When Jon and I went to visit Dean in Portland, the three of us ended up escaping the city and heading to Sebago Lake to camp. Camping has been a huge part of our summers since Jon and I started dating. It’s kind of impressive how quickly we can pack to go camping, and how quickly our camp site is set up.
We generally stick to car camping, which means that we put up our tent in a campsite where our car is as well. It’s not quite “glamping” but it’s not backwoods camping either. I have a ridiculous fear of bears, so the backwoods thing will likely never happen.
This time, we camped at Lake Sebago in Maine. It’s one of the biggest lakes in Maine and so beautiful! It’s also home to landlocked Salmon. During this trip; Jon and Dean teased me for my lack of balance (and courage) when I walked from rock to rock to a giant rock, which I climbed only after spending twenty minutes working up enough bravado. The mosquitos were pretty fierce, biting through clothing and basically ignoring the bug repellant. The weather was absolute perfection, high seventies/ low eighties and sunny the whole time. The ice-cream at The Mosquito was delicious, but the names of their sizes were even better: tadpole, peeper, small mouth, large mouth, keeper. I took way too many pictures of the fire and was told “enough” after the sound of the shudder got on Jon’s nerves. The sunsets were also amazing, although hard to capture!
It was a really fun trip. I look forward to camping every year, and this year didn’t disappoint.
