My life oscillates between simple and frazzled but never seems to hover in the middle. If you’ve ever thought you might like to own a campground or work closely with your family…here’s a chance to peek through the windows and see what it’s like. I pledge to post to this blog at least 3 days each week and if I keep to my resolution you’ll ride through the jitters of Springtime reservations, see the gardens as they sprout and mature, live through Fiber College in September and close down the park with us in October. Along the way I’ll introduce you to the interesting characters who stay with us for a day, a week or the entire summer. Life is never boring at Searsport Shores Ocean Camping and I hope that you enjoy the ride. I’ll try to include photos to fill in the blanks and of course the best thing in the world would be if you stopped by and said hello if you happened to be in Searsport.
This is our 15th summer on these 40 acres and we’ve finally reached the point that when something goes wrong, we know the world won’t come crashing down. Our home is set in the middle of a 125 site campground complete with beach, boardwalk, a playground to make any child bubble, recreation hall for potluck suppers, a supply store and lots of flowers. My husband does the hardscaping and I choose the plants. Dad takes care of the financials and the books and I run the front office. We all tend to the needs of our guests and our roles become very blurry during the summer. We all love to cook and eat so every Saturday night there’s a big lobsterbake on the beach…I’ll tell you more about that when July rolls around.
This time of year we work on marketing, planning, resting and now blogging…so welcome to my world!
