Sep 13, 2017 - Kayaking Millinocket Lake

2017-09-13. Paddling Millinocket Lake We finally got our kayaks into the water here in the northwoods of Maine. Millonocket Lake is just outside of Baxter State Park and is a very large body of water. The day was beautiful though and we launched in a very secluded cove sheltered from the fresh breeze of the main lake. There were small cabins lining the cove but once out of that shelter, the lake opened up to reveal a shoreline empty of homes or boats. And no wonder. There were hundreds of small wooded islands perched on foundations of huge...

Aug 9, 2013 - Millinocket, Maine

On our way back to Hermon, Maine we stopped to see Millinocket, Maine. We watched a video about Baxter State Park in the visitor center there. The actual park is 15 miles north and not accessible with our truck. We parked across the street from the Appalachian Trail Lodge. The owner of that and the Appalachian Trail Cafe down the street greeted us and recommended his restaurant. We walked on downtown and enjoyed lunch in his quaint cafe. The trail memorabilia on display was quite interesting and the food was excellent. While we were there...

Jul 31, 2010 - Sunday Breakfast

Back into Ron and Gail's for breakfast. He fixed bacon, eggs and toast. All the rest had Bloody Mary's. After breakfast Nancy came over and the four of us went to play golf again. I did much better today. We took Ron, Gail, Murial and Ray to dinner. We got to meet all but one of Gail's daughters. One of them has a 'camp' started next to Gail's brother Ray and Muriel's. She is doing it with the help of Ray. Ray and Muriel's son lives two houses (camps) down the trail in a 'camp' over 100 years old. They call it Church's Camp after the...

Jul 30, 2010 - Lamb Supper

We had a quiet day then went into Ron and Gail's for supper. Ron barbecued 'leg of lamb' that the butcher cut into chunks and Ron grilled. We also had squash, green beans and a salad, all from their garden. It was wonderful. Muriel came in and we met Gail's daughter and granddaughter.

Jul 29, 2010 - Day of Golf

Friday, Murray, Ron, Ron's friend Nancy and I went to Lincoln, ME to play golf. I didn't do so well but not so bad either. When we got back we went to Gail's brother's for supper. His wife Murial is a fantastic cook. We had Pickerel deep fried and in Alfredo sauce. I'm not a fish eater, but this was great! She also had land locked salmon with shrimp/clam dressing, Murray said it was great too. These people have lived in this cabin (they call it a camp) for over 40 years, raised two boys on a road well off the beaten track. It overlooks...

Charmur's Trip 2010

Aug 30, 2007 - Millinocket, ME

We made our way to the Minott's cabin in the woods with impeccable accuracy. It rained hard as we drove out of Millinocket, but wasn't raining when we arrived. Their place looks just the same as it did five years ago and fifteen years ago. They still have no electricity. The "facilities" are a porta-potty and an outhouse. They do have running water in the kitchen due to a gravity feed system of lake water. They have an elaborate solar shower. They rely on a fireplace for heat and propane for cooking. Light is provided by candles, oil lamps...

Jul 18, 2006 - A MOOSE!

This morning we all decided that it would be best to wake up at 5:30am to look for moose. It was hot so we thought they would be out in the early morning. We drove along the Golden Highway and the moose must have been hiding. NO MOOSE! We were all hot so we came back to the campground and played in the pool. After a rest we went on another moose hunt. This time we drove all over Maine and were determined to see a moose. We drove along the Golden Road and all the way to Moose Lake. While we were on a dirt road we saw a moose on the other...
