Saturday was Bar Harbor Day! We took the ferry from Winter Harbor over to Bar Harbor. We had planned to take the Bar Harbor Ferry, but we got there early and the Schoodic Ferry was still there, so we climbed aboard. It turned out to be a really cool ferry ride. We were the only passengers and the staff was super friendly. This ferry’s staff consisted of scientists who were researching for the College of the Atlantic. I can’t remember what in particular they were studying, but they were fascinating to talk to and the boys learned all sorts of fun stuff. They also had tons of wildlife books that the boys enjoyed looking at. While on the ferry, we were fortunate to see two bald eagles and a bunch of Harbor porpoises. Read More »

In May, we headed up to Haines Falls, New York and camped at North-South Lake Campground. It’s only about an hour north of us so we were able to leave after Carter’s tee -ball game on Saturday and still get there with plenty of time to enjoy the day!
On Wednesday, we left New Bern and headed a little further south to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! We stayed at Myrtle Beach State Park, and loved it. We got there around 4:30 P.M., set up the camper and headed straight to the beach. One of the great features of Myrtle Beach State Park is that it has its own entrance to the beach. We didn’t have to drive into the city everyday and go to the public beach, it was all within the campground.
Carter, who was in kindergarten, had a few extra days off from school around Columbus Day, so it was the perfect time for a fall camping trip. We headed down to Greenbrier State Park in Maryland for a few days. Chris, Ben, Jack, and I stayed there in 2015 on our way to North Carolina and loved it so much we decided to make it a destination trip! Read More »
