Summer officially ended on Tuesday, and while MP is slowly accepting the cooler weather ahead, she thought she’d share the last of our camping adventures with you. After trips to Quebec and Moosehead Lake, the final leg of our 1,750 mile tour brought us to Campobello Island, New Brunswick. The weather was bright and beautiful in Lubec, but as soon as we reached the Canadian border, a dense fog covered the Roosevelt International Bridge. MP asked the guard at border patrol if this fog was a regular occurrence. The guard looked at her watch and said, “Yup, always around 4:00. Welcome to Canada!” Thanks to the fog, we also noticed the temperature dropped 10 degrees. Despite the change in weather, we all looked forward to seeing our friends at the campsite.
Herring Cove Provincial Park is only a few minutes from the border, and the campground is situated near a mile long beach with views of the Bay of Fundy. There is a small playground area for the kids and if you prefer an easier camping experience, there are rustic cottages for rent.

When our travel plans changed in Canada, we decided to return to Maine and explore Moosehead Lake. DP and MP had never been to the area before. Little did we know how much we were about to discover!
During our first night in Moosehead, we decided to take a camping hiatus and found ourselves an affordable place to stay in Greenville Junction. After a day of driving all of us needed a hot shower and a good night’s rest. This simple, lakefront motel fit the bill.
We were treated to this lake view come morning.

If your family visited the Yarmouth Clam Festival this year, there is a good chance your kids played on the Litl’ Squirts Wooden Pirate Ship. Will Boyle, the owner and founder of the Maine made natural juice, decided an active display for his brand was ideal for his target customer—kids. And boy, was he right! CP#1 and #2 were immediately drawn to the ship, and not only for play, they had a feeling a Litl’ Squirts juice might be in their future.
