Todaywe will explore the real downeast - Washington County. Our first stop will be the Blackwoods Farm where you will find the softest hand spun alpaca yarn you have ever felt, and actually meet the alpaca that the fleece came from! We will continue on down the coast (actually up and east) to Machias, Jonesport, and Calais. From Calais we can cross over the Canadian border into New Brunswick where we will be staying at the Algonquin Hotel. This is the hotel that inspired Stephen King's "The Shining". After a leisurly walk around St. Andrews, we will probably want to choose one of the local seafood restaurants for dinner. In the morning, after a wonderful buffet brunch at the Algonquin, we will head back over the border into Calais. On the way back, we'll take a slight detour to visit the Roosevelt Campello National Park. This is where President Roosevelt vacationed and his house has been restored for visitors to tour. If we are tired, we might choose to spend the night at one of the motels or B&Bs on the Island.
