Fall is such a marvelous time to be here…need convincing?
It’s written in stone, I get the Friday of Common Ground Fair off…someone else must man the campground because I’ll be in Unity at 9:00 AM waiting for the gates to open. This wonderful celebration is only 45 minutes from the campground, always around the Fall Solstice. For me, the weeks of anticipation between Fiber College and the fair feels like waiting for Christmas when you’re 10 years old…only now I’m old… Read More

A perfect Friday Night at the Ocean…Tug of war and a huge bonfire almost too hot for roasting marshmallows
This Morning I got up to a beautiful view of the Penobscot Bay from my campsite. It was so calm I had to go kayaking before breakfast. As soon as I left the beach, only out about 500′ out were 3 to 4 porpoises going in and out of the water. I continued toward Sears Island and watched 2 Tug Boats heading toward Mack Point. All around me were seals poking there… Read More
