Schoodic Peninsula, ME

We were stoked to have a campsite at Schoodic Woods on the Schoodic Peninsula in Acadia National Park for two weeks. However, due to the complication of our current-resident 10-year-old needing a pool for entertainment so that I can get work done (poolside work still gets done!) during the week, we ended up only spending a long weekend in our excellent campsite at Schoodic.

Camden, ME

We came to Camden in search of a campground with a pool. Basic requirement of 10-year old life Apparently, pools are a basic need to sustain the life of a 10-year old in the summer months.

Boothbay Brewery & RV Park We made idiots of ourselves rolling into Boothbay Brewery & RV Park, having ignored the welcome email detailing that you should utilize the traffic circle to turn around and access the brewery’s road rather than making a 25-degree turn onto the road.

After finishing up a Thursday afternoon of work-related tasks, we convinced Dexter yet again…

Old Orchard Beach, ME

We splurged on a campsite at Hid’n Pines Family Campground, one of a slew of family-type resort campgrounds owned by the same company that dot the Old Orchard Beach area. The spot provided us the ability to pop into Portland for an evening where we met up with our friend Holly for dinner and a saunter about town.
