Glad you could visit. Welcome! We're The Leightons, Barry and Jacquie, and we're hosting this blog. We'll share photos, stories, and information about our little corner of the world. Our family and guests travel from far away to experience Bayview, The Camp, the blueberries, white-tail deer, lobster, the fields, and wooded trails. Your Comments are welcome. Type in your email address to receive updates to the blog. ...the way life should be.
Our family has carved out a wonderful life in the coastal community of Milbridge, Maine, and now we can share a slice of this world with you. Are you looking for quiet, an ocean view, hiking to amazing vistas, opportunities to walk along the beach, collect sea glass, build a campfire, gaze at the Milky Way, and play? Maybe you enjoy bird watching, whale watching, kayaking, or lake swimming. Bay View might be just your cup of tea. Surrounded by fields of blueberries, cranberries, and lots of romping room for you and your dog friends, our cottage overlooks Pigeon Hill Bay and Bois Bubert Island, a National Wildlife refuge. The town offers a movie theater, pharmacy, restaurants, a museum, and more. McClellans Park calls Milbridge home, spring fed lakes are nearby, and the Narraguagus River meets the ocean here. Our kayaks are yours for the day and we offer a complimentary lobster dinner to our guests.
Barry and I love the annual Winter Harbor Lobster Festival and Lobster Boat Races. It's a full day of craft fairs and lobster bakes. Before we leave the village we have to make sure to visit the Winter Harbor Five and Dime. This is a fun store, packed ceiling to floor with shelves full of souvenirs as well as anything anyone could possibly need. I've found sewing notions, one-of-kind t-shirts, cool bird feeders, and so much more over the years.
