Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial Bridge
Campobello Island, New Brunswick
Lubec, Maine

In the foreground (along the water from the left foreground) sits the Lubec breakwall, floating pier and boatramp, the waterfront business district, U.S. Post Office and Customs (at right end of the bridge). The remainder is mostly Lubec residential area. Over the Lubec Narrows is the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial Bridge, which connects Lubec, Maine (United States) to Campobello Island, New Brunswick (Canada).

Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, can be seen nine miles offshore in the hazy distance.

Mostly visible on Campobello Island (at the far side of the bridge) are: (from the left) a lobster pound, New Brunswick Tourism Information Centre and Canada Customs (white buildings at left end of bridge), and the Natural Area of Roosevelt-Campobello International Park, from Upper Duck Pond by the bridge to Liberty Point in the distant center.

Appearing as just a speck in the channel near the right edge of the picture is the Lubec Channel Lighthouse (popularly known as "the Sparkplug," due to its distinctive shape), which guards the tricky, fast-moving tidal currents of Lubec Channel and Narrows, shown here at low tide.
