Mt Desert Campground – Season Finale

The final weeks at the camp flew by.. our time was filled with  re-decking tent platforms,  cleaning sites for the last time,  and attending staff gatherings.   Before we knew it, we were finished, and the campground sign came down, and we closed up our camper for the winter.   And now we are back in PA..  enjoying the last of the fall foliage and getting ready for winter.

Here are some final pics from the season.  We are already eagerly anticipating heading north in May, but until then,  I am sure that we will find something productive to do!

no sooner did we return from Maine than our co-worker Nikki, her sister Rachul, and King the dog stopped by for a visit as they were heading south..   King looks very comfortable in our Bear Creek house, don’t you think?   They also stopped by the Apple Festival at the orchard..  King spent some time hanging out  in the tiny house..

and this closes the chapter on the 2015 season at Mt Desert Campground..   Workamping turned out to be a wonderful experience in so many ways..  we made new friends,  we  spent loads of time in the outdoors,  we explored Acadia ,   we ate lots of wonderful food,  and we can’t wait to head back in May…
