Campobello Island, New Brunswick

Campobello Island in New Brunswick, Cananda, lies just off the coast of Maine.   It is the home of Roosevelt Campobello International Park, which includes the Roosevelt summer home, seen above.  This international park is the only international park (as opposed to national park) in the world, being jointly managed by both Canada and the US.

I am fascinated by the four eastern most provinces of Canada and hope to visit someday (my bucket list is geting pretty long).  I want to see the tide change in the Bay of Fundy, eat scallops in a seaside restaurant in Nova Scotia, ride a bike around Prince Edward Island, and hike in Gros Morne National Park on Newfoundland Island.

This postcard was sent from my uncle to my grandmother, both of whom are long gone now.  When I found this card, I could hear his voice with a very specific intonation, saying "L.L. Bean".


  1. How VERY cool! I love your personal note about this. Lovely.

    Happy PFF!

  2. What a nice card! I didn't realize there even was an international park.

  3. I didn't know there was an international park there.

    I have an L.L. Bean postcard, but I have never been there.

  4. A bike around Prince Edward, wouldn't it be fun to run into Anne of Green Gable?
    Wish you were closer, we could use another hula gal and it sounds like you are ready to join in!
    Thanks for the visit.

  5. Lovely card ... must add to the travel list! Happy PFF!

  6. If you go, just remember that a "bed and breakfast" in Canada isn't an inn like it is in the States; you're staying in somebody's house and having breakfast with their bratty grandkids.

  7. That would be a very nice home indeed to spend summer. Good luck with your travel wish list, it would be a delightful trip.

  8. Interesting that a park should be managed by two different countries! I wonder how easy that is. The summer home looks beautiful.

    Sorry to be so late with my post and my comments this week. Life got in the way. :)
