Here are some of my favorite shots of those delightful days spent in The Pine Tree State:
Left: Scenic view of a river running near where Sarah lives;
Right: Beautiful falls running under some harbor shops and restaurants.
Left: The Camden Public Library;
Right: The ever-picturesque Camden Harbor, complete with ships, dock, and everything!
I loved the way this little entryway was almost hidden by trees and bushes growing over the arch, almost like an entrance into a secret garden, leading to...
This- a lovely amphitheater, with grass-covered stones and tiny wild strawberries
growing in the crevices of each step- What a charming find!
The Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse
Sarah showing said lighthouse both fear? and love!
Merryspring- the place where Sarah works.
Left: Sarah teaching kids about tracking different kinds of wildlife.
Right: The thriving Children's Garden on the grounds of Merryspring.
(Note the lovely, hand-painted signs, made by Sarah herself.)
Some of the beautiful gardens on the grounds at Merryspring.
A vernal spring at Merryspring- I believe it's the spring for which the nature center was named.
Eating dinner at the Old World Potato Company in downtown Camden.
(Note the size of that potato!!!)
Left: My dinner included that huge potato and a cup of tomato bisque soup.
Right: I loved the little glasses they served with our bottled root beer!
The highly-touted, picturesque view of Camden Harbor from Mt. Battie.
As you can see, the acclaimed view was obscured by a thick fog on the day that Sarah and I hiked up the cliff. Alas.
"Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?"
(This tower is at the top of Mt. Battie- it looked very Monty Python-esque in the mist there :)
Scenic picnic area outside of Camden.
"Quoth the raven, 'Nevermore.'"
These are just some of the beautiful flowers growing around Camden.
And one of my favorites shots- me and my wonderful sister.
Thank you for sharing a wonderful weekend with me!
