Dec 1, 2018 - Home port

As with all these trips the details are so very important. We knew more than a year ago that we would be taking this trip but in the last six months the real work has been taking place. Now with less than a month to go it’s back over the details, recheck the reservations and dig a little deeper. We know the more that we do now the easier the trip will be and we look forward to sharing it .

Jun 25, 2018 - In search of lobster

Cloudy and cool today, high was 62. We drove to Camden Hills sp to camp as we had camped there several years ago and liked it. We remembered buying lobster on a dock somewhere near Rockland or Owls Head so we went in search of it. We finally found it in Owls Head but the guy said all he had were one clawed lobsters that he didn't want sell but to come back tomorrow. We think he just didn't want to go back in and get 3 lobsters. So we drove back through Rockland and bought scallops at Jess's market. Bill made excellent pan seared scallops...

2017-09-19. Camden, Maine I would like to say that we had a wonderful time in Camden, Maine but...the weather has been so awful that we couldn't do anything except walk around the town a little bit. We are staying at Camden Hills State Park and while there is water and electric (50 amp) hookup, we are backed into the trees and between the trees and the dense fog and rain, we have no satellite TV signal at all and the only TV we get "over the air" is Maine Public Television which is great for news and some other programming but...not all...

Breakfast then on the bus at 8am. Today we are heading to Camden, Maine stopping in Machias for lunch at Helen’s Restaurant.

Tonight is our last night together so we had a farewell dinner at the Cedar Crest Restaurant in Camden. My dinner consist of Steak, Chowder, Potato Salad, Cole Slaw and a glass of wine. Irma’s the same except she didn’t have the chowder. After the dinner Dee & Henry from...

Aug 11, 2015 - Belfast

First rainy day in quite a while so we headed up to Belfast to walk along the harbor way trail. We passed by some beautiful sailboats and huge yatchs along the way. On our way back we stopped at the Marshall Wharf brewery company and got their Big Twitch IPA. Great tasting beer vs doing laundry. Stopped at a seafood market and bought fresh haddock which we will cook tomorrow night since it's raining.Rented a movie and enjoyed listening to the rain.

Aug 10, 2015 - Fernalds neck preserve

We are still at Camden Hills sp and have totally enjoyed staying in one place vs traveling. We ate a great Italian sub for lunch and then headed off to find the hike at the preserve which was only about 20 minutes away. It was a nice walk in a forest on lake Meticuncook for about 2 miles. We came back and sat at the ocean overlook across from the cc and drank a Boothbay craft beer before heading back to our site 74. Well, lo and behold, 2 girls have set up camp on our site despite our stove sitting on the table and Bill's shoes on the...

Aug 9, 2015 - Cool weather

It was so nice to wake up hearing a barred owl call during the night. They hoot and call to each other off and on during the night. We don't hear that much at home. We went down to the beach site of Camden Hills and hiked the shore trail down to the beach. The"beach" is a rocky area hard to walk on but you're on the water. We came back up to the parking lot and sat and drank a boothbay craft beer looking out at penobscot bay. We had bought kielbasa and fresh lettuce and cukes at the farmers market so that was supper tonight.

Aug 8, 2015 - Owls head lighthouse

We stayed again at Camden Hills having scored a great quiet campsite #74. This maybe the best site here or 75. At first they said no more sites since it was the weekend but by 11 am several opened. We took today to go see owls head lighthouse which was beautiful. Views are great and we had stopped at the farmers market in Camden to get corn, cheese,and a baguette. Drove out to the lobster company there and bought 2 softshell lobsters for $5 lb. Best price yet and pulled up out of the sea for you. Headed on down to boothbay craft brewery to...

Aug 7, 2015 - Lincolnville

Our legs have recovered from the hike the other day so we thought a nice bike ride through the trails of Camden Hills would be perfect. We set off on the multiuse trail outside of Lincolnville to bike the ski trail. Well, well, a trail that is rated one on a scale of 3 was straight up for 1.5 and I had to walk. We don't want to see a 3 rated trail! We rode 4.7 miles and had to finish it off with a beer and oysters at the pub in Lincolnville beach. Came back and ate lobster again!

Aug 6, 2015 - Camden

We took today to explore Camden and Rockland since our legs are sore from yesterday! We walked around the towns and looked in shops. We drove up the road to Mt.Battie for a most amazing view of Camden harbor and the Atlantic. A drive was sure easier than the hike. Decided to give lobster a break and had chicken stirfry.

Aug 5, 2015 - Camden Hills sp

Before we left Old Quarry, we went down to the launch area to watch kayakers take off for the many islands that are just off of Deer Isle. The water was perfectly flat and the views are amazing. We drove back up the island and stopped at a farmers market to get lettuce, tomatoes, snow peas and blueberries. All of the fresh produce is so good! We joined the traffic on US 1 and headed to Camden Hills sp just outside the quaint town of Camden. This park is beautiful with lots of hiking and biking trails. We decided to hike Mt. Megunticook...

Oct 6, 2014 - Camden, Maine

After visiting Maine-ly Maine we headed off to another favorite place in Maine, the town of Camden and Mount Battie State Park. We first wandered through town and then had lunch at Cappy's Chowder House. I had an unusual sandwich - a Haddock Rueben sandwich. It was different but not something I'd want on a continual basis! Then we stopped into a few stores along the main street. The fist one we walked into was an Art Gallery called the Duck Trap Trading Company. We were wandering through a lot of art that was too rich for our blood. There...
