.
Then on to Natick, MA to stay with Lenny and Lyn Bernheimer.  Bart played squash and later we went to Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, where there was a Dale Chihuly exhibit.  This may not look too big, but it was the size of a very large canoe.

Fundy National Park, New Brunswick

After stopping in to see Jim and Eileen on our way off PEI, we drove to Fundy National Park by way of Shediac (home of the world's largest lobster).
Then on to Fundy, where the tides are amazing.  100 billion gallons of water enter and leave the Bay of Fundy twice every 25 hours.  The tides rise by as much as 35 feet.  I took this picture 4:21pm AST.
I took this picture at 4:55pm AST.
Later we hiked to Dickson Falls, which was ethereal in the early evening maritime mist.

More PEI

We have driven around about 1/3 of the island,  Here are some pics. We stopped at a farm stand for some lettuce and the owner went to pick it.

Lunch at the Chowder House.

A couple of  lighthouses.
Scariest license plate ever!
We had a lovely lobster dinner at Jim and Eileen Thorne's.  Jim is my cousin, Aunt Mildred and Uncle Jay's son. It's been about 35 years since we've seen each other.  It was great to see them and to talk about so many things and people from our past.  They live in an adorable house in Stanhope, PEI.  Can't wait to come back and see them again.

New Brunswick, Canada

We left Maine and entered Canada by way of Campobello Island, where we visited the Roosevelt International Park. Rather than go back through customs twice (into Maine and back out in 2 hours) we decided to go the 2-ferry route - Campobello to Deer Island and then a 1/2 hour drive to the other end of Deer Island for a ferry to mainland New Brunswick.

We were talking about Bercy and the Bruce Springstein concert!
We had a terrific weekend. 
We arrived in Newport for the International Tenis Hall of Fame Induction.  Our friend, Peachy Kellmeyer, and Andre Agassi. were inducted this year.  At 1:15am Friday our hotel was evacuated because the fire alarms went off for about 10 minutes.
On Friday we played tennis on the grass courts and I had to take this picture of Todd Martin and Bart.
Some picture highlights of the weekend.
That's Peachy.
Steffi and their children (in hats).
John Isner is 6'9" and this little ball boy had to stand on tip-toe to hand John a towel.

Flowers, Vegetables and Boats

On our way out of Falmouth yesterday, we stopped at Jen's house to check out her front and side yards.. Jen is a friend of Chris and Virginia's and a former SEA captain.
Then we drove to South Dartmouth, MA where we spent the night at Winnie and Jim Phyfe's house.  We took a short trip on their boat, the Aristea, to their mooring.  Jim sailed this boat from New Zealand to New Bedford, MA last year (12,500 miles).  Winnie and Jim lived at 1 Grace Church Street right across from 1 Milton Road in Rye, NY and Jim was a partner at Davis Polk. 
Winnie at the helm.
