Posts Tagged ‘summer in maine’

MP always forgets how busy May and June can be. It feels as though our family has been living on recreational fields. We’re regularly driving back and forth to practices, to lacrosse and baseball games, and trying to stay on top of work and home life. Summer break and all of its pleasures— from lazy afternoons on the beach to barbecues with friends— couldn’t come soon enough. And of course, MP can’t wait to share her new book, “The Maine Play Book,” and its fun outdoor adventures with families around the state. If you’re curious, here’s a peek inside its pages:

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.
