In July, Todd and I, feeling like prisoners in our own home, decided to venture out to Northern Maine. It would be Jackson’s first vacation with us. He would stay in a hotel for the first time in his 10 year life. —More about that later. I was also attacked by various bugs but we’ll get into that as well in a bit.
It took us about 18 hours to get to where we were going. Our destination was Cobscook Bay State Park. We drove through a sliver of Pennsylvania, upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and most of Maine to reach our remote camping spot.
Maine required us to submit proof of a negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours of arrival. No problem as we had been stationed in our house for the prior three months.
We arrived at our campsite a few hours before dark. It took us several hours to get our home for the week setup. And what a beautiful site we had.
The first thing I noticed was how dark it was at night and how penetrating the stars were through that darkness. I was able to see the Milky Way with my naked eye. I attempted to capture the beauty with my camera. I could never do it justice though.
Maine was a well needed pandemic break for us. We had the feeling of adventure that we craved so badly. We were able to spend a peaceful five days with nature. And most of all, we were able to spend quality time as a family outside of our normal dwelling.
Over the next few posts, I will share more about out trip. We’ll talk about Jackson and his new status as world class vacationer pooch. I’ll share with you our adventure to the eastern most town in the United States. I will also posts some of my photos and maybe a quick drone video.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy.
