Searsport Shores Ocean Camping Blog

Now’s the time when the reservations start flooding our world…the sun is shining, the tents and RV’s are begging to be opened up and aired out.  In the Spring, most of my morning and evening work hours are spent in front of the computer, answering e-mails, returning phone calls and booking sites.   This is my 23rd summer of this responsibility and I take it as seriously now as I did before… Read More

Hi Cheryl, This is what it looks like to stand at site 93 and look to the ocean…site 73 is the site in front of this one…both are really wide, shaded wonderful sites…a minute to the bathhouse and playground…2 minutes to the beach…

Between you and me, I wish it would get cold and snow because I’m tired of new projects and that tiny little voice that keeps nudging me to take advantage of our unseasonably warm weather (think 50’s, not 70’s).  But alas, it’s still really nice out and this morning Steven was outside working with a crew by 7AM…this time they’re expanding the workshop space underneath Dad’s deck…’cause boys never have enough room… Read More

We got together this morning for pecan Cinnamon rolls and coffee…just to catch up a bit and talk about the months to come…but as always, the subject drifted to camping…and then to “what are we going to do next summer?”  And the 50’s-60’s weekend was born…just like that. Tentatively slated for July 30-August 1, Searsport Shores Ocean Camping will pull on our poodles skirts, fire up the muscle cars and dance to… Read More

The Penobscot Bay Watch has been collecting information this fall to establish the importance of the upper Penobscot Bay fish nurseries.   Their blog is one of my “must reads” and one of the only RSS feeds I subscribe to.  Although we’re not able to stay as active as we’d like, we do manage to participate sometimes and we were happy to invite the group to use our beach for their research. Trained… Read More

Part of the fun of doing the tree work is smelling the fresh wood chips and burning the brush at the beach…last night the stars were out, the breezes were calm, a few good friends gathered and we drank red wine while the pine branches crackled…might not be the glamor of Desperate Housewives et.al. …but it’s all good to me 😉

We’ve been enjoying unusually warm, calm days here on Penobscot Bay…so I brought my spinning to the seashore yesterday and spent several hours listening to the gulls scream, the young male loons call and watching the seals bob up and down in the Bay.  I tried to capture them in a photo for you but my very best efforts only gave me tiny black dots on the top of the water…definitely not… Read More

Since we’ve been back from the Berkshires, Steven’s been working on the grounds as much as possible…you know you live in Maine when over the course of the week you work outside in snow, sleet and 60 degree sunshine within the time it takes to finish your chores.  I only went outside to take pictures when the sun was out…gray skies and cold rain mean I’m inside cooking soups and playing with… Read More

Columbus Day Weekend is our traditional fall clean-up weekend and the annual festival in town…Typical for our coastal weather we enjoyed warm sunshine, cold winds, rain and glorious sunrises…I think the weather changed every 20 minutes from Thursday to Monday.  But we had a great time and here’s a collage of the activities that filled Searsport.
