The past week included a whirlwind three day trip to visit friends in mid-coast maine, my daughter and son in NH, a dear friend whose health is failing – also in NH, and my step daughter in Providence RI .. and then back here to the campground for work saturday morning.. On Sunday evening we were treated to a wonderful Italian night by our employers.. and today we finished the last or our current 4 day work stint.. stay tuned for the next three days events! Here are some pics – in reverse order..
These shots were taken from the dock at the site or our Italian dinner.. we met here earlier in the summer for dinner, but the fog had us socked in.. what a splendid view that we enjoyed this time around:)
We stopped and visited Norma – famous for running the gathering place at the campground which is the hot bed of activity during July and August. she and her husband treated us to a boat ride around Owl’s Head – including a wonderful picnic lunch while we enjoyed the water and the crystal clear view..
one of the highlights of last week was my first hike on the Precipice Trail.. we hiked with new friends from the campground who happen to live in the general region of PA that we call home.. on Kreg and I went up the Precipice while Janet and Martha hiked up the north ridge trail in order to meet us on the top of Champlain mt. After meeting at the top, we enjoyed some snacks and then followed janet on what she thought was a descent of the north ridge trail.. a great plan since that is where the ladies parked… but it was not the north ridge trail… it was the Beechcroft trail which did not lead to the cars.. in fact, the car was a mile and a half away from where we ended up.. but no matter.. we had a nice walk back.. passed the beaver pond where the beaver spent many minutes directly in front of us..

And here is a nice view of the dock at the campground.. in quieter times.. in fact, we were pretty full till the end of this past weekend.. lots of cleanup on sunday.. but this week we actually have some water front sites open .. it is quiet!
