Just a day’s drive from your doorstep. There is an old Bert and I story that tells the tale of Camden Pierce who won a trip to New York City. Upon his arrival home, he was asked about how he liked New York. His response was that there was so much goin’ on at the depot he never did get to see the village. It is odd to me that people fly around the world looking for “Shangri-La” and arrive back home exhausted. Guests often ask us what we do in the winter. Do we go on vacation?
We are often asked what we would do if we had a few extra days in Camden. For those of you joining us for a 3 or 4 day trip here is an incomplete list of ideas we think you might enjoy right here in the mostly immediate Camden area. All of these are day experiences you might enjoy after you have seen all of downtown Camden. Experiences in Acadia National Park are awesome and also pretty well documented so we won’t go into that here. Acadia is about an hour and a half from Cam
Good morning everyone. Christmas by the Sea in Camden is the start of the holiday celebration season in the midcoast. Festivities around town bring folks out in force. Wreathes are hung on each lamp post. Storefronts are beautifully decorated. And the star on Mt Battie can be seen from miles away. Santa arrives by lobster boat. And atop the schooner’s mainmast the crew has placed one gi-normous Christmas tree complete with star on top. Be well. Do good. #windjammerChristmas #
Notice the clammers working the mud flats in the fore ground. They work the tides as well. The flats must have just re-opened. We saw folks clamming out to Isle Au Haut yesterday morning at low tide. This is back breaking work. I love fried clams and appreciate the back muscles that make these delicacies possible on my dinner plate. Have a great day. Be well. Do good. #MaineMaritimeAcademy #TVSateofMaine #workingcraftalongthemainecoast #Castine #Maine #workingwaterfronts
Here a few shots from yesterday. Got reservations??? If the first day is any indicator we are in for a good season. Have a great day. Be well. Do good. Leaving Camden Astern #Camden #Maine #mainewindjammer #windjammersailingvacations
