I'm ready to go again!!! This was my first Road Scholar trip and I loved the basic down to earth trip, our hotel, and our trip leader was the best.

Birding on Grand Manan Island was interesting and exciting. It was worth the extra effort to get there. We saw whales, too, and had a boat ride 8-10 miles out to sea. The seafood(Lobster also) and the hospitality at the rustic Marathon Inn were outstanding and we identified over 100 birds.

Grand Mañana is a gem. Where else can one view spring migrating birds, stay in a charming, historic Inn, meet fishermen and master boat builders, and eat a lobster dinner with gusto and wild abandon. All in the good company of other Roads Scholar participants. The leader, Jim was outstanding along with top birder, Roger Burrows, and friendly, helpful staff such as Darlene. This program sets the bar for Excellence at Road Scholar.

Great trip, all-around. Not just the birding, but the Inn and it's owner, Jim, and our guide, Roger all made for a wonderful week on Grand Manan.

Anybody that takes this program will not be disappointed. The content of it is very well set up and the leaders and instructors were excellent. The Marathon Inn, while a very old structure fit in perfectly with the Island and for the most part was very comfortable. The meals that were provided at the Inn were above the standards of many restaurants that I have been to. Jim Leslie was an excellent host along with being our leader. He was our cook, driver, and an excellent assistant to our birding instructor Roger Burrows. I would highly recommend to anybody that wants an interesting, educational program related to birdwatching that this is the one to attend.

This was a great opportunity for me to add some birds to my life list...especially warblers, which were easy to see as the tree leaves were not yet fully open. Meals are fantastic and host at the Marathon Inn is wonderful.
