the eric update - day 354: odin's adventure to the eastern most point in the united states!

i guess maybe odin has been on so many adventures in the past year that visiting the easternmost point in the united states, known as west quoddy head, is no more interesting than his measuring tape!

perhaps we might have to find more exciting extreme points of interest to keep the adventures adventurous!

and yes, the easternmost point in the united states really is known as west quoddy head. east quoddy head is across the water - roughly to the east - on nearby campobello, island, new brunswick.

if you look close you can see the sheer cliffs that form the western edge of grand manan island, new brunswick which is found on the southern boundary of the bay of fundy. it's slightly unusual to be able to see clearly across the 10 mile ( 16 kilometer ) stretch of water as it's often shrouded in fog.

several species of whales pass through the waters off quoddy head during their summer migration and i'm sure we'll try and come up with a way for odin to get as close a look at them as we can withough disturbing them.

deborah moroz: " Seeing all the pictures makes us want to come visit! I wonder how many hours on the plane that would be..."

a quick check of orbitz shows that you can take a one to two stop "redeye" flight out of lax and arrive in lovely bangor, maine about 23-25 hours later. and then it's only a mere two hour drive to machias, unless you could find a local air taxi to fly you in to machias valley aiport :-)

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
